According to a report from Joe Vardon of, Cleveland Cavaliers guard Dwyane Wade will be held out of Tuesday night’s home game against the Atlanta Hawks due to soreness in his left knee.

Prior to Tuesday night’s game, Cavs head coach Tyronn Lue stated that LeBron James would pick up the slack at point guard in Wade’s absence. Coach Lue also noted that Kevin Love, who’s been dealing with soreness in his hip, would start at center as Tristan Thompson will play for the first time since injuring his calf on Nov. 1.

“Kevin’s in, Tristan’s in, but D-Wade is out tonight,” Coach Lue said during his media availability. “He’s been experiencing a little soreness the last couple of games. And today, going through shoot-around, he had some soreness, and they did some tests on him. The best thing for him is to sit out for tonight.”

Without question, the Cavs will miss Wade on the floor. In his 26 games played this season, Wade, now 35 years of age, has turned in averages of 11.5 points on 46.4 percent shooting from the field, 3.9 assists, and 3.6 rebounds.

The Cavs and Hawks are set to tip at 7:00 p.m. EST inside Quicken Loans Arena. Fox Sports Ohio and Fox Sports Southeast will have live broadcast coverage.
