Definition – What is Rebound Rate?

Rebound rate is a metric that helps gauge a player’s effectiveness of gaining possession of the ball after a missed shot. Rebound rate takes into account both offensive and defensive rebounds, while offensive rebound percentage and defensive rebound percentage only take into account rebound situations on their respective sides of the court.

Formula – How to calculate Rebound Rate

(100 x Rebounds x Team Minutes Played) ÷ (Player Minutes Played x (Team Total Rebounds + Opposing Team Total Rebounds))


A player has 5 rebounds over 41 minutes, in a game where the team has 39 total rebounds and 240 total player minutes and the opposing team has 37 rebounds.

Rebound Rate = (100 x 5 x 48) ÷ (41 x (39 + 37))

Rebound Rate = 24,000 ÷ (41 x 76)

Rebound Rate = 24,000 ÷ 3,116

Rebound Rate = 7.70

Therefore, the player’s rebound rate would be 7.70, or 7.70% of total rebounds.
