Miami Heat guard Tyler Herro will make his return Wednesday against the Washington Wizards.
Herro missed the previous eight games with an ankle injury. He is the team's second-leading scorer at 19.6 points a game. His return is welcomed because the team announced Jimmy Butler (knee), Duncan Robinson (ankle) and Max Strus (shoulder) will all miss the game. Omer Yurtseven (ankle) and Victor Oladipo (knee) are also out on the injury report.
The Heat enter on a four-game losing streak.
Here is the game preview information:

Heat coach Erik Spoelstra on injuries: “At some point, hopefully we’ll be getting some guys back, Even if they’re not fully 100 percent, even if they’re close enough, maybe they can give us a little bit of reinforcement, even if it’s just short minutes. That’s where we are right now.”
