The end of February brings with it the beginning of the NBA's regular-season stretch run.
The league's roster tinkering is all but done. Per NBA rules, any player signed after March 1 is ineligible for postseason play.
That doesn't mean you won't see sad-sack squads like the Philadelphia 76ers and Los Angeles Lakers bring in live bodies for late-season auditions. Nor does it preclude short-handed playoff hopefuls like the Los Angeles Clippers and Chicago Bulls from bringing in helping hands to bridge the gap between now and mid-April.
By and large, though, the Association's 30 teams are what they are, injuries and otherwise.
That doesn't guarantee that ranking them all from week to week, based on recent performance and available personnel, will be any more straightforward than usual. A cursory comparison of last week's power rankings to this week's edition should make that much clear.
