Star Dallas Mavericks big man Kristaps Porzingis suffered an ugly looking facial injury during Wednesday night’s blowout loss to the Memphis Grizzlies.

As crazy as it might seem after seeing him bleeding profusely from the nose, Porzingis remained in the game. He is a real-life unicorn, after all.

There’s better news on this front for Dallas. Despite suffering a broken nose, Porzingis is officially listed as questionable for Friday’s game against the Washington Wizards.

We are sure the big man will look like “The Masked Singer” out there, but at least he’s likely going to give it a go.

Porzingis is averaging 35.0 points and 12.0 rebounds over the past three games. Dallas will want him on the court with Luka Doncic still sidelined to an ankle injury.
