Akil Mitchell suffers eye injury - Clearer view

Better view of former Virginia basketball and current New Zealand basketball player Akil Mitchell receiving a horrific eye injury during a game against the Cairns Taipans at the North Shore Events Centre. Clearer only because it is not a grainy vertical video of a video.

The good news is that Mitchell’s injury is not as serious as the team initially feared. Mitchell “has vision to his injured eye,” general manager Dillon Boucher said in a statement. “While there is some damage, the early reports are very positive that the injury is not as serious as first feared.”

Mitchell also posted a lighthearted update on his condition on Twitter.
