Lakers’ Center Mozgov Suffers Facial Injuries


Los Angeles Lakers starting center Timofey Mozgov suffered multiple facial injuries in Tuesday’s 115-108 loss to the Indiana Pacers at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. It is unclear if he’ll be able to play Wednesday against the Hawks in Atlanta.

Mozgov received four stitches following the game to repair a laceration in his mouth after taking an elbow to the face. He will also receive a CT scan on Wednesday in Atlanta to determine if he suffered an orbital fracture after being poked in the left eye.
