The Sacramento Kings are in Salt Lake City to face the Utah Jazz on Saturday night, but for the game they will be without two-time NBA All-Star Domantas Sabonis.
The star power front was kicked out of the game for personal reasons, and his status can be seen in the tweet embedded below from the Underdog NBA Twitter account.
Sabonis started his season with the Indiana Pacers but was traded to the Kings at the trade deadline last month.
While Sabonis is a very good player, the Kings are in a tough spot as they sit at the 13th seed in the Western Conference.
They are 24-44 in their 68 games this season and will likely miss the playoffs.
