PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A basketball player wearing a mask during an NBA game because of a facial injury is nothing new. Many players, after breaking a nose or another facial bone, have worn masks to allow them to continue to play as they heal.

So when Lebron James broke his nose in a game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, it wasn’t surprising when he returned wearing a mask. The difference this time, is that instead of the clear mask that most players have worn, James chose an all black version.

It wasn’t quite the Bane mask James suggested on his Instagram account that he might wear, but it was intimidating none the less.
