Big man Robert Williams III (left hip pain) and guard Marcus Smart, (right ankle sprain), are available for the Celtics to play in Boston’s closing series. They will then face off against the Golden State Warriors in a NBA Finals matchup.
Heat coach Eric Spoelstra said after the team’s firing on Friday that Herro was “doing everything he could” to persuade Miami’s coaches and training staff to give him a chance to play, but to keep him out. The decision was made.
“These are not easy conversations or decisions,” Spoelstra said. “He’s definitely made progress, but he’s not quite ready, you know, to step into this kind of intensity of a game.”
Herro initially injured his groin during a Game 3 victory by Miami on Saturday. He then missed Games 4 & 5, and lost both heats. Spoelstra refused to discuss the extent of the injury.
“I think it’s irrelevant to go into all the details,” Spoelstra said. “He’s not able to play tonight. As badly as he wants to get out, it’s the most responsible decision we have made.”
Hero averages 12.3 in the three matches.
What is the 6th game?
The team announced that Miami Heat Guard Tyler Herrow was out of Game 6 against the Boston Celtics because of a left groin strain.
“He’s definitely made progress, but he’s not quite ready,” Heat coach Eric Spoelstra said ahead of Friday’s match.
Hero was injured in the fourth game of Game 3 and Kia Sixth Man-of-the Year has been unable to play since.
Miami has struggled aggressively in his absence, averaging 81 points in the last two games – both Boston won. In Game 5, Miami shot 33.3% from the floor.
In 14 playoff games, the Hero averages 13.5 points per game and 4.1 rebounds.
The Heat were without Tyler Herro during the Eastern Conference Finals.
After playing in games 1–3 of the series, the sixth man of the year was sidelined for Game 4 due to a groin injury. Hero stated that Hero was hoping to bounce back in time to be available for Game 5 but was ultimately unable.
Friday’s Game 6 will see the Heat looking to extend their season. The Celtics will host them. Are you ready to play hero?
