Erik Spoelstra returned to the Miami Heat ahead of their game against the Sacramento Kings on Monday.
Head coach Spoelstra missed Saturday's 110-95 loss to the Brooklyn Nets for personal reasons, with assistant coach Chris Quinn filling in.
However, Miami confirmed that the 60-year-old was back with the team for the meeting with the Kings at FTX Arena.
Ahead of Monday's game, the Heat (47-28) had the second-best record in the Eastern Conference but sat below the Boston Celtics. The Milwaukee Bucks and the Philadelphia 76ers were half a game back in a tight top four.
