ACL tears are a common injury for basketball players of all levels, from recreational to collegiate and even professional level athletes. In fact, one of the major injuries that recently hit the headlines is rookie Ricky Rubio’s ACL tear. Experts are saying that he’ll probably be out the rest of the season for the Minnesota Timberwolves, and will be unable to play for Spain during the 2012 Olympics. As you can see, ACL tears can interfere with your ability to participate in the sport you love.
Wearing an ACL knee brace can help prevent ACL tears and keep you in the game. The best basketball knee brace is the DonJoy Playmaker Knee Brace. It helps stabilize the area around the knee joint to prevent the leg from moving unnaturally in ways that will stretch your ACL. The DonJoy Playmaker is really great for basketball because of its breathable material that keeps the leg cool and dry. It’s also designed so that it won’t get in your way while you’re playing defense or making layups, but still offers great protection against ACL injuries.
