Is it by games missed per season, is it by extent of past injuries?

For example some people might say Wade or Stoudemire is injury prone because of past injuries despite them playing full season over the last few. Others might say Granger is injury prone even though he hasn't had a major injury.

It's not just about missing games. It's about playing injured, and therefore not at their top capabilities.

So what's the cutoff point for games missed per season? And does finishing the season play any part?


I've never really heard people call Shaq injury prone, but by games played per season, he's probably one of the worst all time. He played 70 games 7 times in a 19 year career.

how about...multiple knee surgeries. I'd call that injury prone. Because not only were you injured in the past, but you're much more likely to be injured in the future too.

its not so much about the history so much as about the future, IMO injury prone means that its likely that such player will injure himself in short notice and will therefore not be at his best or doesnt play at all.


for example grant hill had a lot of injuries and wasted a lot of his playing career. but played an average of 81 games the last 3 seasons and played them at a high level too!
So as of now grant hill is NOT injuryprone.
(not looking at his age which complicates things of course)

I'd say 60-65

Injury prone is when a player either has missed games consistently throughout his career, or, IMO, plays so recklessly that he's bound to get hurt (i.e. Wade when driving to the hoop). Thus, he's prone to getting injured because of his style of play.
