The Miami Heat are coasting through the 2013 playoffs and it’s not just a testament to how good they are; they’ve also been very serendipitous with the best players from opposing teams have gotten hurt left and right. And considering that were are the tail end of the NBA awards season where players, coaches, and managers alike are awarded trophies for their achievement, it is only fitting that we—in awards season fashion—celebrate those who are not currently with us on the court. Here are five players who have succumbed to the injury bug, hereby dubbed the 2013 All-Injury team. PG – Derrick Rose, Chicago Bulls Injury: ACL tear The way in which Derrick Rose sustained his injury last year was crushing, nursing his injury on the court in fetal position.

The Chicago Bulls are getting ready to play the Miami Heat tonight without Derrick Rose. Rose has not played a single game this season. He is currently rehabbing from a torn knee ligament he sustained last year in the playoffs. Even though Rose has not gone to work for his company he is still getting paid.

For the last month or so the NBA has been held hostage by one question--will Derrick Rose return? After receiving clearance he never said never. Throughout the playoffs he hinted at the possibility of a return practically every game. Since a player of his caliber could change the landscape of the postseason the question had to be continually asked--is Derrick Rose going to play...
Wouldn’t it be cool if Derrick Rose seeing his team looking defeated and ready to surrender, took off his Brooks Brothers suit and went into battle with them?
The Captain going down with the ship so to speak? I doubt he could hurt his knee in one game right? It would be symbolic that he is back and next season he will be a forced to be reckoned with.
Yeah, that isn’t happening...

A video poem dedicated to the 2012-13 whereabouts of Bulls star, Derrick Rose:
It seems at times, and some may say most of the time, the media over-hypes stories, and the Derrick Rose “should he have played or not play?” has seemingly been one of those stories.

Washington Wizards rookie Bradley Beal, when he is not being...
