During the 2012-13 season, it seemed as if knee injuries were all the rage. From Rajon Rondo, Danilo Gallinari and Russell Westbrook to even a rehabbing Derrick Rose, knee ligaments took a pounding. That trend has continued into this campaign, with the early-season injuries to Rose (again) and Marc Gasol.

However, a rash of hand fractures has recently laid low some big names, including J.J. Redick, Paul Pierce and Anthony Davis.

While Davis' and Pierce's absences might have the biggest impact on their respective teams, it's Redick's injury that could have the biggest impact careerwise.
