The NBA's injury situation is comparable to the game. Sometimes things go back and forth. Sometimes they're fast, sometimes slow and sometimes, it goes in several directions at once. It looks like a mess until you see the pattern, the athleticism and the hard work.
A lot of the hard work is going on off the floor right now as medical staffs are fighting to get players back on the court, either to fight for a playoff spot or maybe for a career. We have chronic injuries, traumas and even a bit of the unmentionables this week in the 10 biggest injuries of the week.
This is not an exhaustive list, so while I see your comments each week, there's only so much time in the day, just like there's only so much time in the season to get some of these players back. Pau Gasol isn't back this week and neither is Derrick Rose, so once either of those players—or many of the others—gets closer to a comeback or gives me some real news to riff on, I'll share it.
In the meantime, here are the injuries around the NBA.
