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.
Apr 12 - 1:52 PM

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.
Apr 1 - 6:40 PM

Luis Scola (rest, soreness) will not play Wednesday vs. the Hawks.

Jason Thompson will likely earn the start tonight sans Scola, but with averages of just 6.5 points, 4.5 boards and 1.5 blocks in his previous two starts in Toronto, his presence in the starting five doesn't mean all that much in fantasy hoops. Patrick Patterson should also see some extended minutes tonight, and he can be viewed as a potential streamer option or punt play in DFS. Scola should be good to go for Friday's game in Memphis.
Mar 30 - 5:53 PM

Luis Scola scored 16 points on 6-of-11 shooting Friday, to go with five boards, one assist, one steal, four 3-pointers and two turnovers in just 23 minutes of action.

Scola has been draining 3.3 triples a game over his past four, to go with averages of 15.5 points, 4.5 boards and 1.5 turnovers on 55.8 percent shooting. He's been knocking down 59.1 percent of his 3-point attempts during that span, which obviously is not sustainable, although he's worth a look in deep leagues while he's this hot.
Mar 25 - 11:13 PM

Luis Scola made 8-of-15 shots with three 3-pointers to finish Sunday's game with 20 points, eight rebounds, one assist, one steal, and only one turnover in 32 minutes.

Scola was coming off an efficient 17-point performance but owners should continue to view him warily. The veteran is benefiting from injuries to Jonas Valanciunas and Patrick Patterson, and this is the first time since late January that he's scored double-digit points in consecutive games.
Mar 20 - 8:13 PM

Luis Scola will start against the Hawks on Thursday.

He should see minutes close to 20, but he will be rested on occasion. Scola is not a fantasy option in almost any league. Norman Powell is also sticking in the starting lineup.
