According to a report, Miami Heat's Tyler Herro is targeting a return for Game 3 of the NBA Finals, providing critical help to his team in their upcoming battle against the Denver Nuggets.

Herro, who has been sidelined since breaking his hand in Game 1 of Miami's upset victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on April 16, is expected to make his comeback in Miami.

The Heat, as the second No. 8 seed to reach the NBA Finals, have already made history with their impressive playoff run, eliminating the Bucks, the Knicks, and the Celtics along the way.

Despite speculation before Game 7, Herro had previously stated that he would not be able to play.

However, his return for Game 3 could be a significant boost for the Heat, considering his contributions as the Sixth Man of the Year in 2022.

During the regular season, Herro showcased his skills by averaging 20.1 points, 5.4 rebounds, and 4.2 assists per game, with an outstanding league-leading free-throw percentage of .934.

With the potential return of Herro, the Heat are hoping to strengthen their chances in the NBA Finals, further solidifying their status as a team capable of defying expectations and making a memorable run.
