The already short-handed Toronto Raptors suffered another injury on Monday.
Within two minutes of the first quarter, LA Clippers forward Kawhi Leonard accidently poked OG Anunoby in the right eye.
Anunoby exited the game and did not return.

The Raptors lost Kyle Lowry and Serge Ibaka to injuries in Toronto's first game on this five-game road trip. Lowry will be re-evaluated in two weeks while Ibaka is out indefinitely.
TSN's Josh Lewenberg tweeted that Anunoby was wearing a bandage over his eye after the game and that he'll see an eye specialist on Tuesday. After his trip to the eye specialist, the Raptors reported that Anunoby has a "right eye contusion" and will not play against the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday.
Anunoby entered Monday's contest averaging a career-high 13.0 points per game to go along with 6.2 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 1.4 blocks and 1.3 steals.
