Does Paul George have your attention yet? If he doesn't already, he should.

During the past four games, Oklahoma City's star swingman has averaged 38.3 points, 7.5 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 2.3 steals and 6.3 3-pointers per game. Amazing numbers, especially when you consider that he's also doing it with efficiency and taking right around 23 or 24 shots a game in this stretch.

With George playing like this and Anthony Davis continuing to miss games due to a finger injury while also demanding a trade out of New Orleans, we've moved George up to No. 6 this week and Davis -- a top-two player when right -- all the way down to No. 7.

This is likely the lowest Davis goes this season, but there's no denying the risk involved with him; he's not playing and when he does return, he could either be in a new uniform or be an unhappy Pelican. He enters the week having missed the past seven games.

Joining George this week in a move up the rankings are Devin Booker (31), Mike Conley (36), Myles Turner (40), Chris Paul (50), Serge Ibaka (59), Trae Young (60), Al Horford (61), Brook Lopez (66) and Jonathan Isaac (113).

Notable fallers include Tobias Harris (27), who has cooled off lately and is now behind several red-hot players such as Luka Doncic (23), Kyrie Irving (24) and Donovan Mitchell (26).

While Harris has been impressive distributing the ball, dishing out 4.4 assists during the past five games, his scoring (16.6 PPG), rebounding (6.8 RPG) and shooting (38.5 percent) have all fallen off, as has his 3-point shooting (1.2 3PG, 26.1 percent).

De'Aaron Fox (41), Jarrett Allen (63), Danilo Gallinari (64), Kris Dunn (67), Nikola Mirotic (108) and Enes Kanter (134) are others to slide this week.

Of the players involved in the blockbuster Kristaps Porzingis trade between the Knicks and Mavericks, one who has a chance to thrive in his new surroundings is Dennis Smith Jr. (96). Smith, a terrific athlete and the No. 9 overall pick in 2017, could play big minutes and become the main point guard in New York for the rest of this season.

With Emmanuel Mudiay sidelined due to a shoulder injury -- and now out of our top 150 -- Smith will get an opportunity to make a strong initial impression; he played 26 minutes in his Knicks debut against the Grizzlies on Sunday.

Newcomers to the list this week include Brooklyn's Caris LeVert (131) and Shabazz Napier (132), Minnesota's Jerryd Bayless (139), Phoenix's Mikal Bridges (143) and San Antonio's Davis Bertans (148).

Here is a look at the rest of the top 150 roto rankings.
