Injuries are normal for people who engage in sports that entail frequent use of the arms and legs. Stretching is a good way to avoid muscle strains and tendonitis, something that athletes would dread since it would mean they would have to take therapy for it and rest for weeks to a month.
The worst part of suffering these injuries would be on the preparation stages where training is something that athletes would usually undergo. Another hard point would be that of being in the middle of the actual competition where they would have to watch helplessly in the sidelines since they would be no help if they were to force the issue. Forcing the issue as well would probably aggravate the injury and keep them from playing in the future.
Usual parts of the body that may be affected would be the knees, shoulders and the torsos. Physical Therapy is where they would probably land since strengthening the muscles is the only recourse they can do. Given a couple of weeks, they should be able to start and train again, this time with caution to avoid recurring injuries of the same nature.
