Al Horford said that he worked out with Mike Scott last week, and that he's doing okay.
"Yeah, we worked out together last week. Mike is doing OK. He's doing good," said Horford responding to a question on how Scott was doing following his arrest in July. "Obviously, tough situation for him, but we're standing behind him." Scott could be looking at a 25-year prison sentence after being arrested on felony drug charges as a passenger in his brother’s car, and this is a story we'll be monitoring very closely.

Mike Scott could face up to 25 years in prison on two felony charges for his arrest last month.

He already admitted the drugs in the car were his. The 10.9 grams of MDMA carries a sentence of up to 15 years and his possession of 35.2 grams of marijuana carry a sentence up to 10 years. Banks County will wait for lab tests on the drugs to be returned before setting a court date, according to Assistant District Attorney Sam Skelton.

Mike Scott admitted all the drugs from his felony possession charge belonged to him.

He was a passenger in his brother's car with 10.9 grams of MDMA and one ounce of Molly. The incident report says his brother was unaware of the drugs in the car. Scott will be facing a suspension and may even be released.

Mike Scott has been bonded out of the Banks County Sheriff’s Office Law Enforcement Center.

In case you missed it, Scott and his brother were arrested on Thursday on felony drug charges for possession of marijuana and MDMA. "We are aware of the situation involving Mike Scott this morning," Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said on Thursday. "Out of respect for the legal process, we will not have any additional comment at this time." A court date is currently pending, so we will continue to update this story when we know more. To be clear, the NBA or the Hawks could pursue disciplinary action against Scott even before the legal process is concluded.

Mike Scott was arrested on felony drug charges for possession of marijuana and possession of Schedule I drug (MDMA).

Scott was arrested due to having drugs in his possession and was the passenger in a car. Banks County Sheriff's Office Sgt. Carissa McFaddin said, "Deputies located over an ounce of marijuana in the vehicle along with approximately 10.9 grams of MDMA (Molly)." Police pulled over the SUV going 98 MPH.

Mike Scott said that he's 100 percent healthy, and ready to go if his number is called.

Scott has now picked up five consecutive DNP-CD's, but his health doesn't appear to be the culprit for his absence. Head coach Mike Budenholzer said that he doesn't believe DeMarre Carroll's (knee) injury will affect Mike Scott much, because he views Scott as a power forward, so it doesn't sound like his minutes will be trending upward despite the injury to Carroll. Mike Muscala has stepped into an increased role, and it appears his ascension into the rotation is coming at the expense of Scott.

Mike Scott (bruised back) logged 11 minutes with the second unit on Sunday, scoring five points with one rebound, two steals and two turnovers.

The Hawks swept the Nets in the regular season, 4-0, and they picked up where they left off tonight with a seven-point home victory. Scott's return to action contributed to DNP-CDs for both Mike Muscala and Elton Brand.
Apr 19 - 8:32 PM

Hawks' head coach Mike Budenholzer said that Mike Scott will be available for Game 1 on Sunday.

Scott will provide the Hawks with some solid depth, but with Paul Millsap and Al Horford healthy, he's not a great guy to target in fantasy leagues.
Apr 19 - 3:54 PM

Mike Scott (back) is not on the injury report for Game 1 against the Nets on Sunday.

That means he should be ready to go. Scott suffered his back injury on Monday and missed the finale on Wednesday. He should have minutes in the mid-teens, but that's assuming Paul Millsap's shoulder holds up.
Apr 18 - 2:10 PM

Mike Scott (back) made it through practice on Saturday and is expected to be available for Sunday's game vs. the Nets.

Scott has been a key contributor off the bench for the Hawks, and his presence is even more important considering Paul Millsap isn't 100 percent. We will have another update after shootaround Sunday, but things are definitely looking up for Atlanta.
Apr 18 - 1:00 PM

Mike Scott (back) was a limited participant in practice on Friday and will be evaluated this weekend.

"He is progressing," coach Mike Budenholzer said. "We’ll know more between now and (Game 1) Sunday. I don’t think we can say either way that he is definitely in or definitely out. He went through a lot of practice today. We’ll see how he feels today and Sunday. We are hopeful he’ll be ready to go." With Paul Millsap back, Scott isn't going to be as important. If he's limited Mike Muscala would get more run with the second unit.
Apr 17 - 3:22 PM

Mike Scott (back contusion) will not travel to Chicago for Wednesday's game vs. the Bulls.

With Paul Millsap's (shoulder) status up in the air for Tuesday, and Scott out, Mike Muscala could be in line for a healthy heaping of minutes. He has however been struggling lately, scoring just two and five points in his previous two outings, so he'll be a risky play in daily leagues despite the increased opportunity.
Apr 14 - 2:20 PM

Mike Scott led the Hawks with 19 points on 6-of-15 shooting vs. the Wizards, hitting three 3-pointers with three rebounds and one assist in 30 minutes off the bench.

The Hawks' reserve forward has explosive offensive potential, as evidenced by his averages of 17.0 points and 2.1 triples per 36 minutes this season. He's averaging only 16.2 minutes per game this season and will be limited with the Hawks' starters returning on Monday, however, so don't put too much stock in tonight's outburst.
Apr 12 - 8:53 PM

Mike Scott came off the bench to hit 7-of-14 shots and two 3-pointers for 20 points and eight rebounds in Wednesday's win over the Nets.

The Hawks are thrilled to have him back and Scott looked great in his 31 minutes tonight. Atlanta will probably continue to try to get him touches in preparation for the playoffs, so he looks like a sneaky addition right now in fantasy leagues. Just keep in mind that the return of Paul Millsap, possibly Friday, would hurt Scott's minutes, at least in theory.
Apr 8 - 11:02 PM

Mike Scott played 10 minutes in his return to the lineup on Saturday with two points, two boards, two assists and one steal.

With Paul Millsap (shoulder) going down, Scott could wind up getting some minutes. There's no way the Hawks will rush Millsap back, so Scott could wind up getting 20-24 minutes very soon. Considering how much time he missed, we'd rather pick up Mike Muscala. All fantasy owners should be watching him and not just for the emoji tattoos.
