Luis Scola made all five shots from the field and both free throws for 14 points against the Bucks on Saturday, adding eight rebounds, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 18 minutes.
Brook Lopez (rest) was not in the lineup, which allowed Scola to get a few extra chances. He's not usually this diverse on the stat sheet and his career suggests he won't be picking up in most leagues. Oct 29 - 11:49 PM

Luis Scola - F/C - Nets

Luis Scola started the second half of Wednesday's game, which he finished with eight points, three assists, one rebound and one 3-pointer in 22 minutes.

Scola was subbed in at halftime during a few preseason games, and it may have been more than just experimentation from coach Kenny Atkinson. Even if the veteran emerges as a starter, which seems unlikely, he's a dubious fantasy asset.

Luis Scola - F/C - Nets

Luis Scola started the second half for Brook Lopez on Wednesday.

And it took less than one game for Lopez's fantasy owners to be mad at coach Kenny Atkinson. It does not sound like an injury, which is a good indication of how tough it will be to predict this rotation.

Luis Scola - F/C - Nets

Luis Scola will not play vs. the Knicks on Saturday.

The Nets already know what the veteran forward can do, so they will use this opportunity to evaluate their younger guys. Fantasy sleeper Chris McCullough should get a lot of burn tonight in addition to Trevor Booker.

Luis Scola - F/C - Nets

Luis Scola posted 15 points, 10 rebounds and two 3-pointers during Argentina's 105-78 loss to the U.S. on Wednesday.

Argentina started strong but they lost steam as the game proceeded, finishing just 30-of-78 from the field as a team (38.5 percent). Scola wasn't too sharp himself, going just 6-of-16 from the field with five turnovers and four personal fouls in what could be his final game on the international stage.

Luis Scola - F/C - Nets

Luis Scola scored seven points with five rebounds, one assist, one turnover and one 3-pointer against Spain during a 92-73 loss on Monday.

The savvy Spanish team neutralized his low-post game and kept a body on him in the perimeter, as well. Scola is much better on the international stage, but his days of making a noteworthy impact in the NBA look to be behind him.

Luis Scola - F/C - Nets

Luis Scola had 14 points (6-of-9 shooting), 10 rebounds, two 3-pointers and three turnovers for Argentina in Saturday's 111-107 2OT win over Brazil.

Scola isn't expected to have a large on-court role in Brooklyn next season, but he's still got something left in the tank and has been playing well for his national team.

Luis Scola - F/C - Nets

Luis Scola scored 12 points with seven rebounds, four assists, two steals and one 3-pointer against Lithuania on Thursday.

The Lithuanians guarded him quite well in this game. Scola's low-post arsenal has dominated international competition for about a decade, but it didn't work too well with him only making 5-of-11 from the field. He's not expected to have an impact with the Nets next season.

Luis Scola - F/C - Nets

Luis Scola scored 23 points to lead Argentina to a 90-82 win over Croatia, giving his team a 2-0 record in Rio.

The 36-year-old forward was impressive, adding nine rebounds, one steal and two blocks, and he even added three treys on five attempts. The veteran signed a one-year deal with the Nets this summer, but he's likely going to have a limited role off the bench in what could be his final season in the NBA.

Luis Scola - F/C - Nets

The Nets have signed Luis Scola to a one-year deal, according to The Vertical.

It's unclear how much run the 36-year-old will see with the rebuilding Nets, but his fantasy value is limited as he's more important to the team as a veteran presence off the bench.

Luis Scola - F/C - Nets

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.

Luis Scola - F/C - Nets

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.

Luis Scola - F/C - Nets

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 - F/C - Nets

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 - F/C - Nets

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.
