Anthony Davis made an early exit from the Lakers’ Saturday scrimmage.

The Lakers’ all-star center was poked in the eye in the second quarter of the exhibition against the Orlando Magic. Davis did not return to the game but he did watch the second half from the sideline. His status and the severity of the injury is unknown.

Before the Unibrow’s eye was poked, he was one point away from away from a double-double, recording nine points and ten rebounds in only nine minutes of action.

In all likelihood, the Lakers were acting out of an abundance of caution by keeping Davis on the sidelines. That may mean that he could miss their final exhibition, scheduled for Monday afternoon against the Washington Wizards.
