Miami, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - The Miami Heat announced that LeBron James suffered a broken nose during Thursday's win over the Oklahoma City Thunder and will be a game-time decision for the team's next contest.
James sustained the injury while throwing down an emphatic dunk midway through the fourth quarter of the Heat's 103-81 blowout victory over the Thunder. The four-time league MVP took a hard shot to the face from Oklahoma City's Serge Ibaka on the play and was down on the floor for several minutes before walking off to the locker room while covering his bloody nose with a towel.
Prior to exiting, James had racked up 33 points on 15-of-22 shooting in just 33 minutes.
The Heat have listed James as questionable for Sunday's home game against Chicago.
