NBA Handicapping: Schedule takes it toll on players league wide

Article on the wear and tear NBA players took during the first half of the season. Charlotte head coach Monty Williams pointed out that a lot of players started the season out of shape because they weren't expecting to play until at least January – hence all of the injuries.

“It’s a lot, there’s no hiding that 66 games in some 120 odd days, it’s a lot,’’ Wade said. “It’s not something we want to go through again. It’s a lot, but we have to do what we got to do.’’

“I just think guys exhaled when the union disbanded during the lockout and guys figured we wouldn’t play until January,’’ Hornets Coach Monty Williams said. “But I think it caught a lot of guys off guard, and I think that’s why you see so many hamstrings, sore foot and back issues. Guys were not in shape.’’
