Herro scored 21 points (8-18 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-4 FT) while adding seven rebounds, three assists and a steal in 37 minutes during Tuesday's 102-96 loss against the Lakers in Game 4 of the 2020 NBA Finals. Herro has averaged 18.3 points in his last three games, all of them as a starter, but he hasn't been as efficient as he had been off the bench -- he is only shooting 39.6 percent from the field and 35.3 percent from three-point range in that three-game stretch. Small-sample size applies here, and Herro should remain a reliable scoring threat for the Heat in Game 5, but his lack of accuracy from the field might impact his value in DFS formats.
Herro will enter the starting lineup in Friday's Game 2 against the Lakers, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. With Goran Dragic (foot) sidelined, Herro figures to see even more usage than usual. Both he and Jimmy Butler will presumably take on ball-handling duties in the starting unit. Herro has enjoyed an impressive run throughout the playoffs and will look to carry that momentum into Game 2 with the Heat shorthanded.
Herro contributed 14 points (6-18 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 0-1 FT), four rebounds and three assists across 30 minutes Wednesday in the Heat's 116-98 loss to the Lakers in Game 1 of the NBA Finals. Herro struggled to find his rhythm in the loss, knocking down just one-third of his shot attempts on the night. With Goran Dragic (foot) exiting with an injury in the contest, Herro could find himself in a more prominent role Friday in Game 2 that would likely entail more ball-handling responsibilities.
Herro totaled 19 points (8-13 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven assists and five rebounds in 35 minutes during Sunday's 125-113 victory over Boston. If there is a player who has done more to boost his fantasy value over the past month, then they obviously haven't met Mr. Herro. The rookie continues to produce at an elite level, dropping 19 points on ultra-efficient shooting, sending the Heat to their first NBA Finals since 2014. Looking ahead to next season, it remains unclear whether he will fill the role of a starter or remain coming off the bench. Either way, he is likely to be playing starter's minutes, and with his confidence a non-factor, he could be on the verge of a breakout campaign.
Herro delivered 37 points (14-21 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six rebounds and three assists in 36 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's Game 4 win over the Celtics. Herro was coming off a 22-point performance during Miami's Game 3 loss, but he took it even further this time around, delivering a career-best performance right when the Heat needed him the most. The rookie has scored in double digits in every one of Miami's playoff games, averaging 16.5 points in all. He's not going to surpass the 30-point plateau often, but Herro has settled in as a reliable scoring threat who gets heavy minutes off the bench.
