The Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors were both hit with injury scares during Tuesday’s Game 2 of their second-round playoff series.
Rockets guard James Harden left during the first quarter with an eye injury after being swiped across the face by Draymond Green while driving to the basket and fighting for a rebound.
“He was bleeding from the eye,” Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni told TNT.
Harden spent some time in the locker room before returning to the sideline with a lacerated left eyelid. He returned to the game shortly after returning to the bench.

Warriors guard Stephen Curry left for the locker room during the first quarter after injuring his left middle finger. He returned to the court after a short break with his finger taped.
