Andrew Bynum of the Los Angeles Lakers is no longer the only one suffering from a knee injury out of both playoff teams. During last night's game 6 of the playoffs between the Lakers and Celtics, Boston's center, Kendrick Perkins, had to leave the game after just five minutes into the first quarter. It has since come out that he now suffers from a sprained knee. We must hope that he waits long enough for his full recovery before starting to play again and that he does not experience chronic pain for the rest of his career.

Injuries are definitely part of the game, and not just for basketball players. I've heard about at least a dozen World Cup soccer players who've been sidelined due to knee, hip, or ankle problems.
According to this 2006 study
about the epidemiology of athletic knee injuries, soccer and skiing are the most dangerous activities for your knees.
