As all signs are pointing at his optimistic return to the Miami Heat sometime in the NBA Finals with the Denver Nuggets, Tyler Herro is keeping himself committed on the process of his rehabilitation.
“I’m going to be working out every day, twice, two, three times a day from here until the day I hopefully come back,” said Herro, per Barry Jackson and Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald. “So I’m always going to continue to work hard and see how my body responds day by day and try to come back as soon as possible.”
Following the Heat’s wire-to-wire triumph over the Boston Celtics in Game 7 of the East Finals, TNT’s Chris Haynes reported that Herro is set to further ramp up his activities and could find his way back to the team possibly in Game 3.
He was already seen doing shootaround prior to the said game, which already hinted that his recovery from a broken hand surgery has been going well.
Herro admitted that when Miami was able to came out victorious in an upset over the top-seeded Milwaukee Bucks in last first round, he felt that they got a legitimate shot to be back in the title stage.
This year marks the second time in a four-year span that Herro and the Heat will battle for a championship. They previously represented the East in the 2020 NBA Finals, but came up short against the Los Angeles Lakers.
“After we won in Milwaukee, I had a feeling we would be going back to the Finals,” he said. “It’s been a hell of a ride for sure. Just to be on the sideline, I’ve been on every road trip, I’ve been a part of everything thus far. Just being here with the team has been awesome. Just to see the guys rally around each other; it’s been great. I’m excited to have an opportunity to possibly play again this season.”
