Chris Paul warmed up for Sunday's game against Golden State with a very familiar accessory. A Kobe mask. Paul was hit in the face during the first quarter of Friday's game against San Antonio. A Clippers spokesman said that Paul received an X-ray on Saturday and it revealed that Paul had sustained a nasal fracture. He added that Paul will be wearing the mask for a few weeks. Paul apparently sustained the injury in the first half when he was elbowed by Spurs swingman Danny Green.

You have to think that Miami Heat star LeBron James, if only for a moment, wished he was still wearing his protective mask during Sunday's game against the Chicago Bulls. James, who broke his nose two weeks ago, got tangled up with Chicago's Jimmy Butler during the game. As each man fell to the ground, Butler's foot swung around and hit James in the side of his head. They sort of wrestled with each other while getting up and both were given a technical foul. The Bulls defeated the Heat, 95-88, in overtime.

Chris Paul had never worn a protective mask until warmups Sunday, just hours before the Clippers faced Golden State. In fact, he didn't even know he'd need it until Saturday, when X-rays revealed that he'd suffered a nasal fracture in the first quarter of Friday's win against San Antonio when he was hit in the face by Spurs swingman Danny Green . During his team's 97-93 loss to the Warriors, Paul was hit on the nose several...

JUPITER, Fla. - It's not quite 10 on a hot and sticky Saturday morning when Ryan Powers strides onto a remote back field at a minor league training complex. Carrying a protective titanium mask that reeks from previous sweat-soaked bouts with the punishing South Florida weather, he wears bulky pads beneath his uniform of gray slacks and a black polo shirt. Powers is an umpire. At 19, the second-youngest in professional baseball. Behind the plate for the next two hours and 15 minutes, he will squat low more than 200 times, render decisions on nearly as many pitches, and try to maintain order among teams of newly minted Major League Baseball prospects.

Forward Rodney Rogers, who underwent plastic surgery Wednesday after breaking his nose when he was elbowed by rookie guard Allen Iverson in Tuesday night's victory over the Philadelphia 76ers, looked like the Phantom of the Sports Arena in the protective mask he wore in Friday night's 94-92 victory over the Toronto Raptors. Rogers, who missed three of four shots in 15 minutes and had three points and one assist, said the mask didn't interfere with his vision.

It's only been a week since Kobe Bryant and Dwyane Wade squared up in what turned out to be a pretty physical game. This time, the game actually matters. The Lakers host the Miami Heat Sunday at Staples Center, and there's certainly plenty of storylines involving the game. But the main one involves Bryant and Wade. Bryant has worn a plastic mask for the past week after Wade's hard foul in the 2011 All-Star game gave him a concussion, broken nose and whiplash on his neck.

Kyle Kerlegan: Northridge Basketball: Guard Senior: 6-foot-2 What was Kyle Kerlegan thinking just before Aaron Bell, Weber State's 6-foot-5, 225-pound forward, ran him over? "I was kind of wondering that too," Kerlegan said with a laugh. Actually, Kerlegan was thinking that he was taking one for the team, but Bell was not assessed a charging foul; Kerlegan, the player on the floor, was labeled the aggressor. "I'm pretty sure I was there first," Kerlegan said.

The Lakers' off-season, whenever it starts, becomes a little more intriguing whenever Ramon Sessions and Jordan Hill have strong games. They will probably be unrestricted free agents July 1. Their contributions are usually notable, though they each struggled Tuesday against the Denver Nuggets in Game 5 of the first round. Sessions, 26, becomes a free agent with a few strokes of a pen. He is expected to opt out of the final year of a contract that pays him $4.6 million next season.

It's Mask Madness in Los Angeles. Apparent trendsetter Kobe Bryant started the look less than two weeks ago, using the facial accessory to protect a broken nose, concussion and a neck injury. Then on Sunday, Chris Paul gave the fad some additional star power by wearing a clear model in the Clippers' 97-93 loss to the Golden State Warriors in front of 19,183 at Staples Center. Yet his fashion statement, which serendipitously occurred just days before L.A.'s 10-day Fashion "Week" begins Thursday, didn't result in too stylish a show.

The Lakers were playing poorly, their followers increasingly agitated. A 15-12 record wasn't doing much for the public. Neither was idling in the middle of the 15-team Western Conference. But the Lakers look better these days, winners of eight of 10, pushing back against fans' angst and silencing the media for now. "It's funny how that happens," Kobe Bryant said dryly, as if he'd seen this show plenty of times. The Lakers are 3-0 since the All-Star break and have a chance to extend their mini-run with a three-game trip against teams with a combined 40-74 record.

It could be the masked man versus the marked one. A week after Dwyane Wade smacked Kobe Bryant in the nose and the rest of the NBA winced, the All-Star duo will share the court again Sunday afternoon at Staples Center. If there are hard feelings, they apparently reside only with Bryant's Lakers teammates. Wade apologized for the hard foul he committed last weekend in Orlando, and Bryant not only downplayed the incident but also praised his Miami Heat counterpart as being a "nicer guy than I am. " Wade might not find the Lakers not wearing No. 24 to be so pleasant.

A broken nose won't keep Michigan State's Raymar Morgan out of today's Midwest Regional final. The starting forward has been fitted for a protective mask, and he plans to wear it during the game against top-seeded Louisville. Morgan was injured early in the second half of Friday night's 67-62 victory over defending national champion Kansas. "The mask felt all right," Morgan said Saturday. "A lot of people play with a broken nose, so it should be good.
