20-25% are white, whether it be American or from another country. The previous answer in on the low side. I believe the percentage is between 33% to 40% -- I have not done a c…omplete count of all NBA Rosters, but I am quite sure it is at least 33% (1 in 3 players). The percentage has increased a lot in the last few years because of the Europe, Russian, Argentinian and Australian players now in the NBA.
In 2013, the percentage of African-American players in the NBA was 76.3. The figure has been as high as 82 percent in some seasons.
The 1950-51 season is when African Americans first played in the NBA. The first African American to be drafted by an NBA team was Chuck Cooper by the Boston Celtics. The first… African American to play in an NBA game was Earl Lloyd of the Washington Capitols.

The NBA is about 90% black so to name all the black NBA players would be nearly impossible.
100%. Everyone gets hurt sometime, and since the question didn't specify a time frame then the only logical answer is 100%.
