The Miami Heat will hope to get back to South Beach for at least one more Finals game, and they’ll need to win Monday in Game 5 in Denver in order to do that. The Heat have not been able to get Tyler Herro back in the series even though he was expected to return. Will Herro come back Monday? Here’s the latest on the rising guard’s status.
Tyler Herro injury updates
Update: Herro is officially in for the Heat, and he’ll be in a role off the bench like he was most of the season. We’ll see how much of an impact he can have in this one.
Update: Herro has been upgraded to questionable and according to Adrian Wojnarowski, will attempt to return tonight as the Heat face elimination in the 2023 NBA Finals. We don’t know if Herro has been cleared yet officially but it seems like the Heat are pushing this last desperation button with his potential return.
Miami's Tyler Herro -- who was upgraded to questionable -- is expected to suit up for Game 5 and attempt a return tonight, sources tell ESPN.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) June 12, 2023
Herro has been ruled out for Game 5, and there’s little chance he’s going to be cleared for this series even if the Heat were able to force Game 6. Miami has missed Herro’s offense and ability to space the floor consistently in this series. With Herro still out, Max Strus and Duncan Robinson will continue to have bigger roles in the rotation. Caleb Martin will also get some additional usage with Herro still out.
