So when the Heat visit the Wells Fargo Center on Monday night to play Joel Embiid, James Harden, and the Philadelphia 76ers, every Heat fan will surely be dying to know: Is Tyler Herro playing tonight vs. the 76ers?

Tyler Herro injury status vs. 76ers

The Heat initially had Herro listed as questionable for Monday’s game due to a rib injury, per a tweet from Underdog Fantasy’s NBA account. The reigning Sixth Man of the Year was upgraded to available before tipoff, though, so he will now be good to go against the Sixers.

In other notable injury news, newly acquired big man Kevin Love (left knee hyperextension) is probable to play for Miami.
