Each Monday during the NBA season, All Tar Heels will review the prior week for each Tar Heel in the NBA and preview the week ahead. This week, we are looking at games from February 15-21 and looking ahead to games from February 22-28.

Entering the final week of February, the 76ers (Tony Bradley and Danny Green) still sit atop the Eastern Conference standings, althought just a game and a half in front of the Nets.

As a reminder, the top 10 teams in each conference will have a shot at the playoffs rather than the standard eight per conference. The top six teams in each conference will be automatically in while teams seven through ten will engage in a play-in.

Given the four extra teams involved in the playoffs (20, up from 16), several more Tar Heels will likely have the chance to participate in the postseason.

As of now, in addition to Bradley and Green, five of the other 10 Tar Heels in the NBA are in playoff position:

  • Suns (Cam Johnson) - 4th in the Western Conference
  • Trail Blazers (Nassir Little) - 5th in the Western Conference
  • Knicks (Reggie Bullock and Theo Pinson) - 8th in the Eastern Conference
  • Bulls (Cob White) - 9th in the Eastern Conference

Additionally, Harrison Barnes and the Kings are currently in 11th place in the Western Conference, just a game and a half back from playoff position.

On the injury front, Cole Anthony, who had been dealing with a shoulder injury, is now on the shelf with a fractured rib until at least the All-Star Break.

Barnes, meanwhile, has missed Sacramento's last three games games with a left foot injury.

While not injured, Tony Bradley, Ed Davis, and Theo Pinson haven't received any playing time this week. 

There are currently 12 Tar Heels on NBA rosters, either full time or on a two-way contract.

Here’s a brief look at each Tar Heel in the NBA, what he did in the previous week of games, and a preview of the week ahead.
