In brief: Why do you ask?
Why are you asking about playing sports? I believe its certainly healthy to play basketball and other sports unless you have a medical problem or orthopedic problem that causes pain or makes you worse.
You might want to ask a question regarding if you have a particular problem which you might be concerned about.
