MIAMI – It’s once again Tyler time.

The Miami Heat announced on Tuesday that guard Tyler Herro has been cleared from the health and safety protocols.

He will be available to the Heat when they host the New York Knicks on Wednesday.

The Heat entered Tuesday with a 30-17 record, the top seed in the Eastern Conference.

Head Coach Erik Spoelstra said that Herro is feeling fine and is ready to come back.

Herro has been a key part of the Heat’s success this season.

He’s averaging 20.7 points per game in 32.9 minutes per game.

Herro comes off the bench and will likely be in consideration for the NBA’s 6th man award.
