The Miami Heat continue to make their case in the Eastern Conference, and now they could be getting a big boost from the return of their rookie phenom.

Heat guard Tyler Herro, who has been out for more than a month with an ankle issue, hinted at an imminent return in a tweet that he posted on Monday.

Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald said in reaction to Herro’s tweet that a return is considered to be “close."

Herro. 20, is averaging 13.1 points and 4.0 rebounds per game on 39.3 percent shooting from three this year. He last played on Feb. 2 against Philadelphia, and the Heat have gone just 7-8 in his absence.

Herro is a strong off-the-dribble scorer and floor-spreader, which the Heat offense badly needs right now. His knack for highlights is a plus too.
