Game Story:

The Miami Heat (34-16) are hoping to get a win when they visit the Sacramento Kings (19-31). That may be a little more difficult than usual because the Heat will likely be without All-Star Jimmy Butler who hurt his shoulder Wednesday night in L.A.

The Heat are on their second game of a 5-game road trip before the All-Star break. But it will possibly be their first chance to suit up Andre Iguodala, Jae Crowder, and Solomon Hill — although it’s unclear if they are ready to go or not.

The Kings also made some moves on the trade deadline and so these teams have a much different look than the one they had 18 days ago when Sacramento pushed the Heat to overtime in Miami without Jimmy Butler.

FiveThirtyEight has the Heat with just a 42% chance to win tonight.
