News just broke Russell Westbrook has had surgery on his knee. Projected return is post-All Star Break.
This just adds onto this list of star players currently with injuries. The numbers of guys that have gone down seems to have spiked this year in particular..
Injuries this season: Rose, Kobe, Westbrook, Marc Gasol, Rondo (last year) and Brook Lopez. Terrible.— NBA Legion (@MySportsLegion) December 27, 2013
The absence of major injuries to LeBron James and Kevin Durant to date never ceases to amaze.— RealGM (@RealGM) December 27, 2013
Mike Prada brings up an interesting discussion point:
Wonder how many injuries to top stars it’ll take for Adam Silver to consider shortening the season.— Mike Prada (@MikePradaSBN) December 27, 2013
Do you guys think shortening the season will decrease these types of injuries? Or is the length of the season somewhat irrelevant?
