10:39 AM ET 11.16 | Kyrie Irving is sporting a swollen, purple right eye, but his nose is straight. And that's all that matters to the Cavaliers point guard. Even so, Irving will have to wear a protective face mask for about two weeks, he said, after learning Friday that he suffered a broken nose when he was elbowed by the Timberwolves' Corey Brewer during the first quarter of Cleveland's game in Minnesota on Wednesday.
