Luckily, he wasn't out long

Enes Kanter is one one tough guy.

The Portland Trail Blazers center proved this Thursday night against the Philadelphia 76ers after taking an elbow from teammate Robert Covington while battling for a rebound late in the second quarter.

The blow, though accidental, left Kanter bleeding from above his left eye.

Ouch.

Kanter was quickly stitched up and came back out to start the second half.

Thank goodness it wasn’t more serious.
