Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant suffered a nasal fracture during the Western Conference’s 152-149 win over the East on Sunday night, the team announced on its website.
Bryant was bloodied by a hard foul from Miami’s Dwyane Wade and stayed in the game, but he left to be evaluated afterward. A CT scan revealed a broken nose.
He was expected to be examined and re-evaluated by ear, nose and throat specialist Dr. John Rehm on Monday when he returns to Los Angeles. He didn’t attend the postgame media session Sunday.
