LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers missed the second half of Sunday’s NBA All-Star Game in Salt Lake City after injuring his right hand in the first half.

James hit his pinky finger on the rim while trying to block a shot by Pascal Siakam of the Toronto Raptors. He scored 13 points in 14-plus minutes while serving as captain as Team LeBron.


James shares the All-Star selections record of 19 with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.


Also, Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo scored the game’s first points on a dunk 15 seconds into the contest and then exited for the night. He sprained his right wrist in Milwaukee’s final regular-season game before the break on Thursday night.

Antetokounmpo and Team Giannis beat Team LeBron, 184-175, behind Jayson Tatum’s record performance.
