Luis Scola PF/C IND 3 Months

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.

Luis Scola will start against the Bucks on Wednesday with all five starters resting.

He's played more that 25 minutes just twice in a game this season, posting a 17-point, four-board game on Nov. 22 and a 12-point, 10-board game on Dec. 10. Scola should be able to put up a double-double with solid field goal percentage, but his potential owners shouldn't expect much else.

Luis Scola got hot against the Bulls on Friday, scoring a team-high 19 points with six boards and one block in just 20 minutes.

He shot 9-of-12 from the field for his best scoring output as a Pacer. David West has played well as the team's power forward, so he's obviously not in jeopardy of losing playing time to Scola. The Argentine has played just 15.5 minutes per game this month and is really only worth owning in deeper leagues.

Luis Scola grabbed six rebounds but missed all five of his FG attempts in 13 minutes on Wednesday, finishing scoreless in just 13 minutes of action.

As unsightly as Scola's line was tonight, it shouldn't have hurt many fantasy owners given his utter lack of value through the All-Star break. He's hardly worth a glance as long as David West is healthy.

Luis Scola scored a season-high 18 points off the bench on 8-of-11 shooting against the Pistons on Monday to go with four boards and two assists in 20 minutes.

He had his mid-range game working tonight and scored most of his points outside of the paint. Scola has double-digit scoring games in five of his seven games, but has just one block over that span. He's not much help in fantasy outside of points and field goal percentage.
