Golden State Warriors center Andrew Bogut suffered a cut above his right eye tonight against the New Orleans Pelicans in the third quarter, and was listed as questionable to return to the game. Looking at the replay, the injury occurred after a head-on-head collision with Pelicans forward Dante Cunningham after Bogut went for a loose ball.

The laceration required stitches, but didn't seem to be a serious injury that will cost the starting center any extra time despite its proximity to his previous nose injury.

Bogut ultimately never returned to the game and we'll await status updates prior to the Warriors' next game on Friday.
