Anthony Davis of the Los Angeles Lakers suffered a very scary eye injury the other night during a game against the Golden State Warriors.

Because of the pain and swelling in his eye, he was only able to play about 12 minutes with his team during their loss to Golden State.

However, Davis is expected to make a full recovery and was with the Lakers again on Monday when they strongly beat the Atlanta Hawks.

After the game, Davis spoke with Dave McMenamin and the press about the mishap that damaged his eye.

“[It] was actually right in the middle of my eye … I thought my eye was like, [torn] open,” Davis said.

Davis said that he couldn’t see at all during the Warriors game but he could tell that he would be okay soon.

He remained in the locker room for most of the game but he said he noticed progress before he headed home for the night, which was obviously a good sign.

Eye injuries are always very concerning and can be quite serious.

So Lakers fans are lucky that Davis was able to come back to the court just a few days later.

On Monday night, he posted 22 points and 15 rebounds in a big win over the Hawks.

Because of his team’s dominant performance, Davis was only needed for 31 minutes and was able to rest on the bench for the rest of the game.

Davis is averaging 24.4 points and 12.3 rebounds this season, reclaiming his place as one of the best defensive big men in the league.

The Lakers are always much better with Davis on the floor and the thought of losing him, especially as the postseason gets so close, is scary.

Thankfully, Davis’ eye is okay and he is ready to take on the rest of the regular season.
