On Tuesday night the Lakers faced off in a heated match up against the Indiana Pacers. Timofey Mozgov left the game seriously banged up after taking two blows to the face.
The 7’1″ Russian required four stitches in his lips and his left eye was so swollen he could hardly see. Luke Walton said he looked like he just got out of a heavyweight fight.

He left the game after taking a hit to the lip from Jeff Teague, but returned later. Soon after his return he took a shot to the eye that sent him to the locker room.
He will miss Wednesday’s game as he needs a CT scan to find out whether or not he has an orbital fracture.
Tarik Black will start in his place against the Hawks on Wednesday night.
