Luis Scola did not score in six minutes with one turnover and no other stats on Friday.
He didn't play at all in the second half. Scola's offense was a waste for almost the entire postseason, putting up just a paltry 39.1 true shooting percentage. The 36-year-old forward will be a free agent this summer and he certainly won't have a big market after him. May 27 - 11:24 PM

Date:

Luis Scola started again on Saturday with no points, no rebounds and one assist in 17 minutes.

While he wasn't great on the offensive end, he didn't kill the Raptors on defense. It did help to see Kevin Love miss most of his shots while Scola was on him. He's not really a fantasy option even in the starting lineup.
May 21 - 11:24 PM

Luis Scola is starting again on Saturday against the Cavs.

Why? The Game 2 starters had a minus-28.4 net rating while the starters in Game 1 only had a minus-2.0 net rating. Scola should be on a short leash tonight. He'll join Bismack Biyombo, DeMarre Carroll, Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan We should still see plenty of Patrick Patterson off the bench.
May 21 - 8:12 PM

Luis Scola will start on Thursday with Patrick Patterson moving to the bench.

The Raptors starters were actually OK on Tuesday, but their bench was destroyed. Scola will likely only play minutes in the teens, so he's not a great fantasy option.
May 19 - 8:22 PM

Luis Scola picked up a DNP-CD on Tuesday vs. the Pacers.

Patrick Patterson played 26 minutes in the starting lineup and while he wasn't great, he will likely be the starter going forward. Scola isn't a fantasy option.
Apr 26 - 9:39 PM

Luis Scola will move to the bench for Tuesday's Game 5 against the Pacers.

Scola has been struggling as a starter through Toronto's first-round series, owning meager averages of 2.0 points and 3.0 boards on 21.4 percent shooting. He wasn't worth using as a starter, and it'll only get worse for Scola fantasy-wise with the demotion to the second unit.
Apr 26 - 5:52 PM

Luis Scola missed all five shots from the field and made 1-of-2 from the line for one point with two rebounds on Saturday.

His 14 minutes were about 14 minutes too many. Scola hurt the Raptors a ton today and he shouldn't be cracking double-digit minutes.
Apr 23 - 5:55 PM

Luis Scola (rest, knee) will play Tuesday vs. the 76ers.

Scola has been rested for the past two games, but he'll get back on the court tonight which will likely result in Jason Thompson returning to the bench. This game could turn into a blowout quickly, so Scola's could find himself taking an early seat on the bench. He's not worth deploying in most settings.
Apr 12 - 6:01 PM

Luis Scola (rest, knee) is probable for Tuesday's game against the 76ers.

Scola has sat the Raptors last two games to rest his knee for the playoffs, but looks to be available for Tuesday night against Philadelphia. With the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference locked up, Scola will likely see his minutes limited on Tuesday and isn't worth a great option in most fantasy leagues.

Luis Scola (rest, knee) did not travel for Sunday's game against the Knicks.

He is getting some added rest for his knee issue. Jason Thompson and Patrick Patterson will get some extra run at power forward.
Apr 9 - 5:48 PM

Luis Scola (rest) will not play on Friday vs. the Pacers.

Jason Thompson will draw the start at power forward, but expect him to split minutes with Patrick Patterson. To be clear, Patterson is the better option in fantasy leagues for his 3-point shooting.
Apr 8 - 6:54 PM

Luis Scola played 11 minutes in his return on Saturday with two rebounds and two assists,

The Raptors kept his minutes down after he rested the last two. Scola may start, but he's not valuable in almost any fantasy league right now. He'll likely rest a couple more games.
Apr 2 - 11:19 PM

Luis Scola (knee) will start against the Spurs on Saturday.

He should be able to play his normal amount of playing time, but Scola isn't a great pickup in most leagues. Jason Thompson moves back to the bench.
Apr 2 - 8:09 PM

Luis Scola (knee) is questionable against the Spurs on Saturday.

This is from the game notes, so it's pretty much a non-update. Scola has rested the last two games and the Raptors won both games. If he's out, Jason Thompson would start again.
Apr 2 - 5:37 PM

Luis Scola is resting again on Friday night.

He will be active, but the Raptors will rest him on the front end of a back-to-back set. Jason Thompson will step into his role, but he's not a great fantasy option.
