We've officially reached the "garbage-time" portion of the 2012-13 NBA regular season. With just two weeks left on the schedule, teams up and down the standings have taken to sitting their best players.
For different reasons, of course. Those at the top, like the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs, are keen to rest their superstars before embarking on deep, grueling playoff runs. Those at the bottom, meanwhile, are playing up injuries in order to lose games and, in turn, improve their chances of coming up aces in the NBA draft lottery.
All of which makes grading and ranking the NBA's top superstars more of a chore than usual. Now, in addition to evaluating the best of the best, it's incumbent upon yours truly to keep track of who's sitting when and whether those DNPs should keep a given guy off this list.
Don't cry for me, though, Argentina. Instead, read on to see which players were healthy enough—and whose teams still needed them to compete—to stick among the top 10.
