2020-21 NBA Projections

With the season fast approaching, we have run projections for the upcoming season using the multiyear, predictive version of our Crafted Plus Minus.

Each team has a projected record, offensive rating, defensive rating and net rating for the coming season as well as a wins estimate (playoffWins) based upon their fully healthy projected ~10 man playoff rotation. The extraWins column is the difference between a team's fully healthy projection and their default projection.

Each team name is linked to that team's individual projection page which will show you their player's projected offensive and defensive Crafted Plus-Minus, as well as how we expect their rotation to shake out.
