The Miami Heat won't have Dwyane Wade for tonight's game against the Detroit Pistons after the guard was suspended one game without pay for "flailing his leg and making contact with the groin" of Charlotte's Ramon Sessions, the NBA announced.

The incident ccurred with 8:12 left in the fourth quarter of Miami's win over the Bobcats Wednesday in Charlotte.

NBA executive vice president of basketball operations Stu Jackson announced the suspension late Thursday.

Wade posted on his Twitter account that he is "far from being a dirty player -- my intent was never 2 kick Ramon Sessions," adding that his movement was a response to Sessions' contact.
