The Lakers announced Sunday that Kobe Bryant suffered a nasal fracture during the All-Star game after a foul from Dwyane Wade. The Lakers say that Bryant will be re-evaluated Monday by an ear, nose, and throat specialist and is expected to resume practice Tuesday, according to the Orange County Register

Update: Yahoo Sports reports that Bryant also sustained a "mild concussion" on the play. If so, Bryant will be subject to the NBA's new concussion policy, which requires league approval for him to return to the court.

Here's video of the play from Wade in the third quarter which resulted in the broken schnoz:  



Clearly a purposeful foul in an All-Star game, which isn't going to endear Wade to Lakers fans. Bryant stayed in the game and passed Michael Jordan for all-time leader in points scored in the All-Star Game. Wade also famously was involved in the injury to Rajon Rondo in last year's Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Celtics.

The Salt Lake Tribune reported that Bryant was suffering from headaches after the game, which lead to him missing media availability after the game.

When you said 3 MVP's did you mean two? When you said the Heat are going to win it all, did you mean the Bulls?

Here's Wade's COMICAL denial of steroid use when D.Rose basically called him out for being a steroid abuser. Wade acted as if he had never even heard of steroids....

That's what's so great about Kobe. He achieved all his success so hard work and skill. Not ROIDS like Wade and LeRoids....Bottom line, Steroids may make you fast and jump high, but it apparently doesn't make you a champion. Just ask Leriods and Wade.

Peace... 
Um Wade has a ring...

I love all the Heat haters.  Its funny how you all have to believe some kind of bullcrap about them.  Calling Lebron, LeButt is not even funny.  At all.  A group of thugs?  Oh yeah, they all dress in the same clothes and they live in Miami, must be thugs.  Heat will win it all this year and you crybabies will only come up with new excuses on why they won or how they cheated.  Freakin pansies.  Lebron sucks so bad he has 3 MVP's and been to the finals several times.  True, he has yet to win it but we all know its only a matter of time.  Stop all the hate and give the man some props for always putting on a show and playing great ball.  Kudos to Kobe for passing Jordan

The crazy thing about this is that Kobe actually digs that style of play so he's got no problem with it.  He does not see "Preseason" or "All-Star" games as any different than "Regular Season" or "Playoff" games.  He just sees basketball.  He'll get down however you like...he's just there to try and beat you.  Ball don't lie...

Wade has been a dirty player for years now. I call him D-Whistle for the way he creates contact and plows into people trying to get to the foul line. Which the refs, more often than out, give him. This is really low class, even for him.

I agree!!!  That HEAT team has become a gang of thugs led by LeButt.  I'm certainly no fan of Kobe the man, BUT he is one helluva hoops player ... and this being a glorified exhibition game, that kind of behavior was TOTALLY uncalled for!! GLAD THAT THE WEST WON!!! AND that Durant got MVP!!! GO THUNDER!!!
Someone's wound a little tight. Lay off the caffeine.  If you honestly believe all of that bs you just said, then you need to educate yourself a little better.
