The NBA has turned into a league of mysterious injuries. So far this season, Eric Gordon, Danny Granger, John Wall and Andrew Bynum haven’t played a minute because of knee ailments that were aggravated or failed to be rehabbed over the summer.
Could more have been done to improve the players’ health before training camp? One team executive believes the NBA should consider rules that would enable franchises to have more oversight on players’ training methods during the offseason.
In other words, if something were to go wrong for the player while he trained outside the team’s supervision, then the team could have the right to penalize the player financially.
It is going to be a difficult issue to address with players because there is such a variety of subjective opinion. Smith wasn’t certain what kind of language could be negotiated into the collective bargaining agreement.
