During the first quarter of Game 2 of the second-round NBA playoff series between the Warriors and Rockets, both Steph Curry and James Harden were forced to go to the locker room after getting injured.
Both suffered gruesome-looking injuries, but both returned to the game.
While Curry dislocated his left middle finger, Harden was swiped across the face and sustained a lacerated left eyelid.

When Harden returned to the court in the second quarter, TNT's cameras zoomed in on his face and the damage wasn't pretty.
