Dwyane Wade did not practice with the Miami Heat on Sunday because of migraine symptoms, a problem he's battled for years.

His status is unclear for Game 2 of Miami's first-round series against the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday night.

Heat coach Erik Spoelstra says Wade was getting rest and taking medication, though he cautions that it's "too soon" to know if Wade will be able to participate in shootaround Monday morning.

Wade had 17 points in Saturday's 97-89 Heat victory, five of those points coming in the final 1:34. Spoelstra says Wade had some migraine signs Saturday and played through them.
