Editor's Note: Rotoworld's partner FanDuel is hosting a one-day $70,000 Fantasy Basketball league for Friday night's games. It's $25 to join and first prize is $9,000. Starts at 7pm ET on Friday. Here's the FanDuel link. We had a very hectic Wednesday night on the news front, but here we go with the pickups:


O.J. Mayo - Just kidding. I hope nobody owns him.


Jimmy Butler - He played 60 minutes.


Jared Sullinger - Sully is back, you guys! He busted out for 25 points, 20 boards, four assists, two steals and one 3-pointer.


Victor Oladipo - People were cutting him before, so make sure he's owned.


Shawn Marion - In case he was dropped, go get him. Marion had 14 points, six boards, three assists and two 3-pointers.


Nene - He's healthy and ballin'. Nene had 19 points, four boards, nine assists, two steals and three blocks.


John Henson - He will be fine as long as he's getting 26 minutes. Henson had eight points, 13 boards, two assists, one steal and one block.


Enes Kanter - It's probably time to start him, Mr. Corbin.


Alec Burks - #FreeAlecBurks


Randy Foye - He was back in the swing of things after a dud his last time out. Foye had 21 points, five boards and four 3-pointers.


Marco Belinelli - He's going to keep posting nice lines for the next month.


Darren Collison - I'm assuming he's owned everywhere. DC had 13 points, 10 dimes, one steal and one 3-pointer. Doc Rivers should help him out a bit.


Kris Humphries - Hump didn't go off like Sully, but he was solid with 12 points, eight boards and a block.


James Johnson - Kaboom. He had 15 points, six boards, five assists, two steals and six blocks in 28 minutes.


Markieff Morris - He has these lines every once in a while that suggest he's going to get real hot. Wednesday's 24-point game was his latest.


Brandan Wright - He remains one of the more efficient scorers in the NBA. Wright had 13 points, seven boards and one assist. Where are the blocks?


Jordan Hill - Here we go again.


J.J. Hickson - The upside is a little too low. Hickson blew up for 13 points and 24 boards, though.


Tony Snell - The Bulls gave him more minutes than Mike Dunleavy. Snell had 15 points, seven boards, two assists and three 3-pointers.


Wes Johnson - He should be good with the suspension coming for Nick Young


Jerryd Bayless - He was bad with just one point. He should have better luck on Friday.


Matt Barnes - We kind of have to see it again. Barnes scored 25 points vs. the Mavericks after being a ghost for the most part.


Moe Harkless - He played 43 minutes and only had one shot. Crazy.


Luke Ridnour - I'm not interested.


Nate Robinson - The damage was done in a short amount of time. Nate had 24 points in 23 minutes.


Ryan Kelly - Mike D'Antoni. Ugh.


Trevor Booker - He double-doubled, but we will need to see it again.


Alexey Shved - He's playing much better.


Norris Cole - Mario Chalmers could be back soon. If Cole is still around on the wire, it's probably pointless to add him.


Dewayne Dedmon - He made his Philly debut with two blocks and seven boards in 14 minutes. Not a bad start.


Darius Miller - I almost typed 'Darius Miles' here. Miller did play 30 minutes.


Greg Oden - It was so great to see him out there. Still cannot add him in almost any league.


Kyle O'Quinn - He was very good with 12 points, seven boards and three blocks. KOQ will drop off upon Nikola Vucevic's return.
