Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade will miss his second consecutive game when the Heat travel upstate to take on the Orlando Magic Wednesday night.

“There’s no other way to assess it other than day by day,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra told reporters Wednesday evening.

Despite Wade missing a game for the second straight night and for the third time this season, Spoelstra doesn’t seem to be bothered or worried about the status of one of his superstars.

“We’re very encouraged about where he is at this part of the season,” Spoelstra said ”Our message to the Heat Nation is that this is a part of the process.”"

In nine games, the 10-year veteran out of Marquette is averaging 16.7 points, 5.2 assists and 4.6 rebounds per game. He’s shooting 48.0% from the field, 28.6% from beyond the arc and 61.2% from the free throw line.

The Heat won’t play again until they host the Magic Saturday, meaning Wade will have a complete week off.

James Jones started in Wade’s place Tuesday night. He had seven points in 16 minutes.
