MIAMI (AP) - LeBron James has a broken nose, and his availability for the Miami Heat on Sunday against Chicago will be a game-time decision.
The Heat announced the diagnosis after James' injury was evaluated Friday. He missed the final 5:50 of Thursday's game at Oklahoma City when he was struck inadvertently by defender Serge Ibaka on a drive to the basket.
James finished with a dunk but then crumpled to the floor, blood gushing from his nose. He left the court with a towel over his face.
He passed a concussion test but didn't talk to reporters after the Heat's victory, instead sitting in front of his locker with a towel draped over his head. The team was off Friday.
James has missed one game this season.
