MIAMI -- Miami forward Shawn Marion missed the Heat's game against New Jersey on Saturday night because of back spasms.

Marion is averaging 11.5 points and 9.2 rebounds. Daequan Cook started in his place.

The Nets also played without a key player. New Jersey guard Devin Harris was inactive so he can rest a sore right hamstring.
