NBA Power Rankings: OKC Thunder Red-Hot, Everyone Else on Red Alert
Alan Diaz/Associated Press

You'd think that a week marked by All-Star Game announcements would be a great one for the NBA's best teams. Those players voted in by the fans or chosen by the coaches would have every reason to celebrate, while those snubbed from the proceedings could take out their frustrations against unsuspecting opponents on the court.

And yet, the Oklahoma City Thunder's Kevin Durant-fueled run notwithstanding, the league's elite have all run into bumps in the road of some sort in late January—treacherous ones, in some cases. Injuries have begun to get the goats of the San Antonio Spurs, the Houston Rockets and the Los Angeles Clippers. Meanwhile, the Miami Heat, the Indiana Pacers and the Portland Trail Blazers have been dragged down a bit by the usual doldrums of the month.

These developments, while unfortunate in many cases, have injected a measure of intrigue into the Association's proceedings, which usually grow stale in the weeks leading up to All-Star weekend. Likewise, they've shaken up these here power rankings since last week's edition hit the Interwebz.

How, exactly? You'll just have to find out for yourself.
