Miami Heat rookie Tyler Herro has been out of the lineup for quite some time due to injury.
In fact, he hasn’t suited up since he injured his ankle during a win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Feb. 3.
Luckily, Herro’s recent social media activity seems to indicate that the sharpshooting rookie’s return could be coming soon.
Return from foot/ankle considered close. More clarity from team expected at Tuesday practice https://t.co/UfUeFgqsqp

The Heat have certainly missed Herro’s scoring and swagger. In Herro’s absence, the Heat have lost 8 of their last 15 games.
On the season, Herro is averaging 13.1 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game. His primary value has been his ability to serve as a primary scoring option on Miami’s second unit.
Though he’s still just 20 years old, Herro has proven to have the confidence of a savvy veteran.
Hopefully, the University of Kentucky product’s recent post on Twitter is indeed an indication that he will soon be ready to go.
With a heated battle for playoff standings already taking place, Miami would certainly benefit from getting back to full strength to close out the 2019-20 regular season.
