The Miami Heat and Denver Nuggets will play Game 2 of the 2023 NBA Finals Sunday, with Denver looking to go up 2-0 in the series. The status of Heat shooting guard Tyler Herro is something everyone has their eyes on, especially those who believe the Heat can come back in this series. Here’s the latest on Herro ahead of Game 2.

Tyler Herro injury updates

Update: Herro has officially been ruled out.

Herro is officially listed as out for Sunday’s contest, but there’s a possibility he could still be upgraded ahead of the game. Game 3 was reported as Herro’s target to return to the court, and that still looks to be the most likely spot where he does come back.

With Herro out, Max Strus and Duncan Robinson will continue to get solid minutes in the backcourt. Strus is hoping to bounce back after going 0-10 from the floor in Game 1, while Robinson went just 1-6.
