Basketball is the most engaging game to take place in any community. It involves high-intensity physical activities that require changing direction continuously, along with high-load actions. To make this sport safer, it is essential to understand the causes of injuries during games. Furthermore, understanding the intrinsic, extrinsic, biomechanical, psychological, and physiological risk factors, it is also crucial to be aware of the incidence and prevalence of associated injuries. Such knowledge will facilitate the development of new prevention techniques and methods that will help prevent extensive sports injuries and make sports safer.
