Basketball is a popular team sport played all over the world by male and female players participating in various competitions. As the game evolves across competitions, there are new challenges and opportunities being faced by teams. In this way, basketball organisations are constantly seeking competitive advantages that optimise the health, recovery, and performance of players through various practices.

The growing body of basketball research provides an essential evidence base for basketball organisations to draw upon when implementing different practices. As such, it is important that sound basketball research with strong practical translation is produced on topics relevant to player health, recovery, and performance. In this regard, examination of coaching, training, testing, monitoring, nutrition, recovery, injury prevention, psychological, performance analysis, and sleep strategies, as well as technological innovations, that can improve the existing understanding and practices in basketball would prove advantageous for basketball coaches, high-performance staff, and players alike.

Therefore, the aim of this Research Topic is to provide in-depth knowledge on various aspects in basketball applied to players and teams of both sexes and across different age groups, including but not limited to the following:
• Coaching strategies
• Development of strength and conditioning programs
• Fatigue monitoring and assessment
• Game performance assessment (e.g. game-related statistics)
• Monitoring of training and game demands
• Assessment of fitness attributes
• Recovery strategies
• Monitoring of sleep and sleep-related interventions
• Technological innovations
• Nutritional aids and practices
• Injury statistics and injury prevention strategies
Meta-analyses, reviews, perspectives, opinion articles, commentaries, and original work will be considered for publication.

Keywords: Assessment, Decision-making, Fatigue, Fitness, Game-related statistics, Gender difference, Injuries, Monitoring, Nutrition, Performance analysis, Profiling, Sleep, Training strategies, Workloads
