Andrew Bynum, Mike Miller and the 12 Most Important Injuries in the NBA
My kingdom for a foot ...

With an 82-game schedule compressed into a six-month period, injuries are inevitable in the NBA. 

Players today are bigger and faster than ever, which puts more stress on their joints and ligaments, leading to various injuries.

Here are the 12 injury situations most likely to impact the NBA season going forward.
