Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade will miss his second consecutive game tonight, a road contest against the Orlando Magic, the team announced.

Wade has a sore right knee and the team listed his status as day-to-day. Wade is averaging 21.5 points, five rebounds and five assists per game this season.

Wade did not play in the team’s 109-77 rout of the Charlotte Bobcats on Sunday. The Heat have won a franchise record 26 straight games and are aiming for the all-time record of 33 straight set by the Los Angeles Lakers in the 1971-72 season.

The team starts a four-game trip that begins in Orlando on Monday, with games against Chicago, New Orleans and San Antonio. The Heat are currently 2½ games ahead of the Spurs in the race for the league’s best record.
