NBA injuries

  1. It may seem like it, but lockout does not equal more injuries

    Curry injured AP

    You knew this would come — the talk around the league that the lockout and shortened training camps had led to more injuries, more sprained ankles and more traumatic injuries. anecdotal evidence seems to back that up. Al Horford is down for the season after surgery to repair his pectoral muscle Tuesday, a similar injury…

  2. Don’t go blaming the lockout when injuries pile up

    Los Angeles Lakers v Dallas Mavericks

    Starting Dec. 9 when training camps open, guys are going to get injured. And when it happens you are going to inevitably hear an announcer or that fool down bar from you drinking Bud Light say, “That’s because of the lockout.” No, it’s not. While it seems intuitive, it just doesn’t work that way. A…

  3. Bucks claim “honors” as NBA’s most injured team. Congratulations!

    Los Angeles Lakers v Milwaukee Bucks

    Yes, we know. Your team would have done so much better if it weren’t for the injuries. Just know that there is always some team that had it worse. Unless you’re a Milwaukee Bucks fan. Over at Basketball Prospectus, friend-of-the-site Kevin Pelton did the heavy lifting and compiled the lists of man games lost to…

  4. Noah sidelined again with plantar fasciitis

    Feb 27, 2010, 3:16 PM EST

    Joakim Noah keeps trying to overcome his plantar fasciitis, one of the most painful, debilitating injuries in the NBA, and the injury keeps winning. Noah played 27 minutes in the Bulls’ overtime win over the Blazers, but came down and hurt his foot again drawing a foul in the extra session. Post-game, the Bulls announced…

  5. BREAKING: Josh Howard out for the season with torn ACL

    Feb 23, 2010, 2:59 PM EST

    UPDATE 2:58PM: D-League blog Ridiculous Upside is reporting that Mike Harris of the Rio Grande Valley Vipers in the D-League will be called up to take Howard’s place. Harris just got back from a stint with RGV’s affiliate the Houston Rockets and is widely considered the top call-up prospect in the D-League. 12:45 am: Mike…

  6. Tony Parker has no concept of his body's own limitations

    Feb 18, 2010, 5:19 PM EST

    Tony Parker has battled plantar fasciitis this year, a condition which is, to be honest, painful as all get-out. It hasn’t affected his speed, nor his patented dribble-hesitation as much as it has his focus and his jump shot. Then again, you also have to factor in how much of his game has been impacted…

  7. Could Brandon Roy be done for the year?

    Feb 17, 2010, 1:02 AM EST

    The Portland Trailblazers have given new meaning to snakebit. Murphy’s Law has actually been renamed The McMillan Corollary. They’ve lost more guys to injury than a squad in Modern Warfare. But Martell Webster is back, they just traded for Marcus Camby to help with their frontcourt decimation, and surely things are looking brighter, right? Welll……

  8. Blazers Coach McMillan believes Red Bull did not give his team wings

    Feb 10, 2010, 2:04 AM EST

    The Blazers continue to give it the ol’ college try despite losing half their team to injury (including their coach splitting an ACL- seriously, what did Portland do to the Fates?). Granted, sometimes the ol’ college try is interpreted literally, clanging mid-range jumpers and lacking a consistent defensive force inside, but you know what we…
