LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Los Angeles Lakers say Kobe Bryant has a “nasal fracture” after he was smacked in the nose by Dwyane Wade during the NBA All-Star game.

The team said on its website Monday that a CT scan revealed the extent of the injury, and the star guard will be re-evaluated by an ear, nose and throat specialist when he returns to Los Angeles.

Bryant was bloodied during Sunday night’s game in Orlando, Fla., which the West won 152-149. He was knocked to the floor by Wade and examined after the game.
