In the final minute of the first half, Herro dove for a loose ball but did not beat his opponent to it.
Herro hit his hand on the court while sliding past the spot of the ball. Though in visible pain, he stayed in the game and attempted a shot before subbing out.
Earlier in the same game, Bucks star and league MVP finalist Giannis Antetokounmpo left the game with a lower back contusion and was ruled out.
