There's something going in the NBA and they just aren't telling us. Nikola makes what the 8th-10th player to be out for a long period of time with injuries, either these players condition isn't that great or the injury bug is really multiplying.

Or maybe the game has evolved to the point where athletes must push their bodies like no one did in the past. Higher, faster, more aggressive and/or explosive?

You may be on to something there. The game has evolve to where the style of play demands that the offense must play at a more accelerated pace vs years prior.

In this case and what most people missed is that Nikola actually clipped another players ankle as he was about to plant causing the injury.
