- Rotoworld is used as the primary guide for player injuries, though other websites lists and news articles may be used as a guide when checking the severity of player injuries.
- During the real-life NBA regular season a player is considered injured at D5 when their expected recovery time is 6 weeks or more from the start of their injury.
- If a player's recovery time exceeds 6 weeks but they were not added to the injury list, they will be added to the injury list until healed.
- "Out indefinitely" players are assessed based on other websites reports of an injury or not included on the injury list until a more conclusive analysis is given.
- Until the regular season progresses to within six weeks of the Playoffs, "Out for season" injuries will be considered an automatic entry onto the Injury List.
- After there are six weeks left at the end of the regular season injuries listed as "Out for Season" will be checked for their severity, and if in doubt ignored, because "Out for season" will not necessarily mean an injury is severe enough to warrant being added to the injury list at this time.
- Players injured during the Playoffs will also have the severity of their injuries checked and if the recovery time of a player's injury would usually require them to miss 6 weeks of play they will be added to the injury list.
- When a player's real-life team is eliminated from competition and they opt for an end of season surgery they will not be added to the injury list at D5 unless, when the next season rolls around, they are still injured from the surgery.
- Teams with enough injuries to take their roster below 10 uninjured players must sign a player to bring the number back to 10 or higher. If a team's roster then exceeds 15 players once players return from injury, the team must cut a player to remain under the 15 player roster limit.
- Players are returned to active roster positions when they become considered as healed.
