NBA says injury rate this season down slightly from normal

The NBA said Thursday that the rate of players needing to miss games because of injuries is down from last season, and within the normal range for what the league has seen over the last five seasons. League data shows the player injury rate this season is down about 6%, even though several marquee players – including LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Kevin Durant, Joel Embiid, James Harden and most recently Jamal Murray – have dealt with injuries in recent weeks. Murray tore the ACL in his left knee this week.
