I am sure the idea is not just to avoid injury in a meaningless game, but to reduce to the cumulative wear and tear of a long season on their most important players. It is a long season if a team gets into the playoffs, and just that much longer if they start 4 weeks earlier.
It will be even worse if the league gets their 18 game season.
