Found February 27, 2012 on Holdout Sports:
In the third quarter of Sunday's 2012 NBA All-Star Game, Kobe Bryant made a move for the basket when Dwayne Wade gave him a hard foul with his arm, hitting Kobe in the nose. Kobe had a bloody nose but continued to play.

However, later Sunday night the Los Angeles Lakers announced that a CT scan revealed that Kobe has a broken nose.

Kobe finished the game with 27 points and helped the Western Conference All-Stars defeat the Eastern Conference All-Stars 152-149. Kobe also broke Michael Jordan's career All-Star Game scoring record.
