Sue Bird Breaks her Nose Again
Mar 28th, 2012 at 9:56am
 
Ros Casares Fly Past Bird-less Ekat

Because this incident probably deserves its own thread separate from the Euroleague play-offs, which will continue.

Michelle89 and others also have twitter comments confirming, though I think we're waiting on the official "broken" diagnosis.  Shocked

Yeah hopefully Brian Agler has some (good) news soon. He tweeted to the writer of Euroleague women what happened so i think Brian is in contact with Bird.

Storm point guard Sue Bird suffered an injury to her nose and was taken to a nearby hospital, where X-rays confirmed a break. Bird, who previously broke her nose during the 2004 Playoffs and in 2005, told Storm Head Coach Brian Agler that she will be back on the court for Thursday’s second game of group play wearing a protective facemask


Good to hear that she will play tomorrow though(with mask) Smiley

Ouch! Hope she recovers soon.

May be she should always play with a mask.
Cheers,

Ha-ha, and then it backfired by actually basically knocking her team out of the Finals. Sad Really the worst timing, even though it was not likely that they'd have beat Ros.  Undecided

Birdy's nose looks good so thats a relief. Dont think it needs surgery. Maybe they fixed it already in the hospital.

Just saw a report that Sue's going to need surgery on that nose after Euro's and will be out for a couple months.  After all the breaks, it's bent so much she's having trouble breathing, which is something I read her saying last season.  Now it's gotten worse.  Wearing a mask while playing won't help, because one inadvertent elbow could undo the post-surgery healing. 

Gonna be tough with no Lauren or Sue for part of the season.  Cry

Seriously though, if you take a good look at Sue's nose, it is crooked.  There's a distinctive bend to the left side of her face when you look at it from the front.
