Default Fake Injuries

How often do teams claim their players have injuries, that are.........non-existant? I only ask this question because that's what happened with Steve Francis. Apparently, he had tendinitis for a few months. As soon as Jamal Crawford went down, he mysteriously reappeared........in full health. Now, how often do you guys think this kind of thing happens? Any examples?

I said the same thing about Tmac and then Yao goes down and then all of sudden Tmac finds this witch doctor. He was out for about 7 games and then Yao gets injured. Tmac then claimed he found a new doctor and carried the Rockets. Last year Tmac was dealing with a lot of personal issues so maybe he was never injured. JVG kept telling Tmac to have fun when he was playing, I suspected he felt Tmac was just losing love for the game. Or maybe he really was injured and got lucky.

The New York Knicks could have a soap opera.

The backcourt could be those soap opera women who go around fighting for the same men and lying and backstabbing one another all day.

I know for a fact when they're about to trade players they make up injuries as an excuse to keep trade rumors from swirling (i.e. Allen Iverson)

I thought it was clear that he didn't have an injury issue
he came back but they just didn't play him
so he went home and was just waiting for the buy out

I mean, it was clear he didn't had an injury after his first come back

I noticed this usually happens right before a trade. For an in-game incident:


During a Miami Heat game, Wade was laying on the floor, supposedly injured his leg or whatever. When Miami steals the ball, Wade all of a sudden gets up, gets the pass, and scores like he is perfectly fine.

Stromile Swift last season who had to sit out a couple of games due to 'Injury to eye'/ That was the most laughable excuse I had ever heard of.

It happens alot at the end of the year for losing teams to develop their young players.

Pulling a muscle is one thing, but 15 days?
