There is nothing more disappointing than getting a nice, shiny, new free agent player only to have him go down with an injury before the season starts. Especially if that player is being counted on to fill an important role.

Luckily, most of them are not serious injuries at this point. Here are eight players who are expected to be either starters or significant role players but are a little dinged up at the moment.
