The Heat move quickly on their injuries.
Tyler Herro hasn’t even missed Game 4 yet tonight, but he’s already stating a credible-sounding intent to return in Game 5 Wednesday.
#MIAvsBOS INJURY UPDATE: Tyler Herro (groin) has been ruled out of tonight’s Game 4 vs the Celtics.
Jimmy Butler (knee), Kyle Lowry (hamstring), Max Strus (hamstring), Gabe Vincent (hamstring) & P.J. Tucker (knee) will all warm up with the intent to play.

Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports:
Miami Heat guard Tyler Herro (groin) says the plan is to bounce back and be available for Game 5 on Wednesday.

Herro’s offensive creation has been vital to Miami at times this season. But not so much in this series.
Jimmy Butler is scoring at an incredibly high level. Bam Adebayo got far more aggressive in the last game. Kyle Lowry has returned from injury and gotten the Heat to play faster, avoiding the halfcourt possessions where Herro is more crucial.
Miami has outscored Boston without Herro on the floor in each game of this series.
Would it be nice to have the Sixth Man of the Year available? Of course. He provides more margin for error.
