The Miami Heat are on schedule alert tonight at Charlotte. First, this will be Miami's fifth game in seven days, its third game in four days, and the second of a back-to-back set with travel involved, no less. This will also be the fourth straight road game for the Heat. The Heat won in Milwaukee on Wednesday, then headed to Brooklyn -- losing an hour in the process -- and beat the Nets on Friday. And immediately after facing those Nets, the Heat booked it to Charlotte to face the Hornets less than 24 hours later. Meanwhile, the Hornets will enter this game with a two-day rest advantage and will be on the fifth day of an 11-day homestand.

Could Kemba be on the move? (0:48)

Bobby Marks ESPN 

The Kemba Walker $12M contract is one of the best values in the NBA and ranks 19th among point guards. Walker is extension eligible in the offseason (6 months after a possible trade) at a starting salary of $14.4M. A team that has cap space can renegotiate the Walker contract up until Feb. 28. The 2018-19 $12M salary can also be renegotiated starting July 6.

The Hornets have been encouraging teams to make offers for Kemba Walker and are willing to use the All-Star point guard to incentivize a trade that includes one of Charlotte's less desirable contracts, sources told ESPN.
