NBA teams travel approximately 60,000 miles in a season, constantly interrupting circadian rhythms, and over the past few years training staffs have searched for ways to educate themselves and their players about sleep. Some players wear sleep trackers around their wrists, others sleep masks. A few use custom pillows. Certain strength coaches conduct surveys every morning, asking guys how many hours they slept and how soundly. But a lot of the information is unreliable. Pistons power forward Blake Griffin wore a sleep-tracking wristband to bed last season, in hopes of gauging his rest. “There were too many nights I got a good rating even though I was up at 5,” Griffin said. He wants to participate in a sleep study at UCLA.
