Luis Scola PF/C IND 10 Months

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.

Luis Scola played just 16 minutes off the bench Wednesday, but still had 14 points and six rebounds in a win over the Jazz.

He's averaging 12 points and 5.5 rebounds over his last two games, but scored eight or fewer in each of his previous three games. And the fact he's played 16 or fewer minutes in three straight games means he should be on the waiver wire in most fantasy leagues.

Luis Scola missed all four of his field goal attempts in 21 minutes vs. the Sixers on Saturday.

Scola made three free throws and grabbed five rebounds, but this about sums up his lack of fantasy appeal. The Pacers won the game even without much help from Scola, keeping pace with the Spurs for the best record in the NBA at 12-1. And with Derrick Rose out indefinitely due to a torn medial meniscus, the Pacers seem like a lock to win the Central division.

Luis Scola shot 7-of-9 from the field for 17 points in 25 minutes against the Celtics on Friday to go with four boards, one assist and two steals.

He scored eight points in each of his last three games and didn't top more than 21 minutes in any outing either. Scola has never really had much upside in fantasy for lack of shot blocking, so he's not really someone that will be worth picking up while David West and Roy Hibbert are healthy. West finished with 17 points, eight boards, three assists and three steals in 29 minutes.

Luis Scola played 21 minutes against the Magic on Tuesday and had eight points, one rebound, one assist and one turnover on 4-of-7 shooting.

He was the only big man on the Pacers not to get any of their 18 blocks on Tuesday, which has been a weakness to his value. While Scola was a great addition to their team in reality, he'll have a tough time sustaining value in most leagues with a healthy David West.

Luis Scola shot 10-of-19 from the field in Argentina's consolation game victory over the Dominican Republic, scoring 23 points, with nine rebounds and five assists.

Scola was great throughout the tournament and he can obviously still play at a high level. His role in Indiana as a backup to David West really hurts his fantasy value though, as he will likely be more valuable to the Pacers than he is to fantasy owners.

Luis Scola continued his massive FIBA tournament in a win for Argentina, scoring 23 points with seven boards, two assists, one block and two 3-pointers.

He's hit five 3-pointers in his last four games, which is not something that's usually in his arsenal. In fact, of his 5,714 shot attempts his career, Scola has only made four triples. We're not expecting this to translate to his fantasy value, but his stellar play has to make the Pacers feel good about picking him up from Phoenix. He will come off the bench and isn't worth drafting in standard leagues.

Luis Scola shot 10-of-17 from the field in Argentina's FIBA win over Puerto Rico on Thursday, scoring 23 points with eight boards, six assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

He's been on a tear in his five games, averaging 16 points, 7.2 boards and 3.0 assists in just 28.8 minutes. This summer, the Pacers picked up Scola for very little from the Suns and he could be used to give David West a little more rest this year. Scola isn't quite worth drafting in standard leagues, though.

Coach Frank Vogel called newly acquired PF Luis Scola "one of the savviest players ever at the power forward spot."

Scola will be an upgrade offensively on last year's backup power forward, Tyler Hansbrough. But he won't come close to the 14.2 points and 7.5 rebounds he's averaged throughout his six-year NBA career. Note that David West played 33.4 minutes a night last year and missed just nine games. Scola may be savvy and a Vogel favorite, but his fantasy value is in the tank.

The Pacers will trade Miles Plumlee, Gerald Green and a 2014 protected first-round pick to the Suns for Luis Scola.

Scola has been the model of consistency over his career. He's missed just eight games over his six-year career and has shot 50.4 percent from the field in that span. The Suns are in the midst of an overhaul and new GM Ryan McDonough isn't hesitating to put his stamp on the team and has already pulled off a tremendous deal to acquire Eric Bledsoe. Scola's value takes a hit here and he will play behind David West at power forward. Conversely, it looks like Markieff Morris' strong summer league made quite the impression on the Suns and he's gaining quite a bit of momentum.
