In addition to his trademark New Balance kicks, Matt Bonner will also be sporting this lovely protective mask for the next four weeks after suffering a nasal fracture against the Orlando Magic on Friday.

Bonner really looks like he belongs on the cover of an upcoming horror movie.

Matt Bonner to become 'Masked Mamba' following nasal fracture

by Jan 18, 8:14 PM

Matt Bonner's superhero alter ego, The Red Mamba, is set to get an accessory addition for the next month.

After suffering a nasal fracture on Friday, Bonner will now have to wear a protective mask for four weeks. He may also require offseason surgery. He will not, however, have to miss any time beyond Sunday's game.

In 32 games this season, the 33-year-old Bonner is averaging 3.3 points and 1.6 rebounds while shooting 47.4 percent on threes. Hopefully the mask doesn't impact his depth perception from long range.
