Miami Heat’s Tyler Herro Sidelined with Ankle Injury, Expected to Return Soon
Miami Heat’s shooting guard Tyler Herro sustained an ankle injury during a recent game against the Memphis Grizzlies, causing him to be sidelined for at least two weeks. The incident occurred during the first quarter when Herro attempted a floater and landed on the foot of Grizzlies center Jaren Jackson.
The player immediately knew something was wrong when he heard a crunch upon landing on Jackson’s foot. Experts later diagnosed him with a grade 2 ankle sprain and stated that his condition will be re-evaluated after two weeks.
This setback is not the first time Herro has faced an injury. Previously, he broke his shooting hand, which caused him to miss several games. Despite this, he continued to play for a while before eventually leaving the game at halftime. The fracture was later confirmed, leading Herro to miss out on a few weeks of action and ultimately appear in the NBA Finals.
Reflecting on his latest injury, Herro expressed his disappointment but vowed to keep working through it. In his absence, the team will rely on Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo to step up and fill the void. Head coach Erik Spoelstra expressed confidence in the abilities of both players to meet expectations and help the team maintain its momentum, as they are currently on a five-game winning streak.
The Heat will face the challenge of competing without Herro, but the team remains focused on their goal of winning the championship. With Herro expected to return relatively quickly, all eyes will be on the team’s performance in his absence.
