His status for Sunday's game against the Chicago Bulls will be determined just before the game.

The injury occurred when James was hit in the face by Thunder center Serge Ibaka while James was driving to the basket with 5:56 remaining in the fourth quarter.

No foul was called on the play. James bled on the floor before heading to the locker room. He did not return to the game or comment afterward.
