Potentially Devastating Injuries To 2 Star Players In Heat/Bucks Game 1

The Milwaukee Bucks were forced to play most of Game One of their first-round series with the Miami Heat on Sunday without superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo. The two-time MVP had to leave the game in the second quarter with a lower back contusion after a frightening fall.

Giannis did try to play through it for a bit, but was ruled out for the second half. Naturally, if this were to develop into anything serious, the results for the No. 1 seed Bucks would be devastating.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the ledger, the Miami Heat's job just got a lot tougher as well, as they've learned that sharpshooting guard Tyler Herro has suffered a broken hand during Game One and will be out for the rest of the playoffs.

Herro was in "incredible pain" after diving to the floor for a loose ball, and was ready to head directly to the locker room before he was forced to stay in the game—and actually took a shot with the injured hand—as play continued. At the next whistle, however, Herro bolted from the court. 

A dispiriting day on the second day of the NBA playoffs, as Ja Morant also suffered a hand injury in the Memphis Grizzlies' 128-112 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers. He is questionable for Game Two at this point.
