The X-rays are in and it looks like LeBron James can be hurt, after all.
James, who has never suffered a serious injury or missed more than a handful of games in any season of his 11-year NBA career, broke his nose when he was hit by Serge Ibaka on a dunk attempt during Thursday night’s game between the Miami Heat and the Oklahoma City Thunder.
He is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bulls, the Heat announced.
James went to the rim late in Miami’s 103-81 victory over the Thunder and was struck in the face by Ibaka, who was defending James on the play. James completed the dunk but toppled to the ground. When he stood up, blood was dripping from his nose. He left the game and did not return.
