Irving played just one minute of the 114-111 Nets win. He left the game after the Lakers’ Rajon Rondo inadvertently hit him in the face while shielding the ball.
Irving suffered the facial fracture Sept. 24 when he was elbowed in the face during a pickup game. He was wearing a mask for Thursday’s game in Shanghai.
After being hit by Rondo, Irving immediately took off his mask, winced and signaled to the bench that he was coming off the floor.
Caris LeVert, who left Thursday’s game after being poked in the eye in the first quarter, is listed as questionable for Saturday.
