Due in large part to injuries, the Milwaukee Bucks haven't kicked off the 2013-14 campaign with the bang that they had hoped to.
However, considering the lack of personnel and talent, the team has made the most of the early season schedule and has, for the most part, remained relatively competitive.
The team's 2-12 record—second-worst in the NBA—certainly speaks for itself. However, as for the players, there have been bright spots along with some disappointing starts. And while handing out grades is never an easy task, it almost always helps identify the weaknesses.
Keep in mind, these are only initial rankings and there's a lot of basketball left.
Hopefully, for the sake of Bucks fans, most key players will see an improvement in their grade by season's end.
