LeBron James diagnosed with broken nose; status for next game is questionable

Mark D. Smith-USA TODAY Sports

In the win over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday night, LeBron James suffered a broken nose while dunking over Thunder forward Serge Ibaka, his availability in the next game against the Chicago Bull is still up in the air.

Well, LeBron James might be human after all. LeBron had a great night, and pretty much did whatever he wanted against the Thunder defense. Despite that, the game did not end on a happy not for James, and it had Heat fans holding their breath, as they saw LeBron on the ground, with a lot of blood on the floor.

It was confirmed today that on this play, King James suffered a broken nose:

Out of all the injuries that could have happened, this is probably the least severe, as you can still play basketball with a broken nose, not a devastating injury at all, but we wish LeBron a speedy recovery.

His status for Sunday's game against the Chicago Bulls is a game-time decision, but it appears LeBron will likely try his best to play through the injury.

Unless LeBron feels 100%, I rest him against the Bulls, give him the day off, and make sure you don't make the injury any worse. I think LeBron has done enough to deserve a day off anyways.

With the broken nose, hopefully LeBron comes out with the Bane look:
