It was a fluke, an innocent play midway through the second quarter of an eventual Nets victory.

The Nets Shelden Williams gets the ball out by the three-point line, guarded by Tyler Hansbrough, and turns and face up. Hansbrough attempts to poke the ball free but catches Williams in the eye.

Williams left the game and had to go to the hospital. Now Andy Vasquez of the Bergin Record tweets he will be out a little while.

Shelden Williams out through at least April 5 with what the Nets call a right eye injury. SW was the only net to play in every game this yr.

Nets coach Avery Johnson sounded concerned after the game last night, according the New York Post. Williams did not join the Nets on a flight out to the West Coast for a few games.

But he was not going to stop the athletic Bradley Beal with a full head of steam, and the result was a Beal dunking over Porzingis as he tries to block the attempt.

Beal wasn’t sharp, scoring 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting. The Knicks has an efficient Carmelo Anthony and that got them the win.
