Tyler Hansbrough is not wearing a mask because he wants to be like Kobe Bryant. Well, he probably wouldn’t mind driving Kobe’s new car, but that’s not why he’s wearing the mask.

Hansbrough suffered a broken nose when Mike Dunleavy elbowed him in the face during a game Saturday, according to the Indy Star.

Hansbrough and Dunleavy, who were teammates for two seasons, were later given technicals when they were talking about the play during a free throw attempt.

When asked if he’s heard from Dunleavy, Hansbrough, said, “No, I don’t need an apology.”

Hansbrough is going to play through it but will be rocking the mask for a while.

    Dunleavy was getting back at Psycho because he broke his nose in a Pacers practice a couple of years ago.
