Magic center Dwight Howard said he will visit an eye doctor later today to examine his right eye but he doesn’t expect his vision issues to cost him any game or practice time.
Howard was eye raked across both eyes while soaring for a loose ball with Samuel Dalembert. Sammy, obviously knowing he was not going to grab the rebound over the Magic’s beast in the middle, took the cheap way out and performed his best wrestling move. Sammy used the eye-rake which was made famous a ways back my Mankind, aka Dude Love, and went right for Superman’s only penetrable body part, his eye socket.
Howard Dwight told the Daily News that he suffered no pain or blurriness in either eye but was seeing spots in front of his right eye when he closed it.
Just when I close it, it’s a whole bunch of flashing lights and stuff. I’m not worried.
After a light practice shooting free throws with assistant Patrick Ewing, Howard said he doesn’t expect to miss any practice or game time. The teams meet again in Orlando Wednesday night where the Sixers look to shock the world.
