Report: Tyler Herro and Kelly Olynyk Questionable Tuesday vs. Detroit Pistons

1 Min Read

The Miami Heat may be shorthanded against the Detroit Pistons on Tuesday night.

The team announced guard Tyler Herro and big man Kelly Olynyk are questionable for tomorrow’s contest versus the Pistons.

Herro, 19, was the No. 13 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft. While fans weren’t ecstatic when the Heat first selected the youngster, the 6-foot-5 guard quickly changed expectations when he shined during Miami’s Summer League games.

While the sample size is small, Herro is sizing up to be one of the best rookies in his class. The University of Kentucky product is putting up 13.1 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game this season.

Olynyk, on the other hand, is having one of the worst seasons of his career. In fact, the 28-year-old is posting a career-low 7.0 points per contest this season. The big man is in his fourth season with the Heat.

While the Heat are getting ravaged by injuries, the Pistons will get back All-Star Blake Griffin on Monday night against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
