In brief: A Broken Heart

Actually, there are many possible injuries one could encounter in basketball.
Anything from a concussion to a badly broken ankle. By far and away the most common injury (as indicated by submitted drg codes) is a sprained ankle. This can be quite painful and is best treated/prevented by use of s stirrup type ankle brace. Next nba game you see, look how many players have these braces on!
