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.

Ruling: Pass 


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.

Ruling: Pass 


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.

Ruling: Stash 


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.

Ruling: Pass 


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.

Ruling: Pass 


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.

Ruling: Pass
