While injuries are inescapable, it is always unfortunate when training staffs become more important than coaching staffs.
In a perfect world, championships and playoff spots would not be contingent upon the most healthy teams, but rather the most talented. Unfortunately that isn't realistic, as injuries drastically affect every game.
The NBA season is a quarter of the way done, which means that reasonable conclusions can be drawn about the association. While those assumptions might appear intelligent now, the league is always changing.
The return of injured players will change the league's landscape, which increases the importance of training staffs across the NBA. Many teams will be directly affected by this season's results, and their future may be defined by whether or not their stars can return to the level they once were before they were injured.
