LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles Lakers center Anthony Davis suffered an eye injury in the first half of Saturday night’s NBA game against the Golden State Warriors and won’t return, according to the team.

The Lakers described the injury as an eye contusion.


The nine-time All-Star got poked in the left eye by Golden State’s Trayce Jackson-Davis while driving to the basket for a layup with 2:47 remaining in the first quarter.
