5 Playoff Teams in Real Danger of Missing Postseason in 2014-15

The big moves of the 2014 offseason certainly changed the landscape of the league, and to expect the playoff picture for this season to remain unchanged after everything that's happened would probably be foolish.

You can safely pencil in at least one non-playoff team last year in, at the least. With LeBron James back in Cleveland and Kevin Love joining him soon enough, the Cavaliers are an instant favorite in the Eastern Conference. That means at least one team has to fall. 

That wasn't the only big change, even though you have to like the Miami Heat's chances a lot less without LeBron. The Indiana Pacers lost Paul George to a gruesome leg injury and Lance Stephenson to free agency. The Brooklyn Nets lost Paul Pierce. The Houston Rockets waved goodbye to Chandler Parsons, Jeremy Lin and Omer Asik.

And for the teams that just stayed put? There are plenty of up-and-coming teams nipping at the heels of last year's playoff squads.

Let's take a look at five teams that are in danger of missing the 2014-15 postseason.
