Miami Heat guard Tyler Herro suffered a broken right hand during Game 1 of their first-round series against the Milwaukee Bucks. The 23-year-old star guard underwent surgery on the hand last Friday and is expected to be sidelined for four to six weeks, depending on his rehabilitation. Herro sustained the injury late in the first half while diving for a loose ball. Despite watching a replay of the incident, he still could not determine how he broke his hand. Herro, who was playing in his hometown, said he had no regrets about diving for the ball and was just trying to create some energy for his team. The Miami Heat are currently leading their series against the Milwaukee Bucks and are just one win away from a historic upset. Jimmy Butler has been carrying the Heat in Herro's absence, and if the team makes it to the NBA Finals, there is a chance Herro could return. "That's the hope," Herro said before his surgery. "Get to the finals and I can get back for that." Herro has been a valuable member of the Heat this season, serving as the team's third-best scoring option with an average of 20.1 points, 5.4 rebounds, and 4.2 assists in the regular season. Tyler Herro Linked to Potential Damian Lillard Trade Despite the playoffs being in full swing, rumors are already circulating about a potential trade involving Damian Lillard. ESPN's Brian Windhorst suggested that if Lillard were to be traded, one of his preferred destinations would be Miami. The Heat have been linked to a potential trade, and if they were to make an offer, it would likely involve Herro, who is currently injured. "I suspect, I don't know for sure, just to be clear, I don't know for sure if they're going to offer him, but I suspect that would be the type of thing. That and draft picks," Windhorst said. However, Lillard has expressed his desire to win a championship with the Portland Trail Blazers, and it remains to be seen if he will be traded at all. In the meantime, the Miami Heat will continue to focus on the playoffs and their current series against the Milwaukee Bucks. Without Herro, the team will need Butler and the rest of their roster to step up and continue to play at a high level if they hope to advance further in the postseason.
