Szczerbiak broke nose, will play with a mask

Wally Szczerbiak broke his nose in Wednesday night’s win at New York in the third quarter but continued to play. Szczerbiak started the past two games while Sasha Pavlovic was out with the flu.

Szczerbiak was fitted with the mask on Friday and practiced with it on Saturday as the Cavaliers prepared for their Sunday game against the Los Angeles Lakers.

“I’m going to play him like normal,” Cavs coach Mike Brown said. “He should be good to go.”
