Tyler Herro attributes his successful return to the court following a more than a month-long absence due to a hyperextended left knee and medial tendinitis in his right foot to a decision to rest, as reported by Ira Winderman of The Sun-Sentinel.

During his time off, along with receiving a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection, Herro was able to recuperate and prepare for his return to action over the weekend.

Explaining the process, Herro mentioned that the PRP shot provided additional support, aiming to alleviate pressure on the tendon. He emphasized that this treatment, coupled with several weeks of rest post-PRP injection, ultimately facilitated his recovery and enabled his return to the basketball court.

“So the PRP shot was kind of bringing it some extra reinforcement, to kind of hopefully release some pressure on the tendon,” Herro said. “And I was able to do that with some weeks of rest after the PRP shot. And, ultimately, that’s what got me back on the floor.”
