The two-time Finals MVP is now fourth in the Western Conference frontcourt -- trailing LeBron James, Luka Doncic and Paul George.

Last week, Durant was in third place but George vaulted ahead of him by 141,248 votes.

Steph Curry is still No. 1 among Western Conference guards, but Derrick Rose trails the two-time MVP by only 107,318 votes.

James Harden -- arguably the front-runner for league MVP -- is in third place, a solid 312,180 votes behind Rose.

The fans account for 50 percent of the vote to determine the starters, while NBA players and a media panel each hold 25 percent of the weight.

The starting lineup consists of two guards and three frontcourt players, so Durant is currently on the outside looking in when it comes to the fan vote.

LeBron James is No. 1 overall with 2,779,812 votes. Giannis Anteteokoummpo is No. 2 overall (and No. 1 in the Eastern Conference) with 2,670,816 votes. As of now, those two would be the captains.

Voting will conclude on Monday, Jan. 21 at 8:59pm PT.
