Huge news coming out of Miami states that Tyler Herro will not be available for game-4 vs. the Boston Celtics. ESPN reporter Nick Friedell reported that head coach Erik Spoelstra said Herro won’t be playing tonight. With Jimmy Butler also a doubt, this will be a huge blow for the Miami Heat and their ambitions to win game-4. Understandably, the fans aren’t happy with the news. Tyler Herro has been a big part of this Miami Heat team for the last couple of years.

His ability to consistently hit three-pointers will be gravely missed. Even though he has struggled a bit from the 3-point territory this postseason, he has the ability to light up any moment. During the regular season, Herro averaged 20.7 points, 5 rebounds, and 4 assists per game.

Will Tyler Herro be a huge miss?

Because of knee inflammation, Jimmy Butler sat out the second half of the Heat’s game-3 win. Also, Herro was rested in the final 8 minutes of the game due to a groin injury. Without their best scorer in Butler, Bam Adebayo had to step up. And he did exactly that with team-high 31 points along with 10 rebounds. This double-double from Adebayo helped keep the Celtics at bay, who made serious strides to come back into the game in TD Garden.

Tyler Herro registered 8 points, 2 rebounds, and 3 assists in 20 minutes in game-3. And Jimmy had a similar stat line with 8 points, 3 rebounds, and 2 assists. For the Celtics, Jaylen Brown scored a game-high 40 points with 9 rebounds in the losing cause.

With the unavailability of Herro and doubts about Butler, Bam Adebayo and the others have to step up once again. If not, they will make it easier for Jayson Tatum and the Boston Celtics to even the series 2-2. Also, with the Boston crowd behind them, they will be harder to beat. So the Heat can’t give them a sniff to get this if they intend to keep the series lead. But the Celtics have their own injury concerns to deal with.

If Jimmy didn’t play, the Heat will miss not only their best scorer but also one of its best defenders.
