Villanueva was able to knock down both of his free throws with a large piece of tissue stuck in his nose to stop the bleeding before exiting the game.

"Just letting everyone know that, I had successful surgery today for my broken nose, thanks everyone for showing me love, I greatly appreciate it," Villanueva wrote on his twitter page.

The injury means the Pistons' could be without their four highest paid players against Chicago on Wednesday. Ben Gordon is questionable with an ankle sprain, while Richard Hamilton (ankle) and Tayshaun Prince (back) remain out.
