The Miami Heat will attempt to remain unbeaten on a six-game road trip when they visit the struggling Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday night.

The Heat are 4-0 on the excursion after notching a 121-110 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Monday night.

The Trail Blazers have dropped eight straight games, matching their worst stretch during a poor season. It is their third streak of at least seven defeats this season.

Miami will be playing the second game of a road back-to-back set but will get Jimmy Butler and Nikola Jovic back after each served a one-game suspension on Monday.

Thomas Bryant will serve his second game of a three-game ban on Tuesday, also stemming from the New Orleans fracas.

Heat guard Tyler Herro could be back after missing the Sacramento game due to a hyperextended left knee. An MRI exam came back clean.
