Miami HEAT center Hassan Whiteside was poked in the right eye late in the team’s 117-114 loss at Boston on Friday and did not return.

Whiteside told reporters that a doctor gave him drops to numb the eye, which he could not see out of.

The star big man said he will visit an eye doctor when the team returns to Miami on Saturday.
