4. Brandon Miller

Last week's rank: 6

Brandon Miller becomes the highest riser in this week's list.

Miller has finally looked like the number two pick we all expected he would. Unfortunately, it took an injury to give Miller more usage on the offensive end. Hornets guard Lamelo Ball will miss multiple weeks due to an ankle sprain.

Despite an unfortunate injury to Ball, Miller has picked up the slack. Over Miller's last five games, he has shot uber efficiently from behind the arc. He hasn't had a game under 50 percent from behind the arc in almost two weeks. If Miller continues to shoot this well, he could rise into the Rookie of the Year conversation.

Miller's production has skyrocketed over the last two weeks. He has now become a nearly 40 percent 3-point shooter on the year and has become an intricate piece for the Hornets' rotation moving forward.

Defensively, Miller still has a lot of work to do, but the blueprint is there. Miller has always done a great job using his 6-foot-7 frame to contain players around the perimeter. If Miller can consistently become an above-average perimeter defender, he could become one of the NBA's best wings.

Miller still needs to show consistency week-to-week, which is why he is at four on this week's list.
