    Kyrie Irving Playing Through A Broken Jaw

    http://espn.go.com/nba/story/_/id/87...-jaw-play-mask

    NEW YORK -- Kyrie Irving has another injury and the Cavaliers have another masked player.

    Cleveland's star point guard, who only recently returned after missing 11 games with a broken finger, fractured a bone in his jaw when he took a hard fall in Friday night's loss at Milwaukee.

    Irving traveled separately from the Cavs to New York so he could be fitted with a protective mask that he will wear in Saturday's game against the Knicks at Madison Square Garden. He said he arrived less than three hours before the start of the game, having only slept about four hours.

    He said he wasn't in pain, and the only difficulty would be getting used to the mask, which earned him the nickname the "Dark Knight" in the locker room.

    "It's just precautionary, as usual," Irving said.


    Wow, what a tough dude.


    Anyone ever tried playing through such an injury in an sport here on PSD? Just curious.


    I'm thinking that area will be very sensitive, and it's very risky when driving to the basket as guys try to block the shot but instead end up whacking you across the face.

    Jason Whitten (sp?) from the Cowboys played with his jaw wired shut a while back.

    But yes, that is boss. I really, really like Irving.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    you can actually play with a jaw injury more than an ankle injury. why? because you're constantly applying force to jump, run and such. with your jaw, just take a painkiller at halftime, and you can bare through it. Stop overating injuries.
