(Newser) – Dwayne Wade's foul against Kobe Bryant in last night's NBA All-Star Game left the Lakers star with a nasal fracture. Bryant suffered a good old-fashioned bloody nose, but stayed in the game, ESPN reports. Afterward, a CT scan showed a broken nose. Bryant is due to be reevaluated today by a specialist. "I obviously didn't try to draw no blood, but I took a foul," Wade said. "Kobe fouled me two times in a row, so he's still got one up on me." Still, Bryant had the last laugh, scoring 27 points—breaking Michael Jordan's All-Star record—and leading his Western Conference to a 152-149 win. (Read more Kobe Bryant stories.)
