Matt Bonner takes shoulder to broken nose against Nets (GIF)


Matt Bonner was already playing with a broken nose for the San Antonio Spurs on Thursday night, but any hopes of that bay boy healing up anytime time shattered along with the rest of Bonner’s face when he took hard shoulder from Shaun Livingston against the Brooklyn Nets.

Bonner was already in a mask to try and protect his face, but his hit he took from Livingston shows that the masks they wear to protect them aren’t as sound as they may seem. They actually don’t look that sound, as putting a mask on almost seemed to make the hit worse.

The injuries seem to be piling up for San Antonio, but as bad as Nando de Colo’s injury was, this one hurts twice as much for Bonner — literally.
