Tyler Herro returns to action as the Miami Heat continue their homestand tonight with a match-up against the Los Angeles Clippers in a game they’re desperate to win in order to reverse their four-game losing streak.

With both Kawhi Leonard and Paul George out, the Heat will face a similarly shorthanded team who lost against the Atlanta Hawks on the road Tuesday without their two stars.

Though Herro returning is welcome news, the Heat will still be without Jimmy Butler as well as Goran Dragic.



  • Jimmy Butler: out (health and safety protocols)
  • Goran Dragic: out (groin)
  • Maurice Harkless: out (thigh)
  • Meyers Leonard: out (shoulder)
  • Chris Silva: out (hip)


  • Paul George: out (health and safety protocols)
  • Kawhi Leonard: out (health and safety protocols)
  • Patrick Beverly: out (knee)

Tipoff: 8:00 p.m.
