MIAMI (AP) _ Miami Heat center Alonzo Mourning, bothered by a sore left ankle, sat out Monday night's game against Patrick Ewing and the New York Knicks.

The Heat's All-Star center, who hurt his ankle Saturday in Washington, didn't dress for the game, the first he has missed this season. Miami guard Voshon Lenard, who has started 13 times this season, also missed the game because of a lower abdominal strain.

Mourning said he won't travel to San Antonio for Tuesday night's game.
