Here we are heading into the 24rd week of the 2017-2018 NBA season. To this point in the season, the Golden State Warriors have yet to be ranked #1 via the new formulated power rankings.

This week, they had to settle for #7 in the power rankings, which is their lowest ranking since they were ranked at #15 heading into the third week of the season.

With Stephen Curry out, could this spell trouble for the Warriors moving forward, or will the defending champions finally jump to the top spot of these rankings for the first time this season at some point before the season concludes?

Here are the Warriors’ power rankings so far this NBA season, week by week.

  • Preseason (non-formulated): 1st
  • Week 2: 20th
  • Week 3: 15th
  • Week 4: 4th
  • Week 5: 2nd
  • Week 6: 2nd
  • Week 7: 4th
  • Week 8: 4th
  • Week 9: 2nd
  • Week 10: 2nd
  • Week 11: 2nd
  • Week 12: 2nd
  • Week 13: 2nd
  • Week 14: 3rd
  • Week 15: 2nd
  • Week 16: 2nd
  • Week 17: 5th
  • Week 18: 4th
  • Week 19: 6th
  • Week 20: 2nd
  • Week 21: 2nd
  • Week 22: 5th
  • Week 23: 5th
  • Week 24: 7th

Their stretch of 21 consecutive weeks in the top 7, however, is very impressive. When, if ever, will they finally make the jump to the #1 spot this season?
