The Heat will be without a significant weapon for Monday's matchup against the Atlanta Hawks. Dwyane Wade will not play due to soreness and will be replaced in the starting lineup by Ray Allen.

Wade missed the previous matchup with the Hawks with James Jones getting the start on that night. Miami will also have Michael Beasley in uniform for the first time in several weeks due to a hamstring injury.

The development does set up an intriguing matchup at the shooting guard position where two of the league's premier shooters will be matched against each other in Allen and Atlanta's Kyle Korver.

The Hawks will be without Cartier Martin due to an ankle injury. Gustavo Ayon was listed as questionable but will dress and be available according to the AJC's Chris Vivlamore.
