Our Director of Biomechanics provides a breakdown of @luka7doncic as the #NBAdraft approaches. In addition to possessing great positional size and very competitive lateral acceleration, Luka Doncic demonstrates elite physical qualities associated with braking/change of direction.
Building off our initial Cluster study, we're looking at different ways to merge on-court data with our assessment data. Here we're looking at how rookies from various clusters contribute to their team's success in their first season. 📈🏀
How can youth sports better the health of it’s players? @OTLonESPN
This was filthy from @dariusgarland22 last night!
Darius ranks 96th percentile in the P3 NBA database for eccentric force production - a trait closely linked to change of direction performance. 🔬📈🏀
He missed 34 games, and yet still led Major League first basemen in
🌟 Defensive runs saved (13)
🌟 Ultimate zone rating (6.6)
and led AL first basemen in
🌟 Total chances (1,121)
🌟 Putouts (1,023)
🌟 Assists (90)
That’s Oly, the @RawlingsSports 2019 Gold Glove Award winner.
- 1st player in @NBAHistory to record at least 29 PTS, 15 AST, 13 REB in back-to-back games.
- Youngest in NBA History to record consecutive 25-point triple-doubles.
- 2nd player in @dallasmavs franchise history with back-to-back 15-AST games, joining Jason Kidd.
I’ve been working on an analysis of NBA injuries and hand/wrist fractures are probably the least significant injuries that require surgery. On average athletes return with no change in PER or games played. Contrast to Achilles rupture (probably the worst). Get well soon Steph! https://twitter.com/DrRobertKlapper/status/1190361648155938816
Luka looked up to LeBron growing up.
What a moment this must have been 🤝
The only way a game like that could end. LeBron dapping Luka and saying “you’re a bad motherfu***r”

.@ZachLaVine - the best single leg jumper we have ever worked with! ⚡️⚡️
More targeted late-stage rehab resulted in improved (but still imperfect) mechanics across the knee. Fortunately, this athlete has remained injury free for the past few seasons.
Visualization pertaining to an returning from left ACL rupture.
In their first assessment post-injury, a number of variables linked to potential risk at the knee continued to exhibit considerable risk (despite being blinded to the athlete’s injury history).
While we are still exploring the intersection between Biomechanics and ML, we are using some of these critical markers from our initial results to monitor our athletes in-house during training and return to play periods.
Starting w a larger collection of variables (temporal, kinematic, etc.), ML techniques help cull through to identify critical drivers of potential risk in a multivariate setting with notable class imbalance (analyzing a series of variables rather than a single variable at time).
Thread pulling from P3 founder - Marcus Elliott's - presentation at @harvardmed last week centered around P3's efforts to develop ML models that prospectively identify the risk of traumatic knee injury in NBA athletes.
Flexion - too much or too little during high-demand movements can have negative performance and injury implications for NBA players.
Jump diversity is 🔑
