NBA Finals Game 2: Tyler Herro improving. 

DELTA - Tyler Herro, a 23-year-old guard for the Miami Heat, 

has been recuperating for six weeks after undergoing "open reduction and internal ,

fixation surgery of the third and fourth metacarpal of his right hand," 

yet the team has decided to exclude him from Game 2 of the NBA Finals on Sunday (8 ET, ABC). 

Herro was listed as "out" by the Heat on their most recent injury report before the game. 

Erik Spoelstra, the Miami coach, stated that "he is improving."  

"The progress is quite encouraging to us. When we arrived in Denver, 

he immediately began performing contact work. We must keep things in perspective.
