Since our last rankings, Chris Paul has not played a game, Rajon Rondo was declared out for the season after a torn ACL and Jose Calderon changed jerseys. A crazy couple of weeks for point guards leads to a new number one in the rankings:

Rank Prev Player Pts Ast Reb Stl To DRtg Win Shares TPGR Change
1 5 Tony Parker 23.2 9.5 3.3 1.0 3.8 101 0.220 32.99 +4
It took injuries to Paul and Rondo, but Parker finally grabs the top spot.
2 NA Ty Lawson 20.4 7.4 2.8 2.8 2.4 99 0.094 28.91 +9
Nuggets have won six straight and Lawson is playing well, especially on defense.
3 3 Stephen Curry 25.3 5.7 2.0 1.3 2.0 111 0.168 26.98 None
Every Warriors game is a mix of excitement and fear that Curry’s ankles will shatter.
4 2 Russell Westbrook 20.0 8.0 5.5 1.5 4.2 107 0.177 25.47 -2
The Thunder no longer seem bullet-proof, but Westbrook is maintaining his high level of play.
5 NA Kyrie Irving 28.3 4.0 3.3 1.8 2.7 111 0.146 24.98 +6
Only four assists a game is not ideal, but nearly 30 ppg makes up for it.
6 NA Goran Dragic 15.1 8.7 3.0 1.3 2.1 110 0.117 24.92 +5
Dragic’s season has been a bit of a roller coaster, but he is up again for the Suns and intirim head coach Lindsey Hunter.
7 NA Brandon Jennings 19.7 7.3 2.3 1.0 2.3 113 0.113 23.84 +4
As trade rumors swirl, Jennings is proving his worth.
8 10 Deron Williams 15.9 8.1 3.7 0.9 3.0 109 0.149 23.42 +2
Williams and the Nets are playing well, but the feeling is that both could be doing better.
9 4 Jrue Holiday 19.8 8.2 4.2 1.8 5.5 100 0.086 23.19 -5
Holiday is doing it all for the Sixers, but his five and a half turnovers a game show it may be too much.
10 NA Mike Conley 13.5 3.8 1.7 2.3 1.3 95 0.146 21.95 +1
13 points and under four assists do not make a top ten pg. Allowing under a point per possession on defense does.
