Bird (nose) has been cleared to play in Game 5 against the Mercury on Tuesday, Andrew Joe Potter of The Score reports.
ANALYSIS
Bird suffered a broken nose during Game 4, but will apparently tough it out and play through the issue in Game 5 on Tuesday as the Storm look to close out the series. She's expected to wear a mask to protect the nose and at this point, doesn't appear set to have any sort of restrictions.

Nose
September 2, 2018
Bird suffered a broken nose in the second quarter of Sunday's Game 4 against the Mercury and did not return.
ANALYSIS
The Storm ended up losing by two in Sunday's contest, which means Bird will only have two days to be ready for a series-deciding Game 5. If Bird is cleared, chances are the point guard will have to wear a protective mask.
