With players like Derrick Rose already scheduled to miss time to start the 2012-2013 NBA season, the concern for injury will never be higher. This will be the first full NBA season in two years and players will react differently to the change coming out of the lockout-shortened season just as much as going into it.
After playing in a condensed 66-game schedule, the NBA will return to a full 82-games next season. For two sets of players, rookies and sophomores, this will be their first taste of a full NBA season. For others, there is no telling of the wear and tear this past year had on them.
These 10 players are at the biggest risk for injury in the upcoming season due to past experiences, age or youth. While we wish harm on no player, teams should be wary of these players—especially if they are looking to sign them in free agency.
