LOS ANGELES -- Not to be outdone by Kobe Bryant's newest accessory, Chris Paul will wear a mask for the Los Angeles Clippers' game Sunday night against the Golden State Warriors.

The Clippers said Sunday that Paul suffered a nasal fracture in the first quarter of the team's game against the San Antonio Spurs on Friday when he was elbowed by Danny Green and will wear a similar clear mask to the one Bryant has worn since Dwyane Wade fractured Bryant's nose in the NBA All-Star Game.

The injury did not seem to slow down Paul against the Spurs as he finished with 36 points and 11[..]ists in the Clippers' 120-108 win over San Antonio.
