LeBron James plays Thursday in protective mask against the Knicks

By Matt Moore | NBA writer

LeBron James is playing for the Miami Heat Thursday night in a protective mask for his broken nose, as Miami takes on the New York Knicks in Madison Square Garden. Before the game, coach Erik Spoelstra told reporters:

James suffered the injury last Thursday vs. OKC when Serge Ibaka hit him in the face on a drive in which he dunked before falling and bleeding on the sideline. James had surgery last Friday to repair his nose, and missed Miami's game Sunday vs. Chicago.
