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. Nov 15 - 11:31 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.
Nov 8 - 9:50 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.
Nov 3 - 3:14 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.
Nov 2 - 1:12 AM

Luis Scola was eaten alive against the Grizzlies on Friday, turning the ball over five times with two points, five rebounds and one assist in 19 minutes.

He turned the ball over four times in the first quarter and didn't even take a shot in that frame. We can probably assume his 10-point, six-board game was a product of the Philly defense. Scola is not a great fantasy asset for not filling the stat sheet, so he can be left on the wire in most leagues.
Oct 31 - 9:45 PM

Luis Scola started at power forward and hit 5-of-9 shots for 10 points, six rebounds, two assists and two steals in 25 minutes.

He'll likely go back to the bench once David West is healthy and his inability to block shots makes him tough to own - even when he's starting.
Oct 29 - 11:06 PM

Luis Scola is set to start for the Pacers on Wednesday in place of David West (ankle).

He has an excellent chance to produce solid stats against a weak 76ers team. However, Scola is only an option in daily leagues, or just as a waiver pickup until West returns. Scola will be joined in the starting lineup with Donald Sloan, C.J. Miles, Chris Copeland, and Roy Hibbert.

Luis Scola scored 15 points with 12 rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and two turnovers against the Hornets on Thursday.

David West (ankle) is very questionable to start the year, so we should see a lot of Scola to start the season. He's never really been a consistent fantasy asset because he rarely contributes in other categories besides points and boards. Scola is more of a short-term add and we like Chris Copeland more as a late-round pick for his upside.
Oct 23 - 9:48 PM

Luis Scola is expected to start against the Wolves on Tuesday.

As it stands right now, he could be the starter on opening night with David West dealing with an ankle injury. Scola has rarely turned in top-100 value because he's only a two-category player, so fantasy owners shouldn't be overly excited about picking him up.
Oct 20 - 10:30 AM

Luis Scola scored 30 points in a losing effort for Argentina on Sunday, making 11-of-19 FGs and 7-of-11 FTs with nine rebounds and one block.

Scola's one-man show wasn't sufficient to counter Croatia's balanced scoring, but it's nice to see the Pacers' veteran thriving in the World Cup. He's not a reliable fantasy asset as a backup behind David West, but would be a nice waiver wire pickup if injuries strike Indiana's frontcourt.
Aug 31 - 3:34 PM

Luis Scola picked up some extra playing time during Thursday's loss to the Hawks with 20 minutes, scoring 17 points with three boards and no turnovers.

Roy Hibbert was as about as useless as an ejection seat in a helicopter tonight and it allowed Scola to play much of the fourth quarter. Scola came out hot in the fourth quarter, making 5-of-5 to start the frame and finishing 7-of-11 over the entire game. The Pacers are a complete mess and it wouldn't be a shock to see coach Frank Vogel mix things up and move Scola into the starting lineup.
Apr 24 - 10:02 PM

Luis Scola came off the bench to hit 9-of-14 shots in just 19 minutes and finish with 20 points and seven rebounds in Tuesday's big Game 2 win over the Hawks.

This was Scola's best game of the season off the bench for the Pacers and he picked the right time to make it happen. If David West (8 points, 2 rebounds) continues to struggle against Paul Millsap, we could continue to see more Scola for the rest of this series.
Apr 22 - 9:44 PM

Luis Scola will join George Hill, Evan Turner, Rasual Butler and Roy Hibbert in the starting five for the Pacers tonight.

Scola and Turner look like decent fantasy plays tonight, but we'd stay away from the rest of them.
Apr 16 - 6:52 PM

Luis Scola started for the Pacers, who rested all five starters, and hit 11-of-17 shots for 24 points and nine rebounds as Indy held on for a 104-102 win over the Bucks Tuesday.

Well, that tells you just how bad the Bucks are, while the Pacers actually gained on the Heat with the win tonight. In fact, they passed them and moved back into the No. 1 seed in the East, just in time for Friday's game at Miami. Surely the Pacers will stop the nonsense, try to figure out how to get the starters back on the same page and possibly secure homecourt all the way through the Eastern playoffs with a win on Friday. If not, maybe they'll start all the scrubs again, and if that happens, Scola is a must-start. The Pacers have to try to win that game, as the two teams are a combined 18-23 since March 4.
Apr 9 - 11:35 PM

Luis Scola will start against the Bucks on Wednesday with all five starters resting.

He's played more that 25 minutes just twice in a game this season, posting a 17-point, four-board game on Nov. 22 and a 12-point, 10-board game on Dec. 10. Scola should be able to put up a double-double with solid field goal percentage, but his potential owners shouldn't expect much else.
