All-Star point guard Darius Garland has been cleared of any structural damage after suffering a left eye laceration in the Cleveland Cavaliers' 108-105 loss to the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday.
Garland exited the game in the second quarter after an accidental poke to his eye from Raptors guard Gary Trent Jr.
The Cleveland guard could not return to play with his eye closed over, with Cavs head coach J.B. Bickerstaff confirming it was a "laceration on the inside of his eye lid" after the game.
The Cavs provided a status update on Thursday, revealing that Garland does not require surgery.
"The location of the injury required further evaluation and Garland missed the remainder of the game versus the Raptors," the Cavs said.
"Garland will be re-evaluated over the next couple of days and his status will be updated as appropriate."
Cleveland's next game is against the Chicago Bulls on Saturday.
The Cavs are expected to contend for the playoffs this season, having bolstered their side with the addition of Donovan Mitchell alongside an emerging line-up featuring Jarrett Allen, Evan Mobley and Garland.
Garland averaged career-best numbers in 2021-22 leading to his maiden All-Star selection, with 21.7 points on 46.2 field goal percentage, 8.7 assists and 1.3 steals per game.
