The 2013 NBA playoffs haven't been quite as exciting as most expected at the outset. Of the 19 games played thus far, 13 have been decided by double digits, including all seven games involving the Miami Heat, Indiana Pacers and San Antonio Spurs.

Not that there hasn't been plenty of cause for interest and intrigue otherwise, especially now that Russell Westbrook is bound for the first injury-related hiatus of his entire basketball life. His knee surgery will undoubtedly put a damper on the Oklahoma City Thunder's title hopes and shake up the playoff picture out West for however long his recovery lasts.

As you can imagine, then, there has been some substantial reshuffling of this year's postseason participants in relation to last week's power rankings.

So where do all 16 teams stand now? And what effect does Russ' bit of bad news figure to have in the grand scheme? Don't let me spoil it for you. Just read on to find out!
