Herro broke the ring and middle finger on his hand, Haynes reported, 

Coach Erik Spoelstra later confirmed that Herro will indeed miss the remainder of the playoffs.

Clearly, it’s a big loss for the Heat, spoiling an otherwise bright day of beating the Eastern Conference’s top seed on its own home floor. Herro suffered the injury while diving for a loose ball in the second quarter.

Last season’s Sixth Man of the Year, Herro started 67 games this year and averaged 20.1 points, 5.4 rebounds and 4.2 assists.
