Tyler Herro fractured his hand just before halftime in Game 1 against the Milwaukee Bucks, and after his ensuing surgery, the target timeline was that he could be back for the NBA Finals. This led to many “good luck with that” comments on social media (not to mention comments about his sideline fits).

The No. 8 seed Miami Heat is in the NBA Finals, and Herro is hoping to get back on the court when Miami returns home for Game 3, Bleacher Report and TNT’s Chris Haynes reports.

Maybe he’s coming back, maybe that’s optimistic (Game 3 is Wednesday, June 7). Herro still feels pain in his right hand, he told reporters after the game.

Herro averaged 20.1 points, 5.4 rebounds and 4.2 assists per game for the Heat this season, shooting 37.8 percent from 3. He was the team’s second-highest shot creator after Jimmy Butler , a guy we were counting on to boost the attack on points.

If he returns, Erik Spoelstra must bring him back to the sixth man role where he thrived a season ago. The starting lineup without him was better defensively, and with the emergence of Caleb Martin and Gabe Vincent, the Heat don’t need the offensive spark with this first group (minus Herro meant more Jimmy Butler with the ball , And it’s a good thing ). The second unit could use the offensive spark brought by Herro.

It’s something to watch as the Heat return to the NBA Finals for the first time since the bubble, this time against the fearsome Denver Nuggets.
