If there’s one guarantee in the NBA, it’s that health is bound to impact your roster at some point during the season.
Entering 2013-14, there are a number of prominent injuries to highlight. Derrick Rose, Kevin Love and Kobe Bryant have created some of the juiciest storylines, but their respective squads aren’t the only ones crossing their fingers. Nagging injuries and poor bounce-back performances could mean the difference between making the playoffs and landing in the lottery.
Nobody wants to see players get hurt, but it happens. Players go down, they miss time and their teams have to find a way to compensate.
The hope is that they always get back up, and that’s what all 30 teams are hoping as 2013-14 quickly approaches.
