It could get worse before it gets better for the Heat after Tyler Herro's injury

Tyler Herro will miss at least two weeks with a sprained right ankle. What does this mean for the Miami Heat and Herro's season?

At this rate, do you think Herro could have made the All-Star team?

Max: He was going to be in the mix this year. But, no. With the media biased toward Miami and the number of strays Herro got this past offseason, I don’t think the media would have lobbied for him to get into the All-Star game. 

Stephanie: Tyler has taken major leaps toward All-Star status. He’s averaging 25.8 points, 5.7 assists, 5 assists, and 1.2 steals. Not to mention, he has led the team in scoring in five consecutive games this season. While I believe there’s still work to be done, Herro has more than proven how much he’s improved and wants to be a cornerstone for Miami. His talent, tenacity, and versatility will land him a spot soon enough.

António: He’s been playing like one, that’s for sure. The problem is, he’s still the third player in the Heat’s hierarchy (even if he’s been the first offensively to start the season) and would need a great collective regular season to get there. The opposition is strong as well, with guys like Jalen Brunson or Trae Young not even making the All-Star game last season, so it should be early for him, but the signs are intriguing.
