Injury Report

According to Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee, Huerter is listed as questionable for Tuesday’s game against Utah due to back soreness

It’s unclear when Huerter sustained the injury, but Sacramento’s medical staff will keep a close eye on him ahead of Tuesday’s game. He’ll most likely put his back through a morning shootaround and pregame warmups to see if he can play..

The Utah Jazz (19-20; 21-18 ATS) are on a four-game losing streak after falling to the Miami Heat 126-123 at home on Saturday.

Utah shot 43.2% from the field (17-for-40 from deep), while the Heat made 50.6% of their shots. In the paint, the Jazz were outscored 54-32. Lauri Markkanen led Utah with 29 points and 14 rebounds, Jordan Clarkson had 22 points and three assists, and Malik Beasley added 17 points off the bench.
