Power Ranking Los Angeles Lakers Players Heading into Final Month of Season

The end of the 2014-15 NBA season can't come soon enough for fans of the Los Angeles Lakers, but the team —to its credit—is still putting forth maximum effort on a nightly basis.

As a matter of fact, all 14 games the Lakers have contested since the All-Star break have been decided by single digits. Just in the past week L.A. had to face the Atlanta Hawks and Golden State Warriors—owners of the two best records in the league—in back-to-back games and nearly came away with a pair of stunning victories.

Most players on the roster are not under contract for next season. These guys are out there trying to prove their worth to the entire league in hopes of securing their next contract this summer. That dynamic has led to surprisingly solid play on an individual level.

It's hard to separate one player from the next. All 13 men who have suited up for a game since the break have averaged between 18 and 32 minutes and between five and 14 points per night.

But, as we head into the season's home stretch, we find the narrowest margins with which to power rank the roster, based on everyone's play from the past month.
