Editor's Note: Rotoworld's partner FanDuel is hosting a one-day $50,000 Fantasy Basketball league for Friday night's games. It's $25 to join and first prize is $7,500. Starts at 7pm ET on Friday. Here's the FanDuel link.


Gerald Green - He has to be owned everywhere now. Green is locked in to the starting lineup for perhaps for the rest of the season.


J.J. Redick - He is returning Friday night.


Kenneth Faried - He's back in Brian Shaw's good graces and has been putting up some consistent lines. The Manimal had nine points, 14 boards, one steal and one block on Thursday.


Randy Foye - He's caught fire again and is basically a must-own guy. Foye had 24 points, four boards, one assist, one steal and six 3-pointers on Thursday.


Raymond Felton - He played great without J.R. Smith, but everyone did. He should be picked up in most leagues, but I wouldn't cut a guy with solid value.


Iman Shumpert - He looks to be the winner of the J.R. Smith fallout. Shumpert played a season-high 43 minutes vs. the Heat with 12 points, nine boards, three assists and four 3-pointers.


Andrea Bargnani - He somehow had 11 shots in the paint vs. Miami. Although, not having Tyson Chandler probably had a lot to do with the uptick in production.


Nate Robinson - He played 23 minutes and should get over 20 while Wilson Chandler is out. Lil Him had six points on 3-of-13 shooting.


Norris Cole - Mario Chalmers shouldn't be out for too long.


Marcus Thornton - He could start, but the Kings will likely go back to Ben McLemore soon enough.


Evan Fournier - He was effective off the bench with 19 points on Thursday and could have a couple good games left in him.


Tim Hardaway Jr. - He would be getting some more playing time with Smith on the outs. Shumpert can't play 43 minutes every night.


Toure Murry - The Knicks are going to play him more with Beno Udrih and J.R. Smith up in the air.


Quincy Miller - He was solid in his start and probably earned another one. That doesn't mean he's worth owning in most leagues.
