Kendall Jenner’s NBA star boyfriend Devin Booker details gruesome nose surgery: ‘They break it back in place!’

Kendall Jenner‘s NBA star boyfriend – Phoenix Suns shooting guard Devin Booker – broke his nose during Tuesday night’s game against the Los Angeles Clippers.

Speaking to reporters on Thursday after losing to the Clippers in game three of the Western Conference finals, the Michigan-born star detailed his gnarly surgery after.

The 24-year-old said he went without anesthesia and after several numbing shots, his nose was broken again in order to put it back into place.

‘Like eight shots to numb it up and then they go in there and put it back, they break it again. They break it back in place,’ Devin said of the surgery on Wednesday. 

‘It’s a procedure that they usually say they put you under [anesthesia] for. But we had a flight out a couple hours later, so they just numbed it up — all over the place, it felt like,’ he continued.

During Thursday’s game against the Clippers, Devin was seen on the court with a plastic face shield to protect his nose.

Devin collided head-to-head with Clippers point guard Patrick Beverley during Tuesday night’s game, with Patrick inadvertently head-butting his nose.   

Blood quickly began pouring out of the bridge of Devin’s nose and he was rushed to the locker room where he received two stitches.  

The common foul left a gash on the Chicago-born 32-year-old’s forehead and he too was rushed to the locker room.

Many likened Devin’s laceration to Suns legend Steve Nash, whose nose famously broke during the 2007 Western Conference semifinals against the San Antonio Spurs.

Devin received a standing ovation from the audience upon returning to the Phoenix Suns Arena court during the start of the fourth quarter.

‘He was probably playing with a great deal of pain,’ Suns coach Monty Williams said in the post-game press conference.

‘I thought he broke his nose when I saw it. I worried about the blood continuing to flow.’

Devin wound up finishing the game with 20 points and pushed his team to a 104-103 victory by assisting an impressive slam dunk by Suns center Deandre Ayton. 

‘My first time was seeing [my injury] was after the game,’ the two-time NBA All-Star said in the press conference. ‘It’s a little crooked.’

Kendall – who was first linked to Devin in April 2020 – confirmed they were officially an item during the two-part Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s reunion special.

On Monday, the 25-year-old reality star even ‘liked’ an Instagram post from SportsCenter declaring Booker ‘the next Kobe Bryant’.
