The Miami Heat are currently gearing up for a major Game 4 against the Boston Celtics on Monday night.
Currently, the team has a 2-1 record over the Celtics after winning a big game in Boston.
That means they are just two victories away from going to the NBA Finals again.
They could win another away game on Monday night but if they do it’ll be without one of their most vital role players.
Miami Heat guard Tyler Herro (groin) says the plan is to bounce back and be available for Game 5 on Wednesday.

Tyler Herro has been ruled out of Game 4 on Monday due to a groin injury he suffered in Game 3.
However, it’s not all bad news: Herro says the plan is to “bounce back” and be ready for Game 5 on Wednesday, according to Chris Haynes.
A bounce-back would be incredible for the Heat because Herro has been having one heck of a season and his team misses him.
The Sixth Man
Far too many people assume that the Heat consist of Jimmy Butler and only Jimmy Butler.
The truth is that it’s a very deep team with an accomplished and talented roster, including some fantastic guys coming off the bench, like Herro.
In fact, Herro has been so good that he earned this year’s Sixth Man of the Year Award, a major badge of honor for the young player.
A sharp-shooter and smart player in many aspects of the game, Herro has become downright vital in some games.
He has had some issues lately and has been less consistent than usual but the hope is that he returns feeling better and playing as he did earlier in the year.
That could provide the team with another boost that helps propel them into another Finals appearance.
