Team Report Card Grades for Every NBA Team Entering Season's Midway Point
Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

Let's all stop and rejoice for the players who are still healthy.

LeBron James hasn't bowed out of the lineup for the Miami Heat. The Oklahoma City Thunder lost Russell Westbrook, but Kevin Durant is playing out of his mind right now. Paul George and the Indiana Pacers are still healthy.

So too are the San Antonio Spurs, though I'm not even sure it would matter if there were a boatload of major injuries. Gregg Popovich could probably coach me, my mother, my dog, Chris Smith and Kawhi Leonard into the postseason.

And no, my dog is not Air Bud.

Now quickly, everyone go out and knock on some wood. We don't want all the players I've mentioned to get injured in the next few days.

Whether your team is reeling from the effects of that pesky little injury imp or doing quite well with a full lineup, it's starting to figure out exactly where it sits in either the Eastern Conference or Western Conference. Some squads are moving up and down in rapid fashion, but all have established identities at this stage of the season.

But how do those compare to the expectations?

We're just about halfway through the season, so it's time to pull out those red pens once more.

Let's play teacher.
