ORLANDO, FLA. (AP) - Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard says he’s going to get his eyes examined after he was inadvertently scratched by Philadelphia 76ers center Samuel Dalembert.

Howard said Monday he would see an eye doctor but that the injury won’t keep him sidelined for Game 2 against the 76ers on Wednesday night. Dalembert swiped Howard’s eyes reaching for the ball late in the third quarter of Philadelphia’s 100-98 win over the Magic on Sunday night and was called for a foul.

Howard said he was “seeing just a whole bunch of crazy stuff” when he closed his eyes and felt a “pulsating” sensation when they were open.
