10 Most Injury Prone NBA Players
Injuries and subsequent absences are part and parcel of being an NBA player. Stuff happens. Bodies collide. Ankles twist. Knees buckle. Joints freeze. Bones break. If you’re lucky, you avoid it. If you’re semi-lucky, you suffer only the occasional injury. If you’re just plain unlucky in volume, you wind up on this list. Previous players have had their careers destroyed by injuries such as Yao Ming and Tracy McGrady, but there are some current NBA players who could have been great but were struck by injuries. Here are the 10 most injury prone players.
10. Kevin Martin
Kevin Martin has played 11 seasons in the NBA and a total of 659 games. On average he plays 59 games per season which is about 2/3 of the NBA season.
