The Golden State Warriors game on Tuesday night saw Miami Heat guard Tyler Herro leave in the second quarter due to an eye injury.
On Tuesday night, the Miami Heat are hosting the Golden State Warriors, but just before intermission, guard Tyler Herro suffered a left eye injury.
Moses Moody, a player for the Warriors, smacked Herro across the face and eye while competing for a rebound after a missed shot by the team. Herro instantly collapsed to the floor in agony and needed assistance getting to the Heat bench before returning to the locker room right away.
Before halftime, shortly after the injury, the Heat disclosed that Herro had sustained a left eye contusion and that his comeback was in doubt.
Due to his outstanding play a season ago, Herro, the 2021–22 NBA Sixth Man of the Year, has been promoted to the starting lineup.
Tyler Herro was averaging 19.9 points and 6.6 rebounds while shooting 46.8 percent from the field and 37.5 percent from three-point range entering Tuesday’s game.
Herro scored two points on 1-4 shooting, one rebound, one assist, one steal, and one block at the time of his departure against the Warriors.
Tyler Herro was a crucial component of the Miami Heat’s success, thus his injury is very worrisome for a squad that has had a rough start to the season.
The Heat will provide further information regarding Herro’s eye issue at some point during or shortly after Tuesday’s contest versus the Warriors.
