The list of most anticipated injury returns in NBA history includes a collection of Hall of Fame players as well as one who might've been if not for his knees.
As we wait in anticipation for the return of All-Stars like Derrick Rose, Tony Parker and Andrew Bynum, this list includes a collection of stars who similarly missed significant portions of the year due to injury.
This list focuses exclusively on former players who returned from significant injuries while also being named to the All-Star team multiple times in their career.
It only includes those who were sidelined for a range of 30-70 games, before eventually returning to close out the season.
Thus, it does not include Hall of Famers like David Robinson, for example, who missed nearly all of the 1996-97 campaign before returning from injury to begin the following season.
