Timofey Mozgov suffers laceration in mouth, but no concussion

Los Angeles Lakers starting center Timofey Mozgov has no facial fracture or concussion but has a contusion around his left eye and will be evaluated daily, the team announced on Thursday.

Mozgov suffered multiple facial injuries in Tuesday's 115-108 loss to the Indiana Pacers at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. He was ruled out of Wednesday's game against the Hawks in Atlanta and is listed as doubtful for Friday night's game against the Warriors.

He was examined by Lakers team doctors Thursday morning.

Mozgov received four stitches after the game to repair a laceration in his mouth after taking an elbow to the face. He had a CT scan Wednesday in Atlanta.

After Tuesday's game, Lakers coach Luke Walton remarked that Mozgov's swollen face made it appear as though he had been in a "heavyweight fight."

Mozgov finished with six points and five rebounds in about 19 minutes against the Pacers as the Lakers fell to 1-3.
