Miami Heat guard Tyler Herro has been ruled out of Monday night’s Game 4 against the Boston Celtics with a groin injury.

Jimmy Butler (knee), Kyle Lowry (hamstring), Max Strus (hamstring), Gabe Vincent (hamstring) and P.J. Tucker (knee) will all warm up with the intent to play, the team said. All are officially listed as questionable.

The Heat lead the best-of-seven Eastern Conference finals 2-1.

Herro, 22, left Saturday’s Game 3 with 8:11 remaining in the fourth quarter and didn’t return. Herro scored eight points with three assists in 20 minutes. The Heat won the game, 109-103.

Herro is averaging 13.5 points and 4.1 rebounds per game in 14 postseason games.

Butler started Game 3 but was held out of the second half after his knee became inflamed. Butler had eight points, three rebounds, two assists and two steals in 20 minutes.
