“You have to go through several stages” Tyler Hiro, missed the 4th game

Expected to return from the finals, but is still ‘away’. Tyler Hiro (Miami) will also miss Game 4.

Local media, including ‘ESPN’, reported on the 9th (Korean time) about Hiro’s recovery and whether he would participate in Game 4 of the 2023 NBA Finals.

To start with the conclusion, Game 4, which will be held on the 10th, will also be missed. Hiro fractured his right hand in Game 1 of the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs against the Milwaukee Bucks. He has had a hiatus ever since.

Miami broke away from the front line from Hiro to Victor Oladipo, but Jimmy Butler’s ability as a solver and a shower 3-point shot took the lead to produce a surprise in the finals. Miami made a total of 277 3-pointers in the playoffs this season, ranking second behind the Boston Celtics (281). The success rate (38.8%) ranks first.

However, the wall of the Denver Nuggets with Nikola Jokic at the fore is high. Miami returned the series to the starting point by winning the second game, but lost the third game and handed over the lead in the series again.

Hiro’s support shot is needed, but unlike the original prediction that “it will be possible to return in the finals”, he will be away until the 4th game. Miami manager Eric Spoelstra said of Hiro, “It takes a lot of steps to come back. Shooting, movement, meetings with coaches, and practice should be sufficient. He can’t play yet.”

Although the return is delayed more than expected, Butler hoped to finish the finals with Hiro. “Hiro shared the huge achievements our team made in one season,” Butler said. His mental power is very strong. He is doing everything in his power to come back to help the team. If he finishes all preparations, he will come back stronger.”

Miami is the second team ever to reach the Finals as the No. 8 seed. In 1999, the New York Knicks created the first miracle in history, but handed the championship over to the San Antonio Spurs. Miami is also showing their fighting spirit, but time is not on their side. After playing the Eastern Finals against the Boston Celtics through Game 7, the burden of physical strength is increasing. Snake Adebayo (shoulder) and Gabe Vincent (ankle) are also running with pain.안전놀이터

Hiro averaged 20.1 points, 3 3-pointers, 5.4 rebounds and 4.2 assists in 34 minutes and 9 seconds in 67 games this season. Although his score was somewhat lower than last season (20.7 points), all of the records listed, including playing time, were career highs. He put up a 3-point shot as a weapon, but it is a power that can be a very big power for Miami, which is adding to its stamina. Can Hiro, whose absence from Game 4 be confirmed, step on the court in Game 5?
