LeBron expects to make masked return Thursday


MIAMI: Miami Heat superstar LeBron James expects to return to the lineup Thursday from a broken nose but wearing a protective face mask. “I’m definitely wearing a mask if I play Thursday,” James said after taking part in non-contact portions of the team’s workout Tuesday. James said that his nose has felt less painful every day since it was broken on Thursday by Oklahoma City big man Serge Ibaka as James drove to the basket on his way to a slam dunk in a road victory over the Thunder. James leads the two-time defending NBA champion Heat with 26.9 points, 7.1 rebounds and 6.5 assists a game this season.
