COMMON BASKETBALL INJURIES - KNEE
The running and jumping involved in a game of basketball – especially when played on hard outdoor surfaces like concrete and asphalt – can lead to tendinitis in the knees. Patellar tendinitis – inflammation of the band of tissue that connects the kneecap (patella) to the shin – is particularly common among basketball players, and is often referred to as “jumper’s knee.” As with other forms of mild tendinitis, this can usually be treated with rest and over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medication.

COMMON BASKETBALL INJURIES - SHOULDER
Basketball involves a lot of motions with arms extended over the head – shooting jump shots, attempting to block said shots, reaching and positioning for rebounds, hanging on the rim after a dunk... actually, I have no experience with that last one. Over time, those activities can cause the tendons in the shoulder joint to become irritated and inflamed, which is the textbook definition of tendinitis.
