MIAMI — The Heat will be without forward Okaro White in Wednesday’s home game against the Wizards.

White, 25, suffered a left foot injury in Tuesday’s practice. He will be re-evaluated Wednesday.

White is averaging 3.3 points and 1.8 rebounds in 13.3 minutes in six games this season.

Recently, White started four consecutive games at power forward. But since Justise Winslow took that spot in the starting lineup in Miami’s win over Phoenix on Nov. 8, White has not played.

White also missed the Heat’s season-opening loss to the Magic on Oct. 18 with a left shoulder injury he suffered in the preseason.
