The NBA has issued a response to LeBron James’ criticism of the league.

On Wednesday afternoon, Clippers superstar Kawhi Leonard became the 8th NBA All-Star to go down with an injury during the playoffs.

Following the Kawhi news, LeBron went off on the NBA for forcing the players to play during a shortened season which he claims is to blame for the sudden rise in injuries among star players.

The NY Times Marc Stein received a statement from NBA spokesman Mike Bass who cited stats showing injuries have not gone up this season versus previous seasons.
