MIAMI (AP) Dwyane Wade left Miami's game against Milwaukee Tuesday night in the third quarter with another hamstring injury, after Luol Deng and Chris Andersen were held out with injuries.

Wade strained his right hamstring, the same one that sidelined him earlier this month.

It only added to a night of injury woes for Miami, which used its 18th starting lineup in 45 games because Deng has a calf injury and Andersen has elbow and back injuries. There is no timetable for either's return, though neither is expected to miss significant time.

Danny Granger took Deng's spot in Miami's starting lineup and Hassan Whiteside took Andersen's place. Both were making their fourth start of the season.

For the Bucks, Ersan Ilyasova left in the first half with a strained groin.
