Is 6 fouls in the NBA a foul-out?

When you get 6 fouls in any nba game you foul-out of the game and that player who received the 6 fouls has to sit on the bench for the remainder of the game. If there are only 5 players who are able to play and everybody else is either injured, inactive or has fouled-out, then if another player gets fouled-out then there would be only 4 players able to play but under the nba rule book there always has to be 5 players on the court so that last player who is supposed to foul-out has to stay in the game but other than that yes, 6 fouls in a nba game is a foul-out

How many fouls are allowed per basketball game?

A player only has up to five fouls from high school up to college, and the NBA allows six fouls before fouling out. A team; however, may foul as many times as they want, granted they have the players to do so. In my experience,only 5 fouls are allowed per basketball game. If you have 3, your coach may call a time-out and tell you to be careful. If you have 4 fouls, it is most likely that you will be taken out of the game unless there is not a large amount of time left in the game. 5 fouls are allowed in anything up to and including college. In the NBA, players are allowed 6. Five is the limit in international play.

How many fouls in a highschool basketball game to foul out?

unlike in the NBA that the maximum of fouls is six, in a high school game the maximum of fouls you can commit is five fouls. I recommend you not to foul to hard because the ref can expel you from the game if he thinks that you did it on purpose. believe me it have happened to me. good luck.
