BOSTON (AP) - LeBron James is sitting out Miami’s game against Boston with back spasms Wednesday night.

His absence against the Celtics comes a day after he scored 43 points in the Heat’s 100-96 win at Cleveland. He had 25 points in the first quarter when he made 10 of 11 shots and five 3-pointers.

The Heat have won their other two games without James. They beat Portland 108-107 on Dec. 28 when he had a strained groin and Chicago 93-79 on Feb. 23 when he was sidelined with a broken nose.

Dwyane Wade is back in action for the Heat after missing the win against the Cavaliers while resting his sore knees. Greg Oden is inactive to give him a chance to rest after starting the previous two games.
