Butler’s return comes not a moment too soon, as the Heat are mired in a five-game losing streak while the Kings are on a three-game winning streak. Unfortunately, Goran Dragic and Avery Bradley remain out so the Heat will be shorthanded in the backcourt.
- Goran Dragic: out (groin)
- Avery Bradley: out (knee)
- Maurice Harkless: day to day (thigh)
- Meyers Leonard: inactive list (shoulder)
- Chris Silva: inactive list (hip)
- Jahmi’us Ramsey: out (left groin)
- Nemanja Bjelica: out (back)
- DaQuan Jeffries: out (left ankle)
Tipoff: 8:00 p.m.
