“I’m sure we’re close enough,” Walton said. “But it’s kind of up to (Barnes) and the training staff. We game-plan for the guys that are going to be available. “Whenever Harrison’s ready to play . . . he’s done more in practice, which is great to see. But we’re kind of out of that process as far as when that game is. When they tell us he’s ready to go, then we’ll get him back in there.”

In a recent episode of the “Inside the Paint” podcast, hosts Ethan Skolnick and Ira Winderman revealed that the Heat have been concerned about Herro’s growing celebrity status as of late. “Tyler Herro chose to become a celebrity,” Winderman said. “He chose to become something outside the game, as is his right. With his breakfast cereal, and his Tyler Tuesdays, and his Chipotle Bowl and that’s all well and good. But you know what? Other players when they see a player doing that before they’ve truly reached it. I don’t want to say there’s a jealousy. … They sort of take a scant view of the guy and say, ‘Wait a minute buddy. You haven’t done anything yet.’”
Skolnick then dropped the bomb that the Heat organization has been concerned about Herro for quite some time. “Ultimately, the team starts to get a certain level of concern,” he said. “In this particular case, the team has been concerned now for months.”
