Tyler Herro was playing extremely good basketball before spraining his ankle on November 8th against the Memphis Grizzlies. However, that isn’t stopping Herro from getting healthy so he can continue his hot start to the season.

Herro was a dominant force for the Miami Heat prior to his injury. So much so he believes that he was on pace to make an All-NBA team before he got hurt.

“We were playing at an All-NBA level. First team, Second team, Third team. We were gonna make an all-NBA team this year.”

Tyler Herro said in his latest YouTube video

Herro was making a very good case to at least remain in discussions for an All-NBA roster spot. The explosive guard was averaging 22.9 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 4.6 assists while shooting an impressive 50.6% from the field and 43.8% from long range.

Herro made it clear going into this season that he wanted to prove any doubters of his wrong. After hearing his name floated around all offseason, primarily in a failed package for Damian Lillard, Herro came into this season like a man on a mission.

The Heat are coming off of a magical NBA Finals run last year. The Eastern Conference is still very good, if not better than what it was last year. If the Heat are going to shock the world and win a championship, Herro will have to be an important part of that push.

Herro should be returning to the Heat’s lineup in the coming weeks. The team is sitting with an 8-5 record and will only look to get better with Herro back in their rotation. Herro will look to get back to the level he was at pre-injury, which could be a scary moment for the league.
