Los Angeles Lakers' power forward Anthony Davis has been forced to sit out the remainder of the team's crucial showdown with the Golden State Warriors after suffering an eye injury. 

The incident occurred late in the first quarter when Davis collided with Warriors rookie Trayce Jackson-Davis while driving to the basket, resulting in an accidental poke to the eye.

Despite initially attempting to soldier on, Davis was visibly affected, rubbing his eye and exhibiting discomfort on the court.

Subsequently, he was sidelined for examination by the Lakers' medical staff. Following thorough assessment, Davis was diagnosed with a corneal abrasion, as confirmed by a report from Shams Charania.

Davis' absence from the game marks a significant setback for the Lakers in their quest for a pivotal victory. 

Prior to his departure, Davis contributed eight points, four rebounds, two assists, one steal, and one block in what proved to be a productive opening quarter.

The Lakers find themselves in a tense battle with the Warriors for ninth place in the Western Conference standings. 

With the season series currently tied at 1-1, every game holds immense importance in shaping the playoff picture. The Lakers and Warriors are slated to face off for the fourth and final time on April 9, adding further intrigue to their ongoing rivalry.
