PHILADELPHIA — Justise Winslow continues to make progress in his recovery, but he’s not ready to make a return yet.

Winslow will not play in Monday’s game against the 76ers due to a sprained left wrist. It’s the fourth consecutive game Winslow has missed with the injury.

“I’m definitely making progress,” Winslow said after Monday’s shootaround session. “I think the last couple days have really helped in just getting some of the soreness out of there. But it’s still a little ways away, but it’s definitely getting better.”

Winslow will work on his conditioning before Monday’s game in Philadelphia, but he said he’s still “day to day” with the injury.

“Hopefully I wake up tomorrow and it doesn’t hurt,” Winslow said.

Guard Wayne Ellington (right thigh contusion) and center Willie Reed (hyper-extended right knee) will also miss Miami’s game against Philadelphia.

Ellington is getting closer to making his regular-season debut, though. He participated in his second consecutive shootaround session Monday.
