They're the same meaning.

I don't know if it can be done generally, but that specific Klingon
Monopoly card is identifying damage to the player's forces with injury to
the player.

Some of the game cards identify the player with his/her forces (troops and
buildings). When it says "you" are damaged/injured, it's talking about the
players' forces.

The word {rIQ} appears on another card (where its meaning is about injured
warriors):

{jorwI'mey ghaymo' qarDaSnganpu', Hegh SuvwI'pu'lI' law' 'ej rIQ
SuvwI'pu'lI' law'}
"Suffer major losses after Cardassian bombing campaign."
