ATLANTA -- Backup center Alonzo Mourning missed Miami's game against Atlanta on Wednesday night because of a right knee contusion.

Heat coach Pat Riley said Mourning was day-to-day. The 14-year veteran either was hit or kicked in Miami's 97-83 loss to Orlando on Sunday that ended a nine-game winning streak.

Mourning has averaged 9.0 points, 5.1 rebounds and 2.4 blocked shots in 65 games.
