The NBA has informed teams that they are no longer allowed to report injuries in general terms.

These terms include conditioning, reconditioning, soreness and fatigue, according to Shams Charania.

The league also told teams that they must use a specific reason and/or body part.

The NBA sent a memo to teams detailing the changes to reporting injuries.

“If a player has been diagnosed with a fracture of any type, the team’s public injury report must disclose the injury even if the player is certain to play in the team’s next game,” according to the memo.
