    Tyler Herro notched a career-high 10 assists to go along with 25 points and eight boards in the Heat's 119-112 loss to the Suns on Saturday.

    Herro nearly put up a triple-double on Saturday and saw almost 36 minutes, continuing the upward trend in terms of his usage in the bubble. He went 10-for-16 from the floor and what is particularly notable is that he only knocked down one shot from downtown, which is his usual specialty. Herro is really developing into a nice piece for the Heat and the coaching staff already trusts him in clutch situations.

    Tyler Herro will replace Goran Dragic (left ankle sprain) in the starting lineup for Saturday's matchup with the Suns.

    Herro finds himself in a great situation with both Dragic and Kendrick Nunn (personal) out. After going for 20 points in his most recent performance, he will look to continue his momentum in what could be a favorable matchup against a fast-paced Suns outfit.

    Goran Dragic (left ankle sprain) will not play on Saturday when the Heat take on the Suns, according to Erik Spoelstra.

    Dragic was a late scratch on Saturday and with Kendrick Nunn (personal) also out, Tyler Herro figures to see an uptick in his playing time. Herro popped for 20 points in 33 minutes against the Bucks on Thursday and makes sense as a short-term pickup.

  • Kendrick Nunn
    PG, Miami Heat

    Kendrick Nunn (personal) will miss Saturday's matchup with the Suns.

    With Jimmy Butler also missing this contest the Heat could be pretty thin in the guard category. Nunn has left the bubble so he could be seeing an extended absence, although he has not personally been affected by COVID-19. Goran Dragic (ankle) is questionable, and with all of these issues Tyler Herro is going to have a big night in DFS land. Duncan Robinson is also going to receive plenty of run.

    Goran Dragić (left ankle sprain) took some shots on Thursday and told the media that he is not sure if he will be available for Saturday's contest vs. the Suns.

    As expected, Tyler Herro and Kendrick Nunn were the main beneficiaries in Thursday's contest with Dragić sidelined. Continue to monitor the wire for an update. If he is sidelined, look for Herro and Nunn to continue to provide additional value. Herro has produced standard league value throughout the four games while Nunn had his first standard league worthy game on Thursday.

    Kendrick Nunn took 17 shot attempts in 29 minutes and made just five to get to his 14 points and four triples as the Heat lost the plot in the second half on Thursday against the Bucks.

    Nunn was outperformed handily by Tyler Herro, who scored 20 points on 6-of-12 shooting and at least contributed four rebounds and five assists in 33 minutes. Both Nunn and Herro are daily play options, albeit not necessarily reliable ones.

    Tyler Herro drained three 3s on Tuesday against the Celtics, finishing with a stat line of 11 points (4-of-10 FG, 3-of-7 FG), three rebounds and three assists in 22 minutes.

    This is the type of evening the Heat need from the youngster. Herro seems to complement Duncan Robinson and the rest of the Heat's lethal shooters, fitting in nicely with the well-balanced roster. He should only gain fantasy relevance as his career presses on.

    Tyler Herro attempted only seven shots on Saturday, ending with seven points, five rebounds and two assists in 20 minutes.

    Herro was uncharacteristically bashful on the offensive end during Saturday's blowout victory. The rookie is certainly not one to shy away from a shot, making this performance a little intriguing. Even when Herro is firing away, his fantasy production is typically reliant on how well he is shooting the ball. His supporting numbers are usually not enough to bolster his overall value and he serves as more of a spot-start guy in most competitive formats.

    Tyler Herro finished with just eight points on 3-of-13 shooting, adding five rebounds and four assists in Tuesday's 128-110 loss to the Grizzles.

    After a strong offensive game on Saturday, Herro cooled off against the Grizzlies, shooting just 23.1 percent from the field. The rookie's game is almost completely reliant on his ability to score the basketball and inconsistent production such as this is certainly not something new. When the Heat are at full strength, Herro's role is flexible at best making him a late-round flier type in most drafts.

    Tyler Herro finished Saturday's scrimmage with 20 points, seven rebounds, four assists, a steal and a 3-pointer in 30 minutes of action.

    Jimmy Butler got the day off and Herro stepped up to the plate, tying for the team lead with 16 shots on the day. The young sharpshooter generated plenty of hype in his first year but ultimately didn't show enough outside of scoring and threes to make him a certified fantasy asset. The volume is going to be lacking, so don't go expecting Herro to make a big impact in fantasy just yet, but he could be a fine late-round flier type in resumption leagues.

    Tyler Herro shot 5-of-14 from the field and 0-of-7 from three on his way to scoring 15 points with six rebounds and four turnovers in 26 minutes on Wednesday.

    Herro's efficiency was terrible but it's only the first scrimmage. Kendrick Nunn sat out of the scrimmage and Goran Dragic only played the first half which gave Herro the extended minutes. Herro will be part of the Heat rotation once the season resumes and may be able to take some minutes from Kendrick Nunn. Herro is shooting 39.1 percent from three this season and could be leaned on more heavily by the Heat if they need to space the floor in late-game situations.

    Despite a late-season injury, Tyler Herro managed top-190 value in 8-category leagues as a rookie.

    While Herro started just six games, he averaged 27.2 minutes per contest. The rookie out of Kentucky scored 12.9 points per game to go with 4.0 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 0.6 steals. An ankle injury limited him to 47 appearances and his fantasy contributions are mostly limited to scoring. However, 39.1 percent shooting behind the arc means that Herro could give Kendrick Nunn a run for his minutes when the NBA resumes play.

    Tyler Herro said the time off allowed his right ankle to fully recover.

    Herro returned to action just before the shutdown due to COVID-19. With the ankle back to 100 percent, he will face no restrictions when play picks back up in Orlando. While Herro's scoring prowess caused some increased expectations for his rookie season, he's largely been an afterthought for the Heat. He can clearly shoot the rock (2.1 treys on .391 shooting), but the rest of his game is lacking, and the Heat do not have time to devote to rookie development when the season resumes.

    Kendrick Nunn (illness) will play in Wednesday's game against the Hornets.

    Nunn should see a slight uptick in minutes on Wednesday with Jimmy Butler (toe) ruled out. However, it is worth noting that Tyler Herro (ankle) is returning for Wednesday's game so the crowded backcourt gets a little bit more crowded. Nunn could see his value decrease over the coming weeks when the Heat get back to full strength.

    Tyler Herro (sore right ankle) will make his return on Wednesday as the Heat take on the Hornets.

    Herro will return to action on Wednesday after missing the previous 15 games with this ankle injury. He is clearly a part of the Heat’s rotation moving forward but hasn’t produced standard league value with all of the mouths to feed in Miami. He will likely be eased back into the rotation for the first few games so he is not worth playing immediately. When he is fully ramped up, he’s worth a look in 16-team leagues.
