We have seen many injuries lately in the NBA, with the latest one being an apparent ACL injury that Kawhi suffered that will potentially cause him to miss the rest of the series against the Jazz. Several playoff teams have been unfortunate and had one or several of their key players injured, which raised a lot of attention around the league because that has become too frequent when you take everything into account.
LeBron James also missed a big part of the season, and on top of that, he wasn't completely healthy when the playoffs started, which was one reason the Lakers were eliminated in the first round. His teammate Anthony Davis was also struggling with injuries all season long, and LeBron went to his Twitter account, where he shared his frustration towards the NBA because they didn't listen to the players who said this would happen.
LeBron actually made a valid point by saying players didn't have enough time to recuperate after the NBA bubble. Especially those teams that made it far in the playoffs because they effectively had two months of rest before this season started, which isn't enough time for players to fully recover. That is a problem the NBA will need to address, especially if they want to take care of players and their health. Just like LeBron said, we've seen too many important players get injured, and the fans are the ones who have to watch the game without the best players, which lowers the quality of every playoff series.
