Miami Heat star LeBron James left Oklahoma City with more than a win on Thursday night; he also took home a broken nose.

The team confirmed via Twitter on Friday that James suffered a broken nose during a fourth quarter incident in the Heat's 103-81 victory over Oklahoma City.

James is now listed as a game-time decision for Sunday's match-up against Chicago (3:30 PM, Local 10). ESPN.com is reporting that James expects to play vs. the Bulls.

LeBron suffered the injury while driving to the basket in the fourth quarter of Thursday night's game. The Thunder's Serge Ibaka inadvertently hit James the face.

After bleeding on the court, James left the floor and headed to the locker room. James didn't return to the game or speak with the media afterwards.
