Brandon Bass is a durable NBA big. Though the 6'8", 250-pound forward missed seven games last season with a knee injury, Bass has been able to avoid serious injuries throughout his career.
But playing under the basket and getting battered by opposing big men hurts his chances of being healthy for the entire season.
Bass could miss around five games this season as a result of some sort of minor injury or injuries—nothing too concerning.
A sprained ankle, a sore knee—those things come with the territory of being an NBA power forward.
Bass is a bruiser, though. He'll put his nose to the grindstone and he definitely won't shy away from contact.
Thirty percent accounts for Bass's durability while also considering his role as an NBA big who will be playing a lot of minutes for the Celtics this season—thus, he will endure a lot of wear and tear.
