Throughout the season, team health officials and executives internally feared a spate of soft-tissue injuries, such as hamstring strains. Earlier this week, Nets star guard James Harden exited Game 1 of the second round against the Milwaukee Bucks with a right hamstring aggravation. Similarly, Jazz point guard Mike Conley will miss Tuesday's Game 1 vs. the Clippers with a mild right hamstring strain. In the regular season, Harden missed more than a month and Conley missed six games in February and nine games in April and May with the same injuries.www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/31592404/data-shows-nba-injuries-condensed-season ...

State redshirt freshman safety repeated. “Coming from where I’m from, growing up, my dad used to always ask, ‘Are you hurt or are you injured?’ I was trying to figure it out myself.”If he was hurt, Martin could have popped back up, shaken it off and moved on to the next play. But Martin was injured and even as he slipped in and out of consciousness he didn’t realize how bad things were.Read more from Jonas Pope and the @newsandobserver ... See MoreSee Less
