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.
