  • Tyler Herro (hand) to remain sidelined for Game 3
    Tyler Herro (fractured right hand) will remain sidelined for Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Wednesday.

    Advice: Reports before the series suggested that Game 3 would be the target date for Herro's return to the court. It will be at least one more game before he suits up for the first time since suffering the injury in Game 1 of the first round. It'll be all hands on deck since it's the Finals, so he likely won't have any minutes restriction when he's finally cleared. However, with how well their role players have played, it's unclear if he'll return to the starting lineup immediately when he is able to play. Still, they haven't had him for their entire playoff run, so his continued absence shouldn't hurt their chances of winning their first title since LeBron James left. Today, 5:07 pm
  • Fischer: Shaedon Sharpe 'off limits' in trade talk
    According to a report from Yahoo's Jake Fischer, teams that are interested in trading for the third pick have been given the impression that Shaedon Sharpe is "off limits" in trade talks.

    Advice: With Damian Lillard making it clear that he doesn't have interest in going through a rebuild, Portland is ready to make a decision. It seems that they want to try and compete, and they want to do it with Sharpe on this roster. He played a limited role for most of his rookie year, but he finished the season out really well. With reports surfacing that the Hornets are leaning towards taking Brandon Miller at two, Portland may be able to get a larger haul for the third pick than they originally expected. Regardless of what they do, it appears that Sharpe will be part of their future. Today, 4:26 pm

    Herro (hand) has been ruled out for Game 3 of the NBA Finals versus Denver on Wednesday, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Advice: There was speculation that Herro could return for either Game 2 or 3, but he's experienced soreness and swelling in his surgically repaired hand that delayed his return timeline. The shooting guard has been fully participating in Miami's recent practices, but it remains to be seen if he'll be cleared for game action at any point in the series. Today, 2:08 pm
  • Spoelstra: Tyler Herro (hand) not cleared yet
    Miami Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra tells reporters Tuesday that Tyler Herro (fractured right hand) has not been cleared yet for a return.

    Advice: The Tyler Herro return for Game 3 storyline may prove to be just a pipe dream as Erik Spoelstra all but killed any notion of the young guard returning for Wednesday's contest. Spoelstra added that the team will put him through a contact workout to see where he's at in his recovery process. The Heat are taking a cautious approach and don't seem to be rushing Herro's return, especially with them having wrestled home-court advantage away from the Nuggets. Today, 1:21 pm
  • Will do full-contact drills Tuesday
    Herro (hand) remains day-to-day and hasn't been cleared for game action yet, but Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra said the shooting guard will go through another full-contact workout Tuesday, Marc J. Spears of reports.

    Advice: Herro has been participating in all portions of Miami's practices recently, but he was still experiencing soreness and swelling in his surgically repaired right hand as of Monday. There's been conflicting reports surrounding his potential availability since the Finals began, but there hasn't been anything definitive saying he's close to being cleared for game action. The Heat will have to release their initial injury report for Game 3 sometime Tuesday afternoon, but Herro's official availability presumably won't be known until a few hours ahead of Wednesday's 8:30 p.m. ET tipoff.

  • Report: Lakers not interested in adding Kyrie
    The Lakers are not interested in adding Kyrie Irving in free agency, per The Athletic's Jovan Buha.

    Advice: On the same day that a report surfaced suggesting that Kyrie had reached out to LeBron James about joining Dallas, the Lakers made it clear that they weren't going to bring Irving to them. If the duo want to reunite to chase a championship, it would likely be in Dallas, though that wouldn't be realistic. LeBron has one more year on his contract, so the Mavs would have to trade for him, and it's unlikely that the Lakers would accept any offer that Dallas can make. Yesterday, 5:42 pm
  • Report: Tyler Herro still experiencing soreness
    Tyler Herro (fractured right hand) is still experiencing soreness and swelling in the right hand according to Ros Gold-Onwude of ESPN.

    Advice: Despite the optimism of Herro returning in any capacity for these NBA Finals, it still seems he may have a ways to go. Ros Gold-Onwude reported Monday that she spoke with Herro prior to Game 2 and he said he can still feel soreness when making a "follow through" shooting motion. The hope was for Herro to return by Game 3 however a more cautious approach seems to be what he and the Heat are taking. Game 3 is on Wednesday. Yesterday, 1:44 pm
  • Shams: Kyrie attempts to recruit LeBron to Dallas
    Kyrie Irving has reached out to LeBron James in an attempt to see if James would come to Dallas, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

    Advice: Just like in his movie, looks like Uncle Drew is trying to get the gang back together for one last hoorah. It's been 6 seasons since Kyrie and LeBron have shared the floor as teammates and their journeys during that span of time have certainly been different. Irving is a free agent this offseason while LeBron is still signed to the Lakers for the 2023-24 season with a player option the following year. LeBron has also vocalized about being unsure if he would come back to play next season as well. This bodes well for Dallas' hopes of re-signing Kyrie as it appears Irving is in it for the long haul if he's trying to recruit players. Time will tell though. Yesterday, 12:05 pm
