It depends. If you play rough, or too long, you could tear a hamstring, ACL, MCL, labrum, a tendon in your fingers. There are numerous injuries. Don't be discouraged though, I've played for many years and never been injured. Basketball is a lot safer than football. NBA players typically last a while and don't get injured. I highly suggest you play the sport.
