Editor's Note: Rotoworld's partner FanDuel is hosting a one-day $12,000 Fantasy Basketball league that includes Thursday and early Friday games. It's $25 to join and first prize is $2,500. Starts at 8pm ET on Thursday. Here's the FanDuel link.

Jeff Green - A lot of impatient people are cutting him out there. Green is playing better with Rondo.

 

Jared Sullinger - He's beasting again.

 

Steve Blake - He's a must-own player. Bonus points for me giving him the pic yesterday?

 

Khris Middleton - He was already a must-own player, but solidified it tonight. Plus, Ersan Ilyasova getting hurt helps.

 

Danny Green - If you're in a standard, he's higher. He's also probably owned. Believe it or not, he's at seventh-round value on per-game average.

 

John Henson - He had to shake off the rust, so his owners shouldn't be too discouraged.

 

Courtney Lee - Finally. Lee had 22 points, five boards, four dimes and two 3-pointers. He should get better than his last two-game dud streak coming in.

 

Jordan Farmar - He's going to play on Friday and looked fantastic on Wednesday and I'd have a hard time leaving him on the wire. Don't worry about the cramps. Well, don't worry much.

 

James Johnson - If he gets 25-plus minutes, he's must own. Big if, though.

 

Tim Hardaway Jr. - Bye, Shump. THJ is getting burn and is earning a lot of shots.

 

Rodney Stuckey - He's a low upside, so I wouldn't add him in a 10-team. I'd roll with a hot Wes for the short-term.

 

Wes Johnson - He's a hot spec add with Nick Young in question. Johnson scored 20 and looked great. Cavs, though.

 

Patty Mills - He will do some eating while Tony Parker is out of the lineup.

 

Patrick Patterson - He just won't slow down and I'm probably too low on him.

 

Mike Scott - He scores in double-figures every night and hit four treys in the loss vs. NO.

 

Brandan Wright - The offense is coming on, but where's the D? 

 

Nate Wolters - Luke Ridnour went down, so Wolters might have to stick.

 

Robert Sacre - He had six fouls and was allowed to keep playing! How can you leave him on the wire?! Well, the players above are a handful of reasons, I guess.

 

Cory Joseph - He'll likely be the starter on Thursday, but you want Mills.

 

Matt Barnes - He played 40 minutes with 12 points, seven boards, four assists, two steals and one 3-pointer. If Redick has to miss time, he should be solid.

 

Kyle Singler - There are not many more boring guys that Singler.

 

Nick Calathes - His value has a short shelf life.

 

Samuel Dalembert - Two good games in a row from Dalembert is equal to one good quarter from some of these other adds. Too inconsistent.

 

Anthony Morrow - I can't imagine Tyreke Evans misses much more time.

 

Dante Cunningham - I'd only add if you're really scared over Kevin Love.

 

Shane Battier -Mr. Battier! 

 

Anthony Bennett - He's getting better, but he still has a lot of work to do.

 

Zaza Pachulia - He's hurt too much for my liking.
