Article Summary:

Chicago Bulls 2021-22 record: 9-4 Previous ranking: 9

Chicago is going to have to figure out how to adjust to playing without center Nikola Vucevic, who tested positive for COVID-19 last week, but the Bulls continued their hot start by winning three of four games last week. Dallas Mavericks 2021-22 record: 8-4 Previous ranking: 6

Dallas is tied for the West’s third-best record despite ranking ninth in the conference in point differential. Los Angeles Lakers 2021-22 record: 8-6 Previous ranking: 15

Could L.A. be turning a corner? After Sunday’s 114-106 win over the San Antonio Spurs, the Lakers are 3-3 without LeBron James since he was sidelined by an abdomen strain, and a source close to the 19-year veteran told ESPN that James’ return will be “Soon.” In the meantime, the rest of the Lakers are getting healthier, as Wayne Ellington and Talen Horton-Tucker scored 15 and 17 points, respectively, against the Spurs. Charlotte Hornets 2021-22 record: 8-7 Previous ranking: 17
