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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Fri, Oct 31, 2014 09:45:00 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.
Wed, Oct 29, 2014 11:06:00 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.
Wed, Oct 29, 2014 12:53:00 PM

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.
Thu, Oct 23, 2014 09:48:00 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.
Mon, Oct 20, 2014 10:30:00 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.
