Jonas Jerebko broke his nose Sunday vs LA; intends to play with mask

Jonas Jerebko broke his nose in Sunday's game against the Los Angelos Clippers, but he intends to still be available for the Celtics on their upcoming road trip. He's going to wear one of those plastic masks to protect his face. As if the Swede wasn't intimidating enough, that mask is going to make him look even more menacing:

Jerebko's nose got busted on a collision with Jaylen Brown under the Celtics basket in the beginning of the 4th quarter:

Jonas might not fill up the stat sheet every night but he's been a key contributor for the Celtics as he comes into the game and tries to fill in whatever role they need him to play. He's got great size/length yet he's quick enough to guard smaller forwards, so he's an ideal fit for Brad Steven's defensive system which relies heavily on switching.

Fun Fact: The Celtics are 12-1 when Jerebko plays at least 20 minutes this year.
