Mike Scott scored 17 points in 17 minutes against the Warriors on Friday with two rebounds and three 3-pointers.
He was tremendous at the end of the third and scored eight points in just 1:01. Scott doesn't log many minutes and is just at 15.0 per game on the season, so he's not going to have much fantasy value while Paul Millsap is healthy. He leads the NBA in emoji tattoos, but is not worth owning in most leagues. Feb 7 - 12:12 AM

Mike Scott, who had a season-high 20 points on Monday, hit just 1-of-6 shots for five points in 19 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Pacers.

Scott was great on Monday, but it was a fluke. Tonight's fluke was Pero Antic, who had 12 points, four rebounds and three 3-pointers, and you can expect a different bench player to step up against OKC on Friday, because that's how the Hawks roll this season.

The Hawks reeled off their 13th consecutive win on Monday, aided by Mike Scott's season-high 20 points, two 3-pointers, five rebounds and two steals off the bench.

Scott made 9-of-15 shots in a mere 21 minutes of action, propelling Atlanta to a 93-82 home victory vs. the Pistons. Although his production is too sporadic for use in typical fantasy leagues (this was his third double-digit scoring game in January), Scott has emerged as a reliable rotation player for the red-hot Hawks.
Jan 19 - 6:22 PM

Mike Scott scored six points with three rebounds, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 13 minutes against the Bulls on Saturday.

He had a couple chances to shine with the Hawks resting players, but he didn't come through. Scott has a nice ceiling when he does get minutes, but the minutes won't be there while Paul Millsap and Al Horford are healthy.
Jan 17 - 11:07 PM

Mike Scott relieved Paul Millsap early on Wednesday when Millsap ran into foul trouble and hit 5-of-7 shots and two 3-pointers for 15 points, four rebounds and a steal in 25 minutes.

Scott has show signs of breaking out all season, but as long as Millsap and Al Horford are healthy, it's probably not going to happen. Just keep an eye on him.

Mike Scott (flu-like symptoms) said that he is feeling well enough to play Friday.

All of Scott's numbers are in the single digits, so he can only be viewed as a 3-point specialist in extremely deep leagues. Standard league owners can safely leave him on the wire as long as Al Horford and Paul Millsap are healthy.

Mike Scott (flu-like symptoms) has been upgraded to probable for Friday's game vs. the Magic.

Scott doesn't do enough statistically to be considered an option in standard leagues, leave him on the wire.
Thu, Dec 11, 2014 04:20:00 PM

Mike Scott (illness) will not play in Wednesday's game vs. the 76ers.

He should be fine with a little rest, so consider him day-to-day for now. Scott doesn't have a large enough role to matter in most leagues, and Elton Brand and Pero Antic will likely see some extra playing time off of the bench Wednesday.

Mike Scott poured in 17 points in 22 minutes on Tuesday, making 5-of-10 field goals and 5-of-6 free throws in a road win vs. the Wizards.

Scott hit two 3-pointers and added seven rebounds, one assist, and even blocked a shot for the first time this season. While this performance will delight owners lucky enough to have started him, his 15-minute role off the bench isn't yielding value outside of 20-team leagues.
Tue, Nov 25, 2014 09:45:00 PM

Mike Scott played 17 minutes in his return to the lineup on Friday with 11 points, two rebounds and one assist.

He usually just backs up Paul Millsap, but Scott does get some run next to him on occasion. His back injury might pop up on him again and he's only worth a look in deep leagues.
Fri, Nov 14, 2014 11:49:00 PM

Mike Scott (back) should be available to play in Friday's game vs. the Heat.

Scott can be viewed as a 3-point specialist for owners in deeper leagues, but as long as Al Horford and Paul Millsap are healthy, Scott isn't worth owning in standard leagues.
Fri, Nov 14, 2014 12:43:00 PM

Mike Scott (back) is being listed as probable for Friday's game vs. the Heat.

Scott is currently averaging 9.7 points and 2.0 three-pointers on the season, so he's more of a 3-point specialist at best for owners in deeper leagues. Stay tuned for an official update on Scott's status as we draw closer to Friday's tip.
Thu, Nov 13, 2014 02:56:00 PM

Mike Scott (back) will not play in Wednesday's game vs. the Jazz.

He took a hard fall in Monday's game after he was fouled hard by Amare Stoudemire, and won't recover in time for Wednesday's game. However, Scott doesn't have a large enough role to warrant your attention in standard leagues and can be safely ignored on the waiver wire. Consider Scott day-to-day for now and we could get our first look at rookie Adreian Payne (foot), who is questionable for Wednesday's game.
Wed, Nov 12, 2014 12:20:00 PM

Mike Scott (lower back contusion) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Jazz.

Scott was hurt when he fell hard after being fouled by Amare Stoudemire Monday, but with averages of just 9.7 points and 2.0 three-pointers per game, he shouldn't be viewed as anything more than a 3-point specialist. Owners in standard leagues can feel free to leave him on the wire.
Tue, Nov 11, 2014 05:16:00 PM

Mike Scott came off the bench and played just 21 minutes, but hit 8-of-11 shots and four 3-pointers for 20 point, four rebounds and an assist in Wednesday's loss.

The low minutes combined with the lights-out shooting should mean he comes back to earth in his next game. He's playing behind Paul Millsap, who struggled a bit tonight, and should probably remain on waivers in most leagues until we see him do this a couple more times.
