Tyler Herro (hand) expected to play for Heat in Game 5

Miami Heat guard Tyler Herro (right hand fracture) has been upgraded to questionable and is expected to play in Game 5 against the Denver Nuggets on Monday.

What It Means:

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Heat are optimistic Herro can avoid a setback and play through the discomfort in his hand. He hasn't played since injuring his hand in the first game of the first round versus the Milwaukee Bucks. Max Strus, Gabe Vincent, Kyle Lowry, and Duncan Robinson are candidates for fewer minutes if Herro is active. However, the Heat will likely restrict Herro's workload in his first game back.

Herro averaged 33.3 FanDuel points in 34.9 minutes per game during the regular season, with 20.1 points, 5.4 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 0.8 steals, and 3.0 3-pointers. numberFire's models currently project him for 14.6 minutes and 12.9 FanDuel points in Game 5 on Monday.
