04-04-2010, 03:07 PM
I didn't do extensive research about the numbers of previous years, but I have been playing fantasy basketball for 4 years now, and this year has given me the feeling that the players have been dropping like flies all season long.

Maybe the NBA has become a sissyboy league :injury::injury::injury::injury::injury:

This is a list of (more significant) players who have been injured for an extensive amount of time/went out for the season/have been injured during the closing weeks of the season/missed games for other reasons, etc:

Just include everyone on the Warriors roster..

They all got injured in the beginning of the season.

Some missed 10+ games, but now is back.

Some missed a few games.

Most are done for the season after 10-20+ games.

while I doubt this season is worse than any other, it sure seems as if there have been some injuries that really hurt teams more this year, than in any other year I can think of

Most are players who have been in the playoffs a lot recently or played international ball for multiple summers.

Guys have just logged a lot of basketball time lately because of how the FIBA tourney, Olympics, and European tourney have all been so close together to go with the BA grind
