Tyler Herro considers not returning to Heat lineup amid NBA Finals

Tyler Herro was on track to return to the Miami Heat lineup on Wednesday’s Game 3 of the NBA Finals vs the Denver Nuggets, but this may eventually not happen.

The star sharpshooter has returned to team practice, but it seems he hasn’t fully recovered from a hand injury that has sidelined for almost two months.

“I spoke with Tyler Herro ahead his Game 2 pregame routine and he told me he experiences both soreness and swelling in the right hand after shooting and he can feel the soreness when he’s making a “follow through” shooting motion.

“He also shared his consideration of not wanting to come back and mess up the rhythm of the team. While there was hope he’d return for Game 2 as he’s participating in all aspects of team practice, he’s making sure the time is right for his return to the court,” Ros Gold-Onwude of ESPN tweeted.

Tyler Herro is working on his return to the lineup after suffering a hand injury in Game 1 of the opening round of the NBA playoffs vs the Milwaukee Bucks. Herro has been out since April 17 with a broken hand.

En route to the NBA Finals, the Heat eliminated three teams who finished higher than them in the East standings and became just the second No.8 seed in league history to reach the Finals.

The series with the Nuggets (1-1) now shifts to Miami for Games 3 and 4 this week, while Game 5 takes place in Denver on Monday, June 12.
