  • Spoelstra: Tyler Herro won't play in Game 1 Thurs.
    Erik Spoelstra said on Wednesday that Tyler Herro (fractured right hand) won't play in Game 1 against Denver on Thursday.

    Advice: Spo also said that "[Herro's] not there yet" as far as returning. Other reports indicated that Herro is targeting a return in Game 3, which would be the first game of the series in Miami. If the Heat want to complete this miraculous run that they're on, they'll need Herro's offense. Today, 3:41 pm
  • Malcolm Brogdon (right arm) considering surgery
    Malcolm Brogdon (right arm injury) said after Monday's loss to the Heat that he will consider undergoing surgery this summer. 

    Advice: While the Celtics continued to list Brogdon's injury as a strained right forearm, he confirmed media reports that he was dealing with a partially torn tendon. The injury, which was suffered during Game 1 of the conference finals, had a significant impact on Brogdon's shooting and ballhandling abilities. The veteran guard played just eight minutes in Game 5 before being held out of Game 6. And in Game 7, Brogdon played seven ineffective minutes. Possible surgery could impact his availability for the start of next season. From a fantasy standpoint, the move to Boston may have improved Brogdon's chances of winning a title, but his value took a hit. The NBA's Sixth Man of the Year finished the regular season just outside the top 100 in 8- and 9-cat formats, which was in line with his Yahoo ADP of 111.7. Yesterday, 5:31 pm
  • Derrick White (left leg) to undergo MRI Tuesday
    Derrick White will undergo an MRI on Tuesday to determine the severity of the left leg injury he suffered during the second half of Monday's Game 7 loss to the Heat. 

    Advice: White was Boston's best player for the first three periods of Monday's season-ending defeat, as Jayson Tatum was hampered by a sprained left ankle and Jaylen Brown struggled with turnovers and poor shooting. Unfortunately for the Celtics, their chances of a late rally were extinguished when White limped back to the locker room after injuring his leg. While it was announced by the team that he was available to return, White did not play another minute. From a fantasy standpoint, the question now is whether or not the issue is bad enough to keep him out for the beginning of next season. Despite a Yahoo ADP of 141.5 in 8-cat, per-game value, White finished the regular season as a 10th-round player (8th-round in 9-cat, per-game value). Yesterday, 5:25 pm
  • Herroic finish? Tyler Herro expected back vs. DEN
    According to Chris Haynes, "Miami Heat guard Tyler Herro (hand fracture) is ramping up workouts and is expected to make his return at some point during NBA Finals with Game 3 being the likely target."

    Advice: Herro injured his hand in Game 1 of the first round against Milwaukee, and he hasn't played since. The extended series against Boston bought Herro a little more time, and he's expected to return during the Finals. His availability will likely impact the playing time of guys like Gabe Vincent, Duncan Robinson, Kyle Lowry and Caleb Martin, who have all stepped up in his absence. Monday, 11:31 pm
  • Nears 20-point outing in Game 7
    White had 18 points (5-12 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 6-7 FT), two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 36 minutes during Monday's 103-84 loss to the Heat in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

    Advice: White finished second on the team in scoring while ending up two points shy of the 20-point mark in Monday's Game 7 loss to Miami. White finished with his second-highest point total of the Eastern Conference Finals, with his 24-point outing in Game 5 being his series-high scoring performance. Monday, 8:45 pm
  • Could return for Game 3
    Herro (hand) is ramping up his basketball activities and is targeting a return for Game 3 of the NBA Finals against the Nuggets, Chris Haynes of Turner Sports reports.

    Advice: The Heat last disclosed that Herro had been cleared for non-contact work May 23, but this latest update provides a clearer timetable for his return. The team will monitor his activity closely over the next week or so and should gain a better idea of when he'll be cleared for game action based on how he responds to workouts of increased intensity. Monday, 8:29 pm
  • Gabe Vincent (ankle) officially active Monday
    Gabe Vincent (ankle) will play in Monday’s Game 7 against the Celtics. 

    Advice: Vincent has been one of Miami’s most reliable options on offense this series, so the team will surely be happy to have him on the court. GV has averaged 17.0 points and 2.8 triples across five appearances in the Eastern Conference Finals. Monday, 8:07 pm
  • Cleared to play in Game 7
    Vincent (ankle) is listed as available to play in Monday's Game 7 against the Celtics.

    Advice: As expected, Vincent has been given the green light to take the court Monday night. He'll presumably start at point guard alongside Max Strus, Jimmy Butler, Caleb Martin and Bam Adebayo. Monday, 4:37 pm
  • Trending in right direction
    Vincent (ankle) is warming up ahead of Monday's Game 7 against Boston and is expected to play despite maintaining a questionable tag, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.

    Advice: Vincent logged 41 minutes in Game 6 after missing Game 5 with a left ankle sprain, and he appears poised to take the floor again Monday evening. He played a big role in Miami's attack from beyond the arc Saturday, draining three of six attempts while finishing with 15 points, four rebounds and one block in the 104-103 loss. Monday, 4:10 pm
