The third-year man, who leads the NBA in bench scoring with a 20.0 point per game average, had missed the two games prior to the game against Brooklyn with knee soreness. He scored 15 points on 4-11 shooting from the field and 7-7 from the charity stripe in 23 minutes during Saturday’s win and only managed 2:56 minutes in the fourth quarter. Herro leads Miami in fourth-quarter minutes this season with 9.6 per game.

An MRI on his knee revealed a contusion and no structural damage.

Meanwhile, Miami could be without their All-Star Jimmy Butler, who has been ruled as questionable due to a right shoulder strain. Caleb Martin has also been listed as questionable with left Achilles soreness while Markieff Morris and Victor Oladipo remain out.
