Editor's Note: Rotoworld's partner FanDuel is hosting a one-day $50,000 Fantasy Basketball league for Thursday night's games. It's $25 to join and first prize is $7,500. Starts at 8pm ET on Thursday. Here's the FanDuel link.

 

Terrence Jones - Ballin'.

 

D.J. Augustin - So the Bulls have probably two of the top-10 bench guys in fantasy hoops. Maybe top five.

 

Andray Blatche - It's about time he's been able to string games together.

 

Alec Burks - He's running the offense more for the Jazz and is worth a look. Just remember his upside isn't too high.

 

Vince Carter - If scoring in the teens with two treys per game sounds appealing, Carter is certainly for you. He's solid and playing well now.

 

Kelly Olynyk - He's playing well on offense and coming back with a 19-point game is a nice start.

 

Tim Hardaway - The Knicks were able to get him some room.

 

Marcus Thornton - I'm not the biggest Marcus Thornton fan.

 

Brandan Wright - His stats remind me of Anthony Randolph. Wright kinda looks like him too. Plus, Bernard James started the second half, so Samuel Dalembert is back in the doghouse again.

 

Jeff Adrien - It's the Bucks.

 

Ray McCallum - He was better in Las Vegas Summer League than Ben McLemore and he's better than him right now.

 

Moe Harkless - Victor Oladipo probably won't be out long, so Harkless' minutes should go bye-bye now that Arron Afflalo is back.

 

Chris Douglas-Roberts - He might be able to hold down the starting job, at least after a solid game on Wednesday. Gerald Henderson is out through the weekend.

 

Evan Turner - The loss of C.J. Watson opened up some minutes and he ate big time in garbage time.

 

Jordan Crawford - Stephen Curry's leg injury doesn't sound serious, but Crawford would be interesting should Steph sit.

 

E'Twaun Moore - He played 26 minutes and was a letdown considering Ronnie Price played 25. Ignore.

 

Gary Neal - He should have a better game than Wednesday.

 

Drew Gooden - !
