Luis Scola PF/C IND 3 Months

Scola came off the bench and scored five points (2-8 FG, 1-2 FT) while adding eight rebounds, two assists, and three steals in 22 minutes against the Magic Friday.

Scola moved to the bench to make room in the starting lineup for David West (ankle). Despite coming off the bench, however, Scola remained effective, and played only two minutes fewer than his per game average while he was starting. West's return hurts Scola's value, but if Scola can maintain at least 20 minutes per game off the bench, then the hit to his value should be small.

Scola will move back to the bench with David West's (ankle) return to the starting lineup Friday, Pacers reporter Scott Agness reports.

Scola enjoyed a long stint in the starting lineup with West out for the entire season thus far. Although, Scola's minutes will likely be held in check moving forward with West back on the court.

Scola scored 14 points (4-11 FG, 1-3 3P, 5-6 FT) with 11 rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block in 34 minutes during Monday's win over the Mavericks.

He's now averaging 30 minutes, 12.8 points, 9.8 boards and 1.0 blocks over the last four games. Scola should continue to get plenty of run in the short term given the number of injuries in the Pacers' front court, so grab him if you need some help on the glass.

Scola had his best game of the season with 21 points (10-12 FG, 1-4 FT) and 11 rebounds in 30 minutes in the win over the Bulls on Saturday.

Scola had seen limited minutes in his previous two games, but was able to stay on the court and convert his shots against the Bulls. This game was a likely outlier and not the start of something big, but Scola is certainly worth owning in deeper leagues.

Scola could start the Pacers' season opener with David West (ankle) out of action.

West is dealing with an ankle injury and will miss at least the first three games of the season. Scola seems like the natural replacement, though coach Frank Vogel is yet to provide a starting lineup for Wednesday's matchup with Philadelphia. Scola had a rather quiet first year with the Pacers last season, averaging career, per-game lows in points (7.6), rebounds (4.8), assists (1.0) and minutes (17.1).

Scola had five points (1-5 FG, 3-5 FT), two rebounds, an assist, a steal and a block in Tuesday's exhibition contest against the Timberwolves.

Scola drew the start in favor of the injured David West (ankle), and expects to continue to start while the star power forward is on the shelf. Chris Copeland and and Lavoy Allen also saw some run at the power forward, with the former getting the starting nod at small forward. West is expected to be ready for the Pacers' season opener, but if the veteran suffers any setbacks, Scola would be in line for increased playing time, potentially leading to short-term fantasy value. However, it's worth noting that the 34-year-old Scola posted career-lows in most statistical categories in 2013-14.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.
