Miami Heat injury report featuring Tyler Herro vs. Pelicans.

The Miami Heat are back in action on Friday night against the New Orleans Pelicans following the NBA All-Star break. The Heat are on a two-game winning streak and have won six of their last 10 games, but Tyler Herro is listed as questionable due to an injury.

According to the Heat's latest injury report, Herro is dealing with discomfort in his right foot. It's a new injury for the 24-year-old guard, who has not missed a game since Feb.4 against the LA Clippers due to migraine.

There are four other players on the Heats' injury report – Josh Richardson, Terry Rozier, Duncan Robinson and Dru Smith. Richardson, Rozier and Smith are listed as out, while Robinson is available and is expected to suit up to face the Pelicans.

What happened to Tyler Herro?

Tyler Herro has only played in 35 of 55 games for the Miami Heat before the All-Star break. Herro missed a lot of games in November due to an ankle injury. He returned in mid-December and has only missed two games since then because of a shoulder issue and migraine.

It's unclear when Herro started feeling discomfort in his right foot. He posted a facepalm emoji on Thursday, but it might not be related to his injury. He's averaging 21.0 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.4 assists per game this season.
