Ira Winderman: Erik Spoelstra on Tyler Herro (neck spasms), "He's making good progress. The last 48 hours have been really good for him. So we just want him to continue to trend in this direction. He's getting better. He's getting close."
Anthony Chiang: Erik Spoelstra said Tyler Herro and Jae Crowder went through a full practice today. Jimmy Butler did not practice today, but he is feeling better. Herro's availability for tomorrow's game will be determined based on how he feels over next 24 hours.
David Furones: Spoelstra did say it was looking optimistic for Herro but no timeline. “And I don’t want him talking about a timeline. He’ll come up with something crazy — like this weekend or something.”
Miami Heat rookie Tyler Herro plans to ditch the walking boot on his right foot next week. “Hopefully by Wednesday and go from there,” Herro said on Friday. “Whenever I’m feeling right I’ll be able to come back out and play. I’m trying to get back and play as soon as possible."
Herro clarified his injury is a foot issue, not right ankle soreness as the team had previously listed. “There’s no more pain at this point,” Herro said. "Just being able to rest it and make sure the problem doesn’t come back up.'
