Injuries are a part of every NBA season.

But man, doesn't it seem like they've really screwed over a bunch of teams this year?

Whether it's stifling a potential playoff run or scuttling a franchise's chance at winning anything at all, star ailments have been particularly devastating in 2012-13.

On this episode of Basketball by Association, Bleacher Report's NBA lead writer Jimmy Spencer joins assistant editors Ethan Norof and Joel C. Cordes to lament lost seasons and hurdles caused by hurt.

We tried to mention as many of the "big" injuries as possible, but there were so many to note, that even somebody like Dirk Nowitzki slipped by.

Who else did we miss?  Which woes have really sunk your favorite team?
