If the Philadelphia 76ers want to use the little time they have left to turn their season around and save it, then it's going to require that certain members of the team step up.

Go down the list of Sixers starters and their seasons have been pretty good. Not many people are going to ever have seasons like Jrue Holiday is having, so that's a unique circumstance, but most of the starters playing next to him are stepping up and producing as well.

As for some of the other role players? Not so much.

These are the guys that fill in the gaps of an organization. The guys that occasionally save the day with an amazing performance, but more importantly, the guys that come in and do what they are supposed to.

The guys that help to prevent a 17-25 start to the season.

Up to this point, there are multiple Sixers who have not lived up to their potential, and a change in play will be needed as the season moves forward.

Here's a list of five Philadelphia players who must step up in the second half of the season.

Statistics are accurate as of Jan. 24, 2013.
