NBA Season Restart 2019-20

Anthony Davis leaves after being poked in eye, does not return

Wes Iwundu takes scary fall, suffers laceration above eye

The Lakers’ Anthony Davis was inadvertently poked in the eye with 2:09 left in the first quarter vs. the Magic and did not return to the exhibition game in Orlando.

Davis was battling with the Magic’s Khem Birch for a rebound when Birch swiped Davis in the face.

The Lakers star was having an excellent game with nine points and 10 rebounds in nine minutes. Although the injury did not appear to be serious as Davis re-appeared from the locker room, he was kept out of the remainder of the scrimmage as a precaution.

For the Magic, Wes Iwundu left early in the second quarter after taking a nasty fall as he tried to hang on the rim following a dunk.

Iwundu landed awkwardly on his upper body and face and appeared to have a laceration above his left eye. He left under his own power, holding a towel on his face, but did not return.
