Big news for the Heat, as Ira Winderman confirmed that Jimmy Butler would be available on Saturday night after missing the previous 10 games while being sidelined in the league’s health and safety protocols.
The Miami Heat have struggled without Butler, going 2-8 in his absence, while seeing a dip in their offensive production. Butler got off a slow start on the season but was trending in the right direction before his absence. Butler and his 15.8 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 5.3 assists per game should immediately slot back into the starting lineup. Butler carries an $8,600 salary on tonight’s NBA slate at FanDuel against a Sacramento Kings team that is last in defensive rating in the NBA.
The Heat gets the Kings on the second night of a back-to-back after the Kings beat the Toronto Raptors last night. Miami is -6.5 favorites with a total set at 225.5 at FanDuel Sportsbook.
