Herro will come off the bench during Thursday's preseason game against the Magic.
Herro has impressed so far, and he'll get a chance to work with the second unit Thursday. Across his three preseason appearances, he's averaging 16.3 points on 11.0 shots, 4.7 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.0 steal across 24.7 minutes.
Herro is off to a hot start in the preseason, but coach Erik Spoelstra said Tuesday that the rookie still has room to improve on defense, the Miami Herald reports. "We're just trying to prepare him as much as we can to be ready to help us win," Spoelstra said. "Whatever role that may be. He still has a long way to go defensively. He knows that, and he's working at it."
Herro had another impressive showing in Monday's win over Atlanta, finishing with 23 points, including five three-pointers, in just 25 minutes of action. He drew the start at shooting guard, and while there's been plenty of speculation that he could hold onto the role during the regular season, it's worth noting that Dion Waiters remained away from the team Monday while tending to a personal issue. Judging from Spoelstra's quotes, Herro could have a real chance to claim the starting two-guard spot, but he'll first need to prove he can hold up defensively.
Herro exploded for 23 points (9-14 FG, 5-7 3Pt), five rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 25 minutes during Monday's 120-87 win over the Hawks.
Herro drew the start and thrived with the top unit. His ability to space the floor from beyond the arc is helping him make the case that he deserves to start on a team that's otherwise lacking in the three-point shooting department.
Herro is starting Monday's game against the Hawks, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.
Herro has looked sharp throughout the preseason, averaging 13 points, 4.5 rebounds and three assists over two contests. He'll start alongside Justise Winslow, Jimmy Butler, Meyers Leonard and Bam Adebayo.
Herro will get the start for Wednesday's game against the Hornets.
Herro will start in place of Jimmy Butler for Wednesday's tilt against Charlotte. The rookie had a successful debut, scoring 18 points, grabbing three rebounds and dishing out three assists in 24 minutes against the Spurs on Tuesday.
Herro posted a game-high 18 points (7-13 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT) to go with three rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 24 minutes off the bench Tuesday in the Heat's 107-89 preseason win over the Spurs.
Just as the Heat had hoped when they drafted him in the first round back in June, Herro demonstrated some sharp shooting both from distance and the free-throw line in Miami's preseason opener. The rookie will likely open the regular season in a second-unit role, offering depth on the wing behind offseason pickup Jimmy Butler while fighting Dion Waiters, Duncan Robinson and Derrick Jones for playing time.
Herro will rest for Saturday's contest against the Pelicans, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
The Heat will preserve their first-round pick's health by holding him out of Saturday's action. We may have seen the last of Herro in summer league, as the playoff format is single elimination.
Herro netted 15 points (6-14 FG, 3-7 3Pt), three assists, two rebounds and one steal across 31 minutes during the Heat's 90-87 loss to the Timberwolves in a Las Vegas Summer League game Wednesday.
Herro was outdone by fellow summer league star Kendrick Nunn on Wednesday, but his outing was solid in its own right. The 2019 first-round pick is now averaging 19.8 points, 4.5 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 1.5 steals across 29.5 minutes over four Las Vegas games, as he continues to make a case for a potential starting job at two-guard from Day 1 of his pro career.
Herro finished with 25 points (7-15 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 9-10 FT), seven rebounds, five assists and a steal across 33 minutes in the Heat's 96-92 win over the Magic in the Las Vegas Summer League on Tuesday.
Herro blitzed the Magic to the tune of a game-high 25 points in Tuesday's win. He's now averaged 21.3 points , 5.3 rebounds and 4.7 assists in his last three games and looks every bit the part of a lottery pick. Although his efficiency shooting the ball hasn't been ideal, Herro has gotten to the line 20 times combined in those three contests, sinking 19 from the charity stripe.
Herro registered 16 points (7-18 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven rebounds, five assists and a steal across 30 minutes in Sunday's 93-81 win over Utah in the Las Vegas Summer League.
Herro is starting to look more and more like a lock for the Heat's second unit come October. The 6-5 Kentucky product looks ready for the speed of the NBA, and although the newly-acquired Jimmy Butler will likely start and swing between the two and three spots, Butler and Herro on the floor together could be an exciting combo for Miami.
Herro compiled 23 points (5-13 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 9-9 FT), four assists, two rebounds and three steals across 24 minutes during the Heat's 103-62 win over Team China in a Las Vegas Summer League game on Friday.
The 2019 first-round pick got his stint in Vegas off to a strong start against an overwhelmed Chinese squad, pacing the Heat in scoring in the process. So far, so good for Herro in his nascent professional career, as the former Kentucky Wildcat also collected 20 points against the Warriors in a California Classic League matchup Wednesday afternoon. The promising wing's next opportunity to make an impression comes Sunday evening in a matchup against the Utah Jazz.
Herro will not play in Tuesday's summer league game against the Kings, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports
With the Heat playing again early Wednesday, Herro will get Tuesday night off for rest.
Herro will play for the Heat's summer league team, Sam Amico of AmicoHoops.net reports.
As expected, the 13th overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft will headline the Heat's summer league squad. Last year at Kentucky, he averaged 14.0 points per game while shooting 35.5 percent from distance.
Herro was selected by the Heat with the 13th overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft.
Herro burst on the scene during his lone year at Kentucky, emerging as one of the best freshman guards in the country thanks to his knock-down shooting ability. He averaged 14.0 points per game while shooting 35.5 percent from behind the arc and 93.5 percent from the free throw line, a school record. It's unclear where Herro fits on the Miami roster heading into his rookie season, as the team has a ton of money locked into both Dion Waiters and Josh Richardson at the shooting guard position. However, with both those guys having a history with injuries, Herro could find his way into the rotation should either be unfit to play at any point next season.
