19. Chris Paul
Injury: Torn Meniscus
Accolades After Injury: 2x All-Star, 2x All-NBA 1st Team
With speed and athleticism at his size, Chris Paul was drawing Isiah Thomas comparisons. But a nagging knee injury early in his career questioned those comparisons. He eventually returned to form, but suffered a torn meniscus in his right knee in 2010. Bum knee and all, Paul is arguably the best point guard in the game today. Plus he made the Clippers relevant and that is no easy feat.
