    Herro could have an opportunity to start Wednesday's season opener against Memphis after Dion Waiters was suspended by the Heat on Saturday night.

    Impact

    Waiters will serve a one-game ban for conduct detrimental to the team, and in his absence, Herro is the primary candidate to get the nod at shooting guard. The two players were already thought to be in a close battle for the position, with Herro perhaps even pulling ahead during an impressive preseason. Waiters saw only 10 minutes of action in Friday's exhibition finale, while Herro finished with 14 points in 32 minutes of play.

    Herro will come off the bench during Thursday's preseason game against the Magic.

    Impact

    Herro has impressed so far, and he'll get a chance to work with the second unit Thursday. Across his three preseason appearances, he's averaging 16.3 points on 11.0 shots, 4.7 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.0 steal across 24.7 minutes.

    News

    Herro is off to a hot start in the preseason, but coach Erik Spoelstra said Tuesday that the rookie still has room to improve on defense, the Miami Herald reports. "We're just trying to prepare him as much as we can to be ready to help us win," Spoelstra said. "Whatever role that may be. He still has a long way to go defensively. He knows that, and he's working at it."

    Impact

    Herro had another impressive showing in Monday's win over Atlanta, finishing with 23 points, including five three-pointers, in just 25 minutes of action. He drew the start at shooting guard, and while there's been plenty of speculation that he could hold onto the role during the regular season, it's worth noting that Dion Waiters remained away from the team Monday while tending to a personal issue. Judging from Spoelstra's quotes, Herro could have a real chance to claim the starting two-guard spot, but he'll first need to prove he can hold up defensively.

    Herro exploded for 23 points (9-14 FG, 5-7 3Pt), five rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 25 minutes during Monday's 120-87 win over the Hawks.

    Impact

    Herro drew the start and thrived with the top unit. His ability to space the floor from beyond the arc is helping him make the case that he deserves to start on a team that's otherwise lacking in the three-point shooting department.

    Herro is starting Monday's game against the Hawks, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.
