Erden, Gee suffer facial injuries for Cavaliers


CLEVELAND (AP) -- Cavaliers center Semih Erden and guard Alonso Gee were both taken to the locker room after sustaining facial injuries.

The injuries occurred in the first quarter of Tuesday night's game against Detroit.

Erden was poked above the right eye by teammate Antawn Jamison while the two were going for a rebound. He needed four stitches to close the cut and returned to the bench in the second quarter.

Gee suffered a nose contusion after being hit by a forearm from the Pistons' Tayshaun Prince. Gee was defending Prince, who was driving to the basket.

Both players were questionable to return.
