Watching basketball is fun, my friends. You know what else is fun? Gambling!
Now you can do both. SB Nation has entered into a partnership with the fantasy site FanDuel, bringing with it the opportunity for our readers to play daily fantasy basketball for potential cash prizes. Now you can play fantasy without the inevitable heart attack that comes when your best player goes down with a season-ending injury.
Here are the rules. Build your one-day roster within the confines of a salary cap, trounce your opponent into dust, and collect your winnings the same day.

Later in the season we will premiere a private P&T league. For now, you can sign up to the big-time SB Nation league, which starts Wednesday night at 7:05 p.m. ET. We will also roll out some fantasy-centric weekly content for you to enjoy.
You must be 18 or older and live in the US or Canada to play. Please note that residents of AZ, IA, LA, MT, and WA cannot play for money. Don't hesitate to ask in the comments below if you have any questions.
