Now around midway through the NBA preseason, the 2013-14 rookies have just gotten their first taste of live pro action.
And that's enough for us.
With some rookies getting in up to four games already, it's time to start dishing out grades and picking apart early performances.
The rookies who've been left out are either on the shelf with an injury (Nerlens Noel, Otto Porter, C.J. McCollum) or haven't been given a fair shot to earn a grade yet (Sergey Karasev, Solomon Hill, Mason Plumlee).
The grades are based on each rookie's performance relative to their opportunity. And in certain cases, summer league factored in.
