With the 2020-21 NBA regular season in its final week of action, all attention is going to begin shifting to this year’s playoffs and the race to see who will be crowned this year’s NBA champions! However, injuries have been a huge part of this season and they will continue to be storylines heading into the playoffs.
Not every playoff bound team is healthy right now, which could definitely shift things not only in each series, but in each conference as a whole as well.
The Los Angeles Lakers, the defending NBA champions, have been dealing with injuries all season long that have dropped them down in the standings and last year’s Eastern Conference champions, the Miami Heat, have struggled all season long with injuries as well.
Which teams are able to stay healthy and which teams aren’t could very well help decide this year’s NBA Finals, but there are plenty of stars who are on the mend and getting ready for their team’s potential championship run.
With that said, let’s take a look at four injured NBA stars who need to get healthy as soon as possible before the playoffs begin next week.
