Nightmare: Tyler Herro

This may be hard to swallow, but Tyler Herro probably has the most onerous contract on the Heat. This has little to do with performance. Herro is having a career year, averaging 20.8 points and shooting over 40% from 3-point range. He has made developments in his game on both ends of the floor. Herro has gotten more active defensively and his shooting and playmaking are as strong as ever. The problem here is just the availability. 

Herro is earning $27 million this season and will make $29 million and $31 million over the two next seasons. This is a 24-year-old player with so much untapped potential, he just needs to find a way to stay on the court.

Herro has only appeared in 36 games so far this season and has been sidelined for the last seven with knee and foot injuries. He is on pace to appear in only half of the Heat's games this season.
