Kapono Joins Wade on Miami Injury List

MIAMI (AP) _ Dwyane Wade started rehabilitating his dislocated
left shoulder today, a piece of good news for the Miami Heat.
Jason Kapono, though, may be gone for a while _ adding to the
team's seasonlong list of injuries.
Heat coach Pat Riley said today that Kapono will miss an
``indefinite'' number of games after being diagnosed with a high
left ankle sprain. He is the N-B-A's leading three-point shooter at
51.3 percent.
Kapono was hurt yesterday in an 88-81 win over Atlanta. He
jumped to defend a shot by Joe Johnson, landed on teammate James
Posey's foot and the ankle turned inward. X-rays were negative, but
Kapono had more tests today to determine the severity of the
injury. He was then placed in a hard cast.
The team said Kapono would be reevaluated in 10 days.
Riley says (quote) : ``It's going to be awhile.''
