Miami Heat guard Tyler Herro entered the league’s health and safety protocols on Sunday amid COVID-19 concerns.

Herro, 21, is listed as questionable for Monday’s game against the Charlotte Hornets. He is averaging 17.5 points, 6.8 rebounds and 3.8 assists this season.

The Heat already have dealt with COVID-19 issues this season. Star forward Jimmy Butler recently returned after missing 10 games due to protocols.

Herro reportedly learned at halftime of Saturday’s game against the Sacramento Kings that his roommate had tested positive for the coronavirus.
