Every team that played into the conference finals in 2020 has been decimated
by injuries and had a sub-par season in 2021. Lakers, Nuggets, Heat, Celtics... significant injuries affecting every one of their seasons. Multiple cases that could be career-altering.
Don’t be surprised to see more significant injuries as other teams and players start to near that same threshold of games over time. Only having a couple months of an offseason may have actually been the most unsafe part of the covid seasons.
