Anunoby was injured two minutes into Toronto’s 98-88 loss against the Clippers in Los Angeles on Monday when he was accidentally poked in the eye by Clippers star Kawhi Leonard while the two battled for a rebound.

Raptors coach Nick Nurse said Anunoby lost both his contacts and was bleeding after the play, which didn’t draw a foul. Anunoby was seen with a bandage over his eye after the game.

Anunoby is having a breakout third season with the Raptors. He is averaging 11.7 points and 5.6 rebounds and 1.3 blocks a game, connecting on 52.8 per cent of his three-pointers and earning plaudits for his lockdown defence.
