Miami Heat guard Tyler Herro missed his second consecutive game of the Eastern Conference finals against the Boston Celtics due to a strained left groin. The Celtics beat the Heat 93-80 to grab a 3-2 series lead.
Herro suffered the injury in Saturday’s Game 3 victory at TD Garden and then sat out the Heat’s Game 4 loss on Monday night.
The other four players who had been listed as questionable on the Heat’s injury report all were cleared to play: P.J. Tucker (knee), Kyle Lowry (hamstring), Max Strus (hamstring) and Gabe Vincent (hamstring).
The Kia NBA Sixth Man of the Year, Herro averaged 20.7 points, five rebounds and four assists off the bench while shooting 39.9% from 3-point distance during the regular season.
