Where Things Stand

Now that every team has played over half their schedule, it's time to put out some lists of where things stand, telling you everything you need to know about what will happen to your team come January: the playoff race, how far away each team could be from mathematical elimination form the playoffs, the earliest any team could potentially clinch a playoff birth, and those all-important draft standings.

These lists will be updated on Fridays, Mondays and Tuesdays to reflect the previous day's action. Make sure to keep checking back so you know whether to expect to stay positive for the post-season or whether you should start researching draft prospects now.
