Portland Trail Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge ranks No. 25 on ESPN.com's latest player rankings list.

ESPN.com ranked Portland Trail Blazers All-Star forward No. 25 on their latest list of the league's top players.

This is an abbreviated version of the site's full top-500 rankings that only covers the top 30. There was no real explanation included, but so far Aldridge trails Washington Wizards guard John Wall, Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo, Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose and New York Knicks center Tyson Chandler, who rank from No. 21 to No. 24.

Aldridge, who was selected to his second consecutive All-Star Game this season, ranked No. 20 overall back in September 2012.

Here's how the Blazers fared in the full top 500 back in September.

LaMarcus Aldridge: No. 20
Nicolas Batum: No. 63
Wesley Matthews: No. 109
J.J. Hickson: No. 202
Damian Lillard: No. 211
Jared Jeffries: No. 268
Meyers Leonard: No. 330
Nolan Smith: No. 338
Sasha Pavlovic: No. 357
Ronnie Price: No. 373
Luke Babbitt: No. 401
Will Barton: No. 409
Elliot Williams: No. 422
Victor Claver: No. 460
Joel Freeland: N/A
