Throughout the course of the 2013-14 season, HoopsHabit will be presenting NBA rookie rankings, letting you see who has the best shot at winning the Rookie of the Year Award at season’s end.

It was a very difficult week for the rookies of the NBA. Injuries and inconsistent play, both of which have plagued the NBA Rookie Rankings for most of the year, have began to resurface for some of the top rookies in the league. Unfortunate but that’s the nature of the game.
