WASHINGTON — Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade was scratched from Wednesday’s game against the Washington Wizards because of shoulder soreness.

Coach Erik Spoelstra said that Wade, who played 21 minutes and scored two points in the Heat’s win over Milwaukee on Tuesday, would test his shoulder before the game.

Miami declared him out about a half-hour before tipoff.

Wade has missed two games this season.

Gerald Green will start in Wade’s place.
