Here’s a look at Wednesday night’s fantasy basketball surprises and whether or not they should be added to your fantasy roster.
Al-Farouq Aminu, New Orleans Hornets
Aminu scored 17 points on 8-of-16 shooting as the Hornets’ starting small forward. He added seven rebounds, three assists, two steals and three blocks, stuffing the box score. Love the game, but I want to see a few more games out of him.
Carlos Delfino, Houston Rockets
Delfino had a nice night, scoring 15 points on 5-of-6 shooting from behind the arc. He also pulled seven boards and had a steal. He only played 24 minutes, though.
Richard Hamilton, Chicago Bulls
Rip scored 19 points on 7-of-16 shooting. He added a rebound, three assists and two steals. The Bulls are going to need scoring while Derrick Rose is out. Rip can provide that.
Chandler Parson, Houston Rockets
Parson had a solid day, posting 11 points, seven rebounds and six assists. He only made three of nine shots, but with a .452 shooting percentage last year, that’s not a major concern. He’s a decent passer for a forward, so you should keep an eye on him, but I’d hold off on adding him for now.
Brandan Wright, Dallas Mavericks
Wright had 15 points on 7-of-8 shooting with three rebounds, one assist and two blocks. He had 14 points in the opener. Chris Kaman is due back soon, so Wright’s days of fantasy relevance appear numbered.
Dorell Wright, Philadelphia 76ers
Wright scored 14 points, grabbed seven rebounds, picked up two steals and one block. Unfortunately, he shot 3-of-12. I don’t see him as a consistent option. Keep him in mind only for leagues with daily roster changes.
