The last match scheduled for this Monday night will be between the Sacramento Kings, coming from yesterday's win vs the Clippers also featured, hosting the Miami Heat. There are several players ruled out for this game. De'Aaron Fox and Bam Adebayo will be the main characters.
The Heat visit the Kings' arena plagued by injuries. The huge brawl that occurred in their game against New Orleans Pelicans caused that Jimmy Butler, for example, will not be able to participate in tonight's game due to suspension. In addition, the Florida franchise (7th in the Eastern Conference with a 31-25 record) has several players out with different injuries.
On the other hand, Sacramento "breathes" by not having to face Miami with all its players available for the second game of their back-to-back. The franchise Kings beat the Clippers to move with a 33-23 record into fifth place in the Western Conference, taking advantage of the Dallas Mavericks' setback against the Indiana Pacers to overtake them in the standings.
