LeBron James suffers broken nose in win over Thunder

By Matt Moore | NBA writer

The Miami Heat announced Friday that LeBron James suffered a broken nose on his dunk on Serge Ibaka. He's listed as a gametime decision for Sunday vs. Chicago.

Here's what happened on the play.


James left the game in the fourth quarter and did not return. It was later announced he cleared the concussion test. Miami went on to win the game in convincing fashion. Our own Royce Young wrote on how James' performance may have put him back in the MVP conversation.

James later posted this to Instagram:
