Mike Muscala played 19 minutes off the bench against the Cavs on Saturday with seven points, two rebounds, one block and one 3-pointer.
He has a chance for more playing time with Tiago Splitter (hip) missing time. Muscala obviously won't be getting more than around 22 minutes, so he's more of a deep-league add. He also had a limp after the game, too. Nov 21 - 10:05 PM

Mike Muscala played 19 minutes against the Wizards on Saturday with seven points, two rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer.

Tiago Splitter (rest) got the night off, so Muscala's minutes were inflated a bit tonight. Before his ankle injury in the opener, Muscala was the second big off the bench. He's nowhere near being added in most leagues, obviously.
Nov 8 - 1:41 AM

Mike Muscala (sprained right ankle) is probable for Saturday's game vs. the Wizards.

Muscala isn't in the rotation right now and may not even see the floor if he is active, so fantasy owners can continue to ignore him.
Nov 7 - 12:59 PM

Mike Muscala (sprained right ankle) did not play in Friday's game against the Pelicans.

Muscala has played a total of 10 minutes this season, missing both of his shot attempts while filling a majority of the box score with doughnuts. He won't have any fantasy value while the Hawks' frontcourt is healthy.
Nov 5 - 4:22 PM

Mike Muscala (sprained right ankle) played two minutes of garbage time on Wednesday.

Mike Scott scored four points in 14 minutes of action and his playing time may be in jeopardy, as he's shooting 27.3 percent through Atlanta's first six games. Muscala should carve out a backup role but the Hawks have too much frontcourt depth for him to make an impact.
Nov 5 - 3:26 AM

Mike Muscala (ankle) is questionable to play against the Nets on Wednesday.

He said he is not 100 percent and he has yet to play since his injury in the opener. The Hawks will likely hold him out and continue to use Mike Scott as Paul Millsap's backup.
Nov 4 - 3:15 PM

Mike Muscala said that his ankle isn't 100 percent and that he is still experiencing soreness after workouts.

Muscala is active for Tuesday's game vs. the Heat, but he probably won't see the floor. He can be ignored in fantasy leagues, while Mike Scott could see a few more minutes while Muscala continues to heal.
Nov 3 - 5:16 PM

Mike Muscala (ankle) is questionable to play against the Heat on Tuesday.

He was active for Sunday, but he did not play. Muscala was in the rotation as Paul Millsap's backup, but the team may take it easy on him until he's 100 percent.
Nov 2 - 6:11 PM

Mike Muscala (ankle) is active for Sunday's game vs. the Hornets.

This doesn't mean that he will be in the rotation, but he is healthy enough to play. Muscala will be competing for minutes with Mike Scott moving forward and isn't a fantasy option.
Nov 1 - 1:24 PM

Mike Muscala (sprained right ankle) is being listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Hornets.

Muscala isn't a major part of the rotation in Atlanta, so whether he plays or not will be an irrelevant factor in most leagues.
Oct 31 - 5:04 PM

Mike Muscala (ankle sprain) will not play vs. the Hornets on Friday.

This will be his second straight game on the shelf and it doesn't sound like we will see him play on Sunday either. Mike Scott will be in the rotation in Muscala's absence, but he will only see minutes in the teens.
Oct 30 - 12:46 PM

Mike Muscala (right ankle) is likely to miss several games, according to Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer.

Muscala has already been declared out for Thursday's game against the Knicks, but it sounds like he'll miss at least two games over the weekend as well. "We'll evaluate him over the next three, four, five, or six days and see how he's doing," Budenholzer said. We'll keep Muscala's status updated over the next week, but Mike Scott will inherit some extra minutes (without gaining much fantasy value) while Muscala is out.
Oct 29 - 1:43 PM

Mike Muscala (right ankle) will not play against the Knicks on Thursday.

He could barely put any weight on his ankle last night and needed help to the locker room. With Muscala out, the Hawks turned to Mike Scott to get minutes at the four and five. Scott still isn't an option while there could be a few minutes headed to Al Horford and Paul Millsap as well. Also, Millsap played 100 percent of his minutes at power forward on Tuesday.
Oct 28 - 3:04 PM

Mike Muscala (right ankle) will not return to Tuesday's game vs. the Pistons.

The Hawks are calling it a sprain, but we will likely have another update on Wednesday. For now, consider Muscala questionable to play against the Knicks on Thursday. Muscala leapfrogged Mike Scott in the rotation tonight, so it would be a shame if he had to miss time. Muscala had one board and one turnover in eight minutes.
Oct 27 - 10:09 PM

Mike Muscala (right ankle) left Tuesday's game vs. the Pistons and his return is uncertain.

He was putting a little weight on his ankle when he was walking back to the locker room, so hopefully the injury is not too serious. If Muscala needs to miss time moving forward, Mike Scott will benefit. We'll have an update shortly.
