It's clear: No black mask for LeBron
The Miami Heat star had not gotten NBA approval for the black mask to protect his broken nose, and the league directed him to wear a clear one.
"We've had numerous ones made, so he will have his pick and will choose one that is authorized also by the league," coach Erik Spoelstra told ESPN.com.
James wore a clear mask in Saturday's 112-98 home win over Orlando, scoring 20 points.
The league has made similar rulings for Cleveland's Kyrie Irving and the Lakers' Kobe Bryant.
