Injury: Hand

Injury status: Out

UPDATE (Jun. 12):

Tyler Herro is still sidelined due to a broken hand. Will he take part in this life-or-death game? They’ll need him or someone else to step up because his successors, Max Strus and Gabe Vincent, have been awful.

UPDATE (Jun. 09):

Tyler Herro (hand) will miss Game 4 of the NBA Finals against the Nuggets on Friday, according to Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald.

Herro has not yet been cleared to play, according to coach Erik Spoelstra, and the 23-year-old will be officially out for another game as the Heat attempt to level the series.

Herro’s next appearance will be Monday in Denver, but Spoelstra’s latest comments placed some question on his availability for the rest of the series.

UPDATE (Jun. 07):

Tyler Herro (hand) will miss Game 3 of the NBA Finals against Denver on Wednesday, according to Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel.

Herro was expected to return for Game 2 or 3, but he’s been dealing with stiffness and swelling in his surgically repaired hand, which has pushed back his return date.

The shooting guard has been fully participating in recent Miami practices, but it’s unclear whether he’ll be cleared for game action at any point during the series.

UPDATE (Jun. 03):

Tyler Herro (hand) is out for Game 2 of the NBA Finals on Sunday, according to Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald.

Though there were reports that Herro would return for Game 2, it appears the guard will be out for at least one more game as he recovers from hand surgery related to an injury sustained in the first round of the playoffs.

Though it’s improbable, the Heat might still upgrade Herro before kickoff, so fans should keep an eye on his situation as the game approaches on Sunday.

UPDATE (Apr. 19):

Tyler Herro (hand) said Tuesday that his surgery is set for Friday and that he expects to be out for four to six weeks, according to Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald.

Herro broke his right hand’s middle and ring fingers while diving for a loose ball just before halftime in Sunday’s Game 1 win over Milwaukee.

According to The Athletic’s Darnell Mayberry, head coach Erik Spoelstra has already ruled the dynamic shooting guard out for the rest of the playoffs, but given Herro’s timetable, he may be able to return if Miami advances to the NBA Finals.

UPDATE (Apr. 17):

Tyler Herro suffered a serious hand injury during the win over Milwaukee.

Herro was in immediate pain after injuring himself late in the second quarter while diving for a loose ball. He even tried to run off the field, but was forced to stay out for the final minute of the first half.

NBA insider Chris Haynes reported that Tyler Herro will be out for at least a month:

“Miami Heat guard Tyler Herro broke the middle and ring finger on his shooting hand and is expected to be out approximately 4-6 weeks, league sources tell @NBAonTNT,@BleacherReport.”

UPDATE (Mar. 04):

Herro had 29 points (11-18 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT) in 39 minutes of Friday’s 122-120 loss to the Knicks. He had 11-18 FG, 5-8 3Pt, and 2-2 FT. He also had 8 rebounds, 6 assists, and 1 steal.

Herro had been due for a good game, since he had only scored 19 points in his last two. Kyle Lowry’s knee problem has kept him out of 11 games so far, so we can expect Herro to keep making up for Lowry’s lack of playmaking.
