2020 Fantasy Outlook
Herro is heading into his sophomore NBA season with considerable momentum after a rookie campaign in which he averaged 13.5 points, 2.1 threes and 4.1 rebounds despite making only eight starts. Adding to the hype, he elevated his play when the postseason rolled around, averaging 16.0 points during the Heat's run to the NBA Finals. Whether he opens games on the court or not, it's clear that the Heat will give Herro all the playing time he can handle. The Kentucky product is a natural scorer who's sharp from both three-point range (38.9 percent) and the free-throw line (87.0 percent), which should have fantasy managers salivating at the prospect of increased opportunity. His fantasy value is capped to some degree by his relative lack of secondary stats outside the shooting categories, but at just 20 years old, Herro has plenty of room to grow his game. Expect a scoring spike driven by plenty of threes, with some boards and steals as a bonus. Read Past Outlooks

College/International Summary

The 2018-19 Kentucky Wildcats were a deep and talented team, but Herro was the only player who started all 37 games for the team. Coach John Calipari mixed his starting lineup and had to deal with some injuries, but Herro was a consistent scoring presence. He was second on the team with 14.0 points while also adding 4.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game. The 6-foot-5 guard hit 35.5 percent of his three-pointers. Herro scored at least 20 points six times, including a season-high 29 points in a comeback win over Arkansas. He had his lone double-double game with 15 points and 13 rebounds in a win over Tennessee. The guard helped the Wildcats get to the Elite Eight. He knocked down 19 points in a win over Houston and was named to the All-Midwest Region team to go along with SEC All-Freshman and All-SEC Second Teams. After his freshman season, Herro declared for the 2019 NBA Draft. He was chosen by the Miami Heat with the 13th overall pick.

Out through Monday
GMiami Heat
Neck
January 22, 2021
Herro (neck) has been sent home and will be out Friday against the Raptors, plus Saturday and Monday against the Nets, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
ANALYSIS
Neck spasms continue to keep Herro out, and he's apparently in so much discomfort that the team has opted to just send him home for the remainder of the road trip. In his absence, Kendrick Nunn figures to continue seeing extra run.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
Herro was selected No. 13 overall in the 2019 draft after an impressive freshman season with Kentucky. He snuck into the lottery behind a strong NCAA Tournament, and he could land the starting job at shooting guard as a rookie with Miami. Herro flashed at the Las Vegas Summer League with his all-around play, averaging 19.8 points, 4.5 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 1.5 steals in four appearances. The lanky two-guard can be impactful on both ends of the court, with his solid defense and ability to get to the rim and shoot the three-ball at a respectable clip (35.5 percent last season) on offense. The pure scorer should have no problem securing a healthy allotment of minutes in a rotation that could use help scoring outside of Jimmy Butler. He won't face much competition for playing time from the current members of the Heat backcourt outside of Dion Waiters.
