A new basketball season unfortunately often means a new spate of injuries, and the worst NBA injuries of 2019 are proof that the game of basketball can be just as hard on athletes' bodies as more physical sports like football or hockey. Whether they are missing just a few games or the injury turns out to be season-ending, no player, team, or fan wants to see a competitor get hurt.

Some of the most important injuries in the 2019-20 season are those suffered by players at the end of last season. Players like Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson will miss significant time (and potentially the whole season) after getting injured in the NBA Finals. Meanwhile, Paul George is recovering from a late-season shoulder injury and will miss at least the first two weeks of the new year.

Other players suffered injuries less serious but just as important to keep an eye on, particularly preseason foot injuries suffered by players like Willie Cauley-Stein and Kyle Kuzma. Near the close of the preseason, Zion Williamson injured his knee and the NBA world was forced to wait for one of the most highly anticipated debuts in recent basketball history. 

Every couple days, new marquee players are added to the injury report, and this list will feature updates throughout the season with news of players going down and coming back. So check back throughout the year to see who's out and why as the season goes on. And check back to see when some of the injured players will return.
