Two-time NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo, two-time All-Star Ja Morant and Tyler Herro, keeping them from finishing their playoff openers.

Injuries to some of the NBA’s top stars has dimmed the start of this postseason with title hopes possibly fading just as quickly depending on how bad they’re hurt.

“We’ll monitor him and see how he does, see how he wakes up, how he feels,” Milwaukee coach Mike Budenholzer said of Antetokounmpo.

Both Antetokounmpo and the Memphis Grizzlies’ Morant were hurt on drives to the basket where each landed awkwardly.

Antetokounmpo came down hard on his backside after being fouled by Miami’s Kevin Love. The Bucks’ forward got up slowly with 4:13 left in the first quarter. He picked up his second foul about 2 1/2 minutes later but played about 11 minutes for the Eastern Conference’s No. 1 seed.
