Montrezl Dashay Harrell returned to the basketball court yesterday after a prolonged stay on the league’s health and safety protocols list. He posted 12 points, but that’s not all NBA fans are talking about – Montrezl Harrell made quite a pre-game entrance in a Chemion LED face mask featuring the words, “I’m back”. Can you buy it?

Harrell played his first game since the Wizards’ Boxing Day matchup against the Philadelphia 76ers. So the mask wasn’t completely gratuitous: he really was back.
And it wasn’t misplaced either. He played for 24 minutes in last night’s game – more than his 22.7 minutes per game average in the month of December. He posted 12 points, managed seven rebounds, and made a successful block.
The Washington Wizards beat the Oklahoma City Thunder by four points. Watch his entrance below.

Why was Harrell out of action for so long?
Per CBS Sports, covid-19 protocols and conditioning kept Montrezl Harrell off the court during his team’s previous seven games.
The length of his absence notwithstanding, he “looked like his usual self in Tuesday’s game”.
It marked his sixth straight appearance with double-digit points.
The 27-year-old from Tarboro, North Carolina reportedly got into a physical altercation with teammate Kentavious Caldwell-Pope during the halftime break. Neither connected, but they “became entangled before teammates separated them”, The Athletic reports.
