    WHAT ARE THE MOST COMMON WRIST INJURIES IN BASKETBALL?

    The most common wrist injury in basketball is sprains. Basketball players are at high risk of wrist sprains due to dribbling to passing to catching on the court. Despite sprains being the most common injury, other wrist and hand injuries include:

    • Wrist Fractures: A fracture may be a complete break or a partial break of a bone in the wrist. These can occur from falling.
    • Hand or Finger Fractures: These tiny bones can break easily when playing basketball. These can occur when a player goes to catch the ball. 
    • Mild Jammed Finger: Jammed fingers can occur easily on the court and usually doesn't require too much attention. If it is a severe jam it might mean the finger or hand could be fractured. 

    Always seek medical attention if you think you have done damage when playing basketball. To prevent wrist injuries, strengthen your tendons by wrist exercises. Start by building your shoulders, as this provides stability all the way to your fingers.
