Global NBA enthusiasts have observed a surge in injuries, sparking comparisons between the 90s era and the present. This trend significantly influences season matchups.

Over the years, some teams have adopted load management strategies to prevent issues in the playoffs. However, this has occasionally frustrated fans who expect to see their favorite players in action.

Below is a list of the most prevalent injuries in the NBA since 2010:
