Mike Muscala did not score in three minutes against the Magic on Saturday with two assists.

The Ersan Ilyasova deal takes away just about any chance Muscala has to get power forward minutes. If you used him as a deep option in fantasy, it's probably time to move on.
Feb 25 - 9:38 PM

Mike Muscala scored five points with four rebounds, two assists, one block and one 3-pointer against the Magic on Saturday.

He looks to have his role of around 20 minutes with Kris Humphries getting the garbage time center minutes. Muscala played 20 minutes on Thursday and he's also found his shot, making 50 percent from three in January. He's really just a low-upside deep league player.
Feb 4 - 9:25 PM

Mike Muscala (ankle) is probable to play on Sunday against the Knicks.

Friday was his first game back from an ankle sprain that kept him out since Jan. 15. He received some stitches late in Friday's game, but did not return. The game was a blowout and there was no reason to put Muscala out there. He was playing well in that game with eight points, two boards, two blocks and two 3-pointers, but leave him on the wire in most leagues.

Mike Muscala received stitches for a cut on his chin on Friday night.

He's had some bad luck after missing the last two weeks due to his ankle sprain. Muscala cooled off after his great start and has lost his shot a bit lately. Although, he had it going today, making 3-of-5 from the field with two treys for eight points with two boards, two assists and two blocks in 14 minutes. Just keep an eye on him in deep leagues.
Jan 27 - 10:12 PM

Mike Muscala (ankle) will play Friday night against the Wizards.

Muscala will make his return to the lineup after missing six consecutive games dating back to Jan. 15. Muscala's return will eat into the extra minutes Kris Humphries and Mike Scott had been seeing in his absence.
Jan 27 - 7:09 PM

Mike Muscala (ankle) will be a game-time decision for Friday night's game against the Wizards.

Muscala has missed six consecutive games after injuring his ankle back on Jan. 15. Kris Humphries and Mike Scott are expected to continue to divvy up his minutes if Muscala is once again unavailable on Friday.
Jan 27 - 11:59 AM

Mike Muscala (ankle) is questionable for Friday against the Wizards.

He was listed as questionable for Wednesday's game, but he did not play. Muscala has been out since his injury on Jan. 15 after playing minutes in the low 20s. He was putting up value earlier in the season thanks to some fantastic efficiency, but he below 40 percent from the field in his previous 10 games before the injury. The Hawks actaully went small more often on Wednesday, so there really isn't a fantasy pickup to make here.
Jan 26 - 4:59 PM

Mike Muscala (ankle) is out for Wednesday against the Bulls.

The Hawks will continue to use Kris Humphries as the backup big man. Dwight Howard and Paul Millsap should still get heavy minutes against a strong rebounding Bulls frontcourt. Muscala could have value in deep leagues upon his return.
Jan 25 - 7:12 PM

Mike Muscala (ankle) will be a game-time call for Wednesday's matchup with the Bulls.

He'll go through his pregame routine before an official decision is made, although after having spent the past five games on the sidelines, he'll likely have a minutes cap if he is able to get out there. Muscala isn't a great fantasy option in most formats, but his return to action would cut into Kris Humphries and Mike Scott's minutes.
Jan 25 - 6:50 PM

Mike Muscala (ankle) has been upgraded to questionable for Wednesday's game against the Bulls.

Muscala was originally ruled out on Tuesday, but he's made enough progress that there's a chance he might take the court tonight. If he is able to get back out there, Kris Humphries' minutes would take a hit and Mike Scott could drop from the rotation entirely. Stay tuned.
Jan 25 - 1:42 PM

Mike Muscala (ankle) will not play Wednesday against the Bulls.

Kris Humphries and Mike Scott will continue to split Muscala's minutes, but neither guy will be on the floor enough to make a difference in most leagues. Muscala, Humphries and Scott belong on the waiver wire in most settings.
Jan 24 - 4:10 PM

Mike Muscala (ankle) will not play on Monday vs. the Clippers.

This will be Muscala's fifth game in a row on the shelf, but he remains day-to-day. Kris Humphries and Mike Scott have both seen a bump in minutes recently, but not enough for standard-league owners to look their way. Muscala isn't worth stashing in most leagues right now, but that could change if the Hawks put Paul Millsap back on the trade block.
Jan 23 - 9:50 AM

Mike Muscala (ankle) will not play Saturday vs. the Sixers.

This will be the fourth straight game that Muscala has missed. Both Mike Scott and Kris Humphries saw 20 minutes apiece off the Atlanta bench on Friday night. Although this is probably a situation to avoid, it is worth noting that Humphries is averaging 11.3 points, 6.0 rebounds and 1.7 3-pointers over the Hawks last three games.
Jan 21 - 1:47 PM

Mike Muscala (ankle) will not play against the Bulls on Friday.

It will be his third consecutive game out of the lineup due to his ankle sprain from Sunday. The Hawks turned to Kris Humphries to pick up most of the minutes as the backup big. He's played well in his last two, averaging 13.5 points, 4.5 boards and 2.0 treys in 22.0 minutes per game. Humphries probably won't be that good again, but give him a look if you're desperate for a big to stream. Mike Scott has also been in the rotation.
