BOSTON — Miami Heat guard Tyler Herro will not play in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals because of a left groin strain. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra made the announcement after Monday’s shootaround and said that Herro would be “day-to-day” moving forward.

“We just had to be responsible and take the decision out of his hands,” Spoelstra said. “He really wants to be out there tonight. The trainers and Dr. [Harlan] Selesnick don’t think that’s the best idea just because of the intensity and everything, but we’ll see. He’s young, we’ll treat him day to day, and we’ll see what happens from here.”

With Herro out of Monday’s game, veteran Victor Oladipo figures to get even more minutes in the short-term. Oladipo played well defensively in Saturday’s 109-103 Game 3 win, scoring five points and collecting four steals in 20 minutes.
