Luis Scola failed to score in 18 minutes of action vs. the Clippers, missing all four of his shot attempts without any free throws.
Scola did have five rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block, but that's not going to assuage owners who gambled on him in deep leagues or DFS. Scola is as hit-or-miss as they come and he's a poor option with minutes that fluctuate from the mid-20s to the teens. Jan 24 - 9:02 PM

The Raptors defeated the division-rival Celtics on Wednesday, aided by by Luis Scola's 18 points and five rebounds, with a pair of 3-pointers.

Scola shot 8-of-12 from the field without any assists, steals, blocks or turnovers. This is one of his patented catch-me-if-you-can performances and he's likely to disappear in Toronto's next few games, so he belongs on the wire in typical leagues.
Jan 20 - 11:56 PM

Luis Scola drained three 3-pointers during Thursday's win over the Magic, adding 11 points, two boards, three steals and two blocks in just 20 minutes of playing time.

Scola very rarely exceeds the 20-minute mark for the Raptors, which makes it difficult for him to consistently produce meaningful statistics. He's nothing more than a low-end player to own in deep leagues.
Jan 14 - 6:37 PM

Luis Scola scored 22 points in Sunday's loss to the Bulls with five boards, two assists, one block, two steals and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

Scola scored a combined nine points (4.5 ppg) in his two previous outings, so he needed this performance in the worst way. Now that the Raptors are at full strength, Scola will be a low-end guy in standard leagues at best.
Jan 3 - 6:40 PM

Luis Scola shot just 1-of-6 from the field to finish Wednesday's game with four points and seven boards in 21 minutes.

The Wizards started Jared Dudley at PF again tonight and they've been one of the easiest teams for opposing PFs to score against all season. Go figure. Scola's production fluctuates on a nightly basis and he's just outside the top-120 in 9-cat leagues -- a thorough look should reveal better options on your waiver wire.

Luis Scola played 37 minutes against the Bucks on Saturday with 17 points, 11 rebounds, two assists, two blocks and three 3-pointers.

He played really well as the Raptors and their space gave the Bucks a lot of problems. With Jonas Valanciunas (hand) ready to return this week and Bismack Biyombo playing a lot better, there will likely be less center minutes available for Scola. He put up 12th-round value in December and will probably be worse going forward.

Luis Scola had a rough night on Sunday, shooting 1-of-6 from the field for two points in 26 minutes of action.

He grabbed six rebounds and turned the ball over twice without any assists, steals or blocks to his credit. Scola's production bobs up and down based upon matchups (he fares poorly against small-ball teams), which makes him best-suited for DFS use.

Luis Scola cooled off in his return to Indiana on Monday, scoring four points with five rebounds and two steals in 18 minutes.

He's been hot coming into this game with 16.7 points per game in his last three. Scola only has 0.2 blocks per game on the season and his rebounds are dropping even with the added playing time. He's not worth holding in standard leagues.
Mon, Dec 14, 2015 09:24:00 PM

Luis Scola scored 22 points on 10-of-14 shooting in Sunday's home win, hitting two 3-pointers with five rebounds, two steals, and zero assists or blocks in 27 minutes.

Prior to this season, Scola was a combined 10-of-64 from 3-point range for his career. He's averaging 0.6 triples on 41.2 percent shooting this season, however, so tonight's perimeter shooting wasn't a fluke. He's doing enough for borderline value in 12-team leagues this season, and is worth a look if you need a low-end big man with solid percentages.
Sun, Dec 13, 2015 09:51:00 PM

Luis Scola racked up 16 points on 8-of-14 shooting vs. the Spurs, with eight rebounds, one assist and one steal in 33 minutes.

He was coming off a two-point game in 17 minutes vs. the Lakers and this is a perfect encapsulation of Scola's fantasy prospects -- random scoring bursts are followed up by a few duds, and defensive stats are scarce at best. He belongs on the wire in typical leagues.
Thu, Dec 10, 2015 12:28:00 AM

Luis Scola was quiet vs. the Warriors, scoring only 10 points on 2-of-9 shooting with four rebounds and two assists in 20 minutes.

He made all six of his free throws, but added zero steals or blocks and picked up five personal fouls. There was no reason to think Scola would match up well vs. Draymond Green, and this is the fourth straight game in which he's played fewer than 24 minutes.
Sat, Dec 5, 2015 08:12:00 PM

Luis Scola played 20 minutes against the Hawks on Wednesday with eight points, nine rebounds and one steal.

The Raptors are going away from using Scola with Patrick Patterson and the two of them didn't even log 44 minutes combined. Scola is clearly trending down and isn't worth owning in standard leagues.
Thu, Dec 3, 2015 12:12:00 AM

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.
Sun, Nov 29, 2015 09:37:00 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.
Sat, Nov 28, 2015 09:56:00 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.
