Breaking News: Insider Confirmed Miami Heat ‘Leading Man’ Tyler Herro finally Accept Bench Role….

The Miami Heat are one step closer to getting star scorer Tyler Herro back into the rotation—quite literally.

Herro is no longer in a walking boot, as the Heat confirmed this week. It is still not clear when he will return to the team from his Grade 2 ankle sprain, but the original prognosis was that he would miss two weeks, which means he’d be slated to get back on the floor by Friday’s game in New York against the Knicks.

That’s looking like a longshot, as is the Saturday game in Brooklyn against the Nets. It’s likely the team will wait until next Tuesday, when the Miami Heat plays at home against Milwaukee, to get Herro back in the lineup

If that is the case, though, there is the question of where Herro will fit into a rotation that has again excelled without him. The question of whether Herro could go back to being a Sixth Man was put to longtime Heat insider Ira Winderman of the Sun-Sentinel, who had a flat answer.

Highly doubt it,” Winderman wrote in his mailbag.

Tyler Herro Wants to Be an All-Star

The reasons that Tyler Herro would not want to come off the bench for the Miami Heat are understandable, yet a bit concerning. Herro spent all summer embroiled in trade chatter and was deemed highly likely to be sent elsewhere before this season.

Since the start of the season, the Heat seem to have gone out of their way to make it clear that Tyler Herro is a wanted man in Miami. And he wants a chance to shine, Winderman wrote.
