Luis Scola explained that his adjustment to coming off the bench has been easier this season.
Hampered last season by a sore shooting elbow, Scola is now comfortable and healthy. "It took me a little while to get used to (playing off the bench)," he said. "When you have a consistent role you get to know what your team is going to do and they know how you play and you know when you're going to get into the game and how many minutes you play," he added. Scola got some run with the starters early this year when David West (ankle) was out, and it's benefiting him nicely now. In unrelated news, Scola had a red welt on his knee after Sunday's win, but it's not expected to be an issue. Mar 2 - 10:05 AM

Luis Scola led the Pacers' second unit on Sunday with 15 points on 7-of-12 shooting, six rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block in just 19 minutes of action.

The 76ers yield monster games to role players with regularity, so view Scola's big night in context. Scoring and rebounding are Scola's strong-suits, and those two categories are the only reasons to own him in deep fantasy leagues.
Mar 1 - 9:59 PM

Luis Scola notched his fifth double-double of the season with 15 points, 14 rebounds and three assists in 26 bench minutes vs. the Hornets on Sunday.

The boards tied Scola's season high and he only turned the ball over once while shooting an efficient 6-of-11 from the field and 3-of-4 from the FT line. This was easily one of his best games all season and one outlier performance doesn't change his poor post-break fantasy outlook.
Feb 8 - 9:59 PM

Luis Scola (rest) will be active against the Kings on Saturday.

Scola was a healthy scratch on Thursday so that he could get some extra rest, but he will have to step back into the rotation vs. the Kings now that Lavoy Allen has been ruled out with a sore knee. However, considering that Scola has been a major disappointment this season, owners outside of deeper leagues should look the other way.
Jan 31 - 11:50 AM

Luis Scola (rest) is doubtful for Saturday's game against the Kings.

With Lavoy Allen (knee) being listed as questionable, there's a chance Frank Vogel is forced to bring Scola back into the rotation. However, Scola wasn't even able to carve out standard league value as a starter for Indiana, so he's not going to be an option in most leagues as a reserve. Chris Copeland figures to be the primary big off the bench if both Allen and Scola are unavailable on Saturday.
Jan 30 - 1:08 PM

Luis Scola was rested on Thursday night.

It was scheduled rest, according to coach Frank Vogel. Scola is not going to have much fantasy value while David West is healthy and his upside isn't high anyway, so he can be left on the wire in most leagues.
Jan 29 - 10:04 PM

Luis Scola played 22 minutes against the Warriors on Wednesday with 14 points, six rebounds and one block.

He should see a few more minutes of action, but Scola's per-minute averages suggest he won't be moving into the standard-league discussion for fantasy owners. Lavoy Allen is probably the better pickup in deep leagues until Roy Hibbert (ankle) can return.
Jan 8 - 1:55 AM

Luis Scola came off the bench for 12 points, 14 rebounds, three assists and a steal on 5-of-10 shooting in 25 minutes on Wednesday.

Roy Hibbert was benched and David West was terrible, while Scola has now scored in double figures in four straight games. Eventually, Hibbert and West should figure things out and hurt Scola, but he's a t least worth keeping a close eye on for now.
Wed, Dec 10, 2014 10:50:00 PM

Luis Scola returned to the bench with David West back in the starting lineup on Friday, scoring five points on 2-of-8 shooting with eight rebounds and three steals in 22 minutes.

Scola wasn't worth much with the team banged up and owners can move on if they haven't already.
Sat, Nov 29, 2014 03:16:00 AM

Luis Scola started and had 13 points and six rebounds on 5-of-12 shooting in Wednesday's loss to the Spurs.

Scola could be on his way out of the starting lineup soon if David West is really ready to play through his ankle injury on Friday. He might hold onto some value with Roy Hibbert also sitting with a sprained ankle, but when both West and Hibbert are healthy, it's hard to see Scola being worth owning in most leagues.
Thu, Nov 27, 2014 01:47:00 AM

Luis Scola had a uncharacteristic versatile line in Monday's win over the Mavs, scoring 14 points on 4-of-11 shooting with 11 rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block, one three and a 5-of-6 mark from the foul line.

Scola has been productive and will probably enjoy the rest of his four-game week, but he will lose his low-end value sooner rather than later when David West and Roy Hibbert return.
Tue, Nov 25, 2014 01:09:00 AM

Luis Scola scored a season-high 21 points against the Bulls on Saturday with 11 boards, one steal and two blocks in 30 minutes.

He was absolutely terrible before today and didn't score more than eight in any of his previous four games while only playing 16.0 minutes per game in his last two. Scola doesn't have enough value right now and it'll get even worse once David West (ankle) is ready to return.
Sat, Nov 15, 2014 11:31:00 PM

Luis Scola played 28 minutes and had a line of just five points, eight rebounds and four turnovers against the Wizards on Saturday.

He shot 1-of-4 from the field and didn't provide any other stats. With David West (ankle) hopeful to come back next week, Scola owners in deep leagues can probably jump ship.
Sat, Nov 8, 2014 09:50:00 PM

With David West (ankle) out for another week, Luis Scola will continue to start in his place.

Scola may be the starter, but he's only averaging 23 minutes per game as he splits time with Lavoy Allen. Scola is averaging 8.0 points, 7.0 rebounds, 4.0 turnovers, 1.0 steal, and 1.0 assists over the past three games while shooting 52.4 percent from the field. Owners in standard leagues can probably do better elsewhere.
Mon, Nov 3, 2014 03:14:00 PM

Luis Scola finished Saturday's loss to the Hawks with his first double-double in more than 10 months, scoring 12 points with 10 rebounds and one steal in 26 minutes.

David West (ankle) was expected to miss three games but his status remains unclear for the Pacers' fourth game, Tuesday vs. the Bucks. When West returns Scola will move to a bench role and yield very little fantasy value despite the Pacers' roster-wide injury problems.
