Luis Scola played only 18 minutes during Sunday's loss to Phoenix, which he finished with nine points, two 3-pointers, four rebounds and one assist.
Phoenix deployed Markieff Morris, Jon Leuer and Mirza Teletovic, all of whom can knock down perimeter shots, so it wasn't a great matchup for Scola defensively. He's cooled off after a hot four-game stretch, averaging just 7.5 points and 5.0 rebounds with zero defensive stats in the Raptors' past two games. There should be more appealing options on your waiver wire. Nov 29 - 9:37 PM

Luis Scola scored six points in 26 minutes against the Wizards on Saturday, adding six rebounds and two turnovers.

Scola also didn't play down the stretch. He was rolling in his first two games after Jonas Valanciunas (hand) was hurt, but he's coming back to Earth as expected. Even with the increase in points, Scola added just one steal and one block in his last five games. He's more of a 14-team or 16-team player for standard formats. He's a little more attractive in points leagues.
Nov 28 - 9:56 PM

Luis Scola racked up 15 points on 7-of-11 shooting with seven rebounds and one steal in 30 minutes vs. the Cavs on Wednesday.

Scola is undeniably hot right now -- in his past four games he's averaged 17.0 points on 56.6 percent shooting, with 6.3 rebounds. He's also knocking down 1.3 triples per game, but has been predictably absent in assists, steals and blocks. The 35-year-old's scoring is even more important with Jonas Valanciunas (hand) on the shelf, and he's worth a pickup until he cools off, but it's hard to imagine him maintaining this pace for long.
Nov 25 - 11:12 PM

Luis Scola scored 20 points on 8-of-16 shooting during the Raptors win over the Clippers on Sunday, adding eight rebounds, one assist, one 3-pointer and two turnovers through 31 minutes.

Scola is going to be seeing some increased opportunity for Toronto with Jonas Valanciunas (hand) out at least the next six weeks, so he's worth a speculative add in deep leagues. Just know he doesn't do a whole lot aside from score and board.
Nov 22 - 6:34 PM

Luis Scola played 25 minutes against the Lakers with 11 points, five rebounds, one assist, one block and one 3-pointer.

Scola kind of maxes out at minutes around 26, so the Raptors will probably not be counting on him much more while Jonas Valanciunas (hand) is out. We'll probably see some Lucas Nogueira, too. Scola is worth a look in 14-team leagues due to lower upside.
Nov 21 - 4:18 AM

Luis Scola scored 22 points against the Jazz on Wednesday, adding five rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers.

Derrick Favors shuts down almost every power forward he touches, so this is pretty impressive from Scola. That said, he's scored a combined 18 points in his last three and only has a 19.0 usage rate in his 22.7 minutes per game this season. He's more of a 14-team guy.
Nov 19 - 12:09 AM

Luis Scola got going vs. the Sixers on Wednesday, hitting 10-of-15 shots for 21 points in only 19 minutes of action.

The veteran took advantage of a young Philly squad that was undersized with Nerlens Noel (wrist) out of commission tonight. His last big game came vs. a gutted Mavericks frontcourt, and Scola should be viewed as a matchup-specific gamble in nearly all leagues.
Nov 11 - 10:40 PM

Luis Scola posted a low-end line in Friday's loss to the Magic, scoring seven points on 3-of-11 shooting (including a three) with six rebounds, five assists and one steal over 21 minutes.

Scola has cracked the late rounds this season with averages of 7.3 points, 0.5 treys, 7.8 boards and 1.0 steals per game in 22.1 minutes per contest. There's no need to get overly optimistic about a role or production increase, and he's still just a low-upside option for 14-16 team formats.
Nov 6 - 9:49 PM

Luis Scola cooled off vs. the Thunder, scoring only two points on 1-of-6 shooting with five rebounds, one assist and one steal.

He scored 19 points on Tuesday but that was against a gutted Mavericks frontcourt, while tonight he was facing Steven Adams and Serge Ibaka. Scola will occasionally raise some eyebrows with his scoring and rebounding but he's not consistent or versatile enough for use in 12-team leagues.
Nov 4 - 11:36 PM

Luis Scola started and hit 9-of-13 shots and a 3-pointer for 19 points, 12 rebounds and two steals in 31 minutes in Tuesday's win over Dallas.

This was easily his best game of the season and you might not have even known he was starting for the Raptors. Not only was this his first double-double of the season, but the first time he hit double figures in either category. Put him on your radar, but keep in mind he isn't a shot blocker, which is a tough pill to swallow with a power forward.
Nov 3 - 11:49 PM

Luis Scola did not score in 17 minutes against the Pacers on Wednesday with eight rebounds, one steal and four turnovers.

The Raptors really don't need him to do anything besides rebound and play defense and he actually didn't take a single shot tonight. Scola is not a great option.
Oct 28 - 11:53 PM

Luis Scola will start against the Pacers on Wednesday.

He's not starting just because it's a revenge game and Scola outplayed Pat Patterson big time in the preseason, so this should stick. Still, there are not many shots to go around for Scola and he's not a shot-blocker. Scola is only worth a look in deep leagues.
Oct 28 - 6:35 PM

Luis Scola is expected to start at power forward on Wednesday.

This is credible speculation for now, but Patrick Patterson was a disaster in the preseason and it makes sense. Scola still isn't a great play in most leagues due to low defensive output.
Oct 28 - 6:17 PM

Luis Scola scored nine points with six rebounds and one turnover in 21 minutes on Friday.

He has stared the past two games and the Raptors won them both. Scola may start, but he's not very good for fantasy owners because he does not put up defensive stats.
Oct 23 - 11:19 PM

Luis Scola started at PF on Sunday and scored eight points on 4-of-7 shooting with three rebounds and one steal in 15 minutes.

Patrick Patterson chipped in five points in 17 minutes off the bench, and we're no closer to knowing who will start alongside Jonas Valanciunas on opening night. Patterson has a higher ceiling than Scola, thanks to his 3-point range, but neither guy is covetable while they're stuck in a position battle.
