MIAMI (AP) — Dwyane Wade’s right hamstring remains sore, and the Miami Heat star guard says he’s undergoing a lengthy round of treatments to try and get back on the court as soon as possible.

Wade pulled the hamstring 3:17 into the Heat preseason opener against Detroit on Tuesday night and did not return. He expects to miss up to two weeks, although no timetable for a return has been formally announced.

Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said he anticipates that Wade will need an MRI to determine the severity of the strain. Wade says no further tests are scheduled, just treatment.

Wade will travel with the Heat for preseason games at Kansas City (against Oklahoma City) and San Antonio this weekend, but will not play.
