The Miami Heat overtook the Milwaukee Bucks in a surprising Game 1 win on Sunday.
With that victory, the Heat are setting fans up for what might be a very long, very exciting series.
But it’ll be without Tyler Herro.
In fact, the rest of the postseason will be lacking the sharp-shooting Heat player.
Herro broke his middle and ring finger during the game and is now set to miss the rest of the playoffs, according to multiple sources including Shams Charania.

The loss of Herro will definitely hurt the Heat.
The guard is posting 20.1 points, 5.4 rebounds, and 4.2 assists a game on 43.9% from the field.
The reaction to Herro’s injury was all over the web.
Some fans believed that his injured hand only gave him a headstart on a long summer trip.
Damn, just in time for Cancun thoughhhh

That is an idea that other NBA fans believe too.
The Heat won’t be playing in 2 weeks ..

Other people feel that Herro, who has proven that he is resilient in the past, will be back before we know it.
He is dropping a 40 bomb in game 7 of the Finals

There were quite a few people who commented on all of the NBA injuries from this past weekend.
On Sunday alone, Ja Morant, Anthony Davis, Giannis Antetokounmpo, and Herro all suffered a lot of hurt.

Herro will be dearly missed in the days and weeks ahead.
The Heat already had a lot stacked against them as the eighth seed in the East.
Beating the Bucks and moving further into the playoffs was always going to be a tough task.
But not having Herro on their side will make it even tougher.
