Player Value Rankings (PVR)

We ranked the NBA's players from 1 (the best) to 348 based on our
projections of their statistical production this season. The
categories considered were points, rebounds, assists, steals,
blocked shots, field goal percentage, free throws made and
three-pointers made. We also took into account each player's
stats as well as his role on his team, his prospects for
improving or declining, his injury history and his current
physical condition. Using these criteria, we determined each
player's value ranking, or PVR, which appears next to his name in
his team's projected lineup.
