A player only has up to five fouls from high school up to college, and the NBA allows six fouls before fouling out. A team; however, may foul as many times as they want, granted they have the players to do so.

In my experience,only 5 fouls are allowed per basketball game. If you have 3, your coach may call a time-out and tell you to be careful. If you have 4 fouls, it is most likely that you will be taken out of the game unless there is not a large amount of time left in the game.

5 fouls are allowed in anything up to and including college. In the NBA, players are allowed 6. Five is the limit in international play.

You can substitute freely in basketball. As many players as there are on the bench, that's how many substitutes there are. Players may be taken out of a game and then put back into a game. There is no limit to the amount of times a player can be taken out and put into a game. The only limitation to substituting is that you may not put a player in that has exceed the number of personal fouls allowed in the league. Once a player exceeds that number, they are disqualified and not allowed to play for the rest of the game.
