Justise Winslow (back) will be out for the next 2 weeks and will be re-evaluated at that time.
Tyler Herro will not play tonight because of a left knee bruise. Sustained knee bruise in yesterday's practice.— Anthony Chiang (@Anthony_Chiang) January 15, 2020
Herro bruised his knee during practice Tuesday and will be held out — seemingly as a precaution, considering it’s just a contusion. The rookie had been playing 20+ minutes consistently for the Heat, so Miami will need to lean on its other guards to pick up the slack and 3-point shooting.
Fantasy Basketball Analysis: Miami Heat G Tyler Herro
With Herro out, Kendrick Nunn, Duncan Robinson and Derrick Jones Jr. should all see more minutes at shooting guard in a strong matchup vs. the Spurs. Nunn ($5,100) and Robinson ($4,300) are the most appealing plays. The Heat should have an easy time with the Spurs at home, so if the game gets out of hand, both Robinson and Nunn will get plenty of run in garbage time.
