Herro is coming closer to playing, but not quite there yet, according to Heat coach Erik Spoelstra.
“[He’s] definitely made progress but is not quite ready to step into this kind of intensity of game,” According to ESPN’s Coley Harvey, Spoelstra remarked.
Herro recorded a career-high 20.7 points, five rebounds, and four assists in his third season with Miami. In 2022, his numbers helped him win the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year award. Herro has averaged 13.5 points per game in the playoffs, along with 4.1 rebounds and 2.9 assists.
