Miami Heat reserve guard Tyler Herro is listed as questionable for Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals after missing the past two games with a left groin strain.

The Heat lost both games without Herro, who is the NBA Sixth Man of the Year this season. Miami averaged 81 points in the two setbacks to see the Boston Celtics take a 3-2 lead in the series.

Herro is averaging 13.5 points and shooting just 23.2 percent from 3-point range in 14 games this postseason. In the regular season, he averaged 20.7 points and shot 39.9 percent from behind the arc.

Also notable is that Miami star Jimmy Butler is no longer listed on the injury report. Butler missed the second half of Game 3 with right knee inflammation and struggled in the past two games.

After averaging 35 points in the first two games, Butler has averaged nine in the past three. He was a combined 7-of-32 shooting across Games 4 and 5.

In addition to Herro, Miami listed four other players as questionable: guards Kyle Lowry (left hamstring), Max Strus (right hamstring) and Gabe Vincent (left hamstring) as well as forward P.J. Tucker (left knee).

Strus has missed all 16 of his field-goal attempts over the past two games while Lowry is 1-for-12.
