Mike Muscala took advantage of extra playing time on Tuesday with six points, 13 rebounds (six offensive) and one assist in 24 minutes.
The big man from Bucknell set a new career-high with the 13 boards. He's a sketchy fantasy option in the Hawks' final seven games, though the likelihood of DNP-CDs for Al Horford and Paul Millsap at least put him on the radar for fill-in value. We'll let you know if and when he's worth considering as a flier. Mar 31 - 10:07 PM

Mike Muscala had career highs with 18 points and 10 rebounds against the Hornets on Saturday, adding four assists, one steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

He showed off the full arsenal tonight with a lot of mid-range, some back-to-the-basket stuff and decent defense. Muscala will likely have another start headed his way on Tuesday when the Hawks are on the road in Detroit, so give him a look at any depth in daily leagues for his back-to-back to start next week.

Hawks recalled C Mike Muscala from the D-League.

If you blinked, you probably missed the fact that he was even sent down.
Mar 2 - 1:13 PM

Mike Muscala was assigned to the NBA D-League on Sunday.

He is not currently in the rotation in Atlanta and isn't likely going to have any fantasy value this season. Leave Muscala on the wire.
Mar 1 - 10:17 AM

Mike Muscala will be inactive for Sunday's game against the Grizzlies.

Adreian Payne will join the active roster for Sunday's game, but there's a good chance he doesn't leave the bench unless the game turns into a blowout. Both Muscala and Payne have no business being on a roster in standard leagues.
Feb 8 - 5:27 PM

The Hawks have recalled C Mike Muscala from the D-League on Sunday.

He's not going to be in Atlanta's rotation this season barring a couple of injuries, so it's safe to leave Muscala on the wire in almost all leagues.
Feb 8 - 1:27 PM

Mike Muscala was sent down to the NBA D-League on Saturday.

It's hard to imagine Muscala cracking the rotation in Atlanta this season, so he will have to develop his game in the D-League for now. Leave Muscala on the wire.
Feb 7 - 9:36 AM

Hawks big man Mike Muscala made his first NBA start on Tuesday, notching six points, nine rebounds and one steal in a blowout win vs. the 76ers.

He shot 3-of-10 from the field in 26 minutes, and finished with a +/- rating of -3 in a game the Hawks won by 18 points. Muscala started because Paul Millsap was resting, so this doesn't have much relevance outside of daily leagues.

Hawks recall C Mike Muscala from the D-League.

Mike Muscala was sent down to the NBA D-League on Sunday.

He is going to bounce between the Hawks and the D-League all season which makes him close to impossible to own in almost every format. Leave Muscala on the wire.
Sun, Dec 28, 2014 09:11:00 AM

Mike Muscala was recalled from the NBA D-League on Saturday, and is expected to be available against the Rockets.

He has been playing well in the D-League, but he is still a couple of injuries away from being in the rotation in Atlanta. You can leave him on the wire with confidence.
Sat, Dec 20, 2014 11:21:00 AM

Mike Muscala has been sent down for a D-League stint.

Muscala has trouble getting off the bench when the Hawks have a healthy roster, so he'll get some experience playing in the D-League. He's averaging just 4.9 points and 2.4 rebounds over 10 minutes of action this season, and belongs on the waiver wire in nearly all leagues.
Fri, Dec 19, 2014 10:08:00 AM

Mike Muscala filled in for Mike Scott (illness) on Wednesday with 12 points, seven rebounds, three assists and one turnover in 19 minutes.

It's his second game in double-figure scoring and he continues to play well off the bench. Muscala will lose his playing time once Scott is back, so there's no need to pick him up.
Thu, Dec 11, 2014 12:28:00 AM

Mike Muscala was sent down to the D-League on Saturday.

He will earn valuable experience with Fort Wayne, but when he does return to Atlanta he will be buried on the depth chart and should be ignored in almost all leagues.
Sat, Dec 6, 2014 11:38:00 AM

Mike Muscala scored 16 points with seven boards, two assists and one block in 26 minutes vs. the Rockets on Saturday.

He played well and entered today's game with averages of 13.4 points, 8.0 boards, 1.4 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.8 blocks in 27.4 minutes over his previous five. Muscala still is buried on the depth chart and is no lock for minutes off the bat.
