Milwaukee Bucks big man Ersan Ilyasova left Tuesday night's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers after suffering a facial contusion. He will not return to the game.
Ilyasova had nine points in 12 minutes of action, but caught an inadvertent elbow from Tristan Thompson while going up for a rebound in traffic. Ilyasova was noticeably affected by the collision, and was unable to return after trying to shake it off.
Jason Kidd just said that Ersan was taken to the hospital after the game tonight. Must be more serious than just a contusion.— Mitch Vomhof (@mitchvomhof) December 3, 2014

Hopefully the injury isn't too serious. Fingers crossed.
