MIAMI -- Heat coach Pat Riley said at Wednesday's practice that point guard Jason Williams will sit out the balance of the regular season due to tendinitis in his right knee.

Riley said the hope is to have Williams back for the April 22 start of the postseason, and then have the injury dealt with surgically in the offseason.

Riley said there were no signs of a knee injury when the team dealt guard Eddie Jones to Memphis in the offseason for Williams and forward James Posey.

Riley said he would use Gary Payton, Derek Anderson, and, at times, Dwyane Wade at point guard to fill the void.

Riley said the team also may add another point gaurd, although that would require the team to make a roster cut.

He's out for the rest of the regular season, which really doesn't mean much. The Heat has locked up one of the top three seeds, though I don't know they could've held off the Nets even with Jason in the lineup. Being a two or three seed won't make much of a difference in the playoffs, especially in the East.

Smart is believing half of what you hear. Genius is knowing which half.
