LeBron James of the Miami Heat suffered a face injury on a massive dunk on Serge Ibaka in the Heat’s win over the Thunder on Thursday, eventually bleeding on the court before leaving the game and going back to the locker room.
It appears James suffered the injury, finished the dunk, and then realized he was hurt. So that’s pretty nuts. We’ll have to see if James misses Sunday’s game against Chicago, or if he’s forced to wear a mask to protect his face.
