Description: Pacers power forward Luis Scola's fantasy value Monday will rest on whether Ian Mahinmi (ankle) returns to the court.
Insight: Scola had 15 points and 14 rebounds as he notched his fifth double-double of the season on Sunday, but Mahinmi's possible return would cut into his 26 minutes of court time.
 
2/8/2015 10:16:00 PM
Description: Pacers power forward Luis Scola recorded a double-double as Indiana beat Charlotte, 103-102, on Sunday.
Insight: Scola had 15 points and 14 rebounds as he notched his fifth double-double of the season. The 14 rebounds tied a season-high. Scola also had three assists while shooting 6-of-11 from the field. Despite this great game, Scola is not fantasy relevant.
 
2/5/2015 3:08:00 PM
Description: Pacers power forward Luis Scola should also see time at backup center with both Lavoy Allen and Ian Mahinma sidelined.
Insight: Scola is averaging 9.0 ppg and 6.2 rpg, but expect his numbers for the next few games to rise significantly as the primary backup for both Roy Hibbert and David West.
 
1/23/2015 10:08:00 PM
Description: Pacers power forward Luis Scola scored a team-high 14 points off the bench during Friday's loss against the Heat.
Insight: He did so in just 15 minutes of action, and also had seven rebounds. Scola went 5-of-8 from the field and 4-of-4 from the line, but is really not much of an option these days.
 
11/16/2014 10:33:00 AM
Description: Pacers power forward Luis Scola made 10-of-12 shots from the field to help record his second double-double this season.
Insight: Scola had 21 points and 11 rebounds while also contributing a steal and two blocks. His only blemish was his 1-for-4 at the line.
 
Cold11/13/2014 3:50:00 PM
Description: Pacers power forward Luis Scola had a poor outing Saturday versus Washington.
Insight: Scola has had a chance to show he's worthy of more minutes, but has come up short. He's averaging 6.9 oog, 7.3 rpg while starting for David West in 23 mpg. That's not enough to unseat the starter when he returns from his ankle injury.
 
11/9/2014 11:08:00 AM
Description: Pacers power forward Luis Scola had a poor outing Saturday versus Washington.
Insight: He had only five points, eight rebounds, and four turnovers, but if Roy Hibbert misses an extended period of time, Scola will have a chance for increased production.
 
10/27/2014 3:15:00 PM
Description: Pacers power forward Luis Scola could be a double-double threat for the first week of the season as starter David West is expected to miss at least three games due to a sprained ankle.
Insight: It's only temporary, so don't overvalue his first week's production.
 
10/23/2014 6:43:00 PM
Description: Pacers power forward Luis Scola is a double-double threat when he plays.
Insight: Indiana has openings in the starting lineup with Lance Stephenson leaving via free agency and Paul George breaking his leg. Scola, however, does not play either position those two guys play. Scola could actually see fewer minutes since the Pacers will need more from Roy Hibbert and David West.
 
10/29/2013 10:25:00 PM
Description: Pacers power forward Luis Scola scored eight points over 21 minutes in the season opener.
Insight: Scola is being used strictly as a backup to David West, who played 31 minutes Tuesday, so he won't have much fantasy value.
 
9/9/2013 3:30:00 PM
Description: When the Suns traded Luis Scola to the Pacers they likely damaged his fantasy value. As backup to David West, Scola doesn't figure to get the same 26 minutes-a-game he averaged with Phoenix.
Insight: Scola averaged 12.8 points and 6.6 rebounds per game in his lone season with the Suns. He has averaged 14.2 ppg over his six NBA seasons including a high of 18.3 ppg in 2010-11.
 
7/27/2013 3:30:00 PM
Description: The Suns have traded Luis Scola to the Pacers for Gerald Green, Miles Plumlee and a 2014 lottery-protected first-round pick.
Insight: It was essentially spare parts for Indiana. Scola received inconsistent minutes and averaged 12.8 points and 6.6 rebounds per game in his lone season with the Suns. He'll take Tyler Hansbrough's role as David West's backup. Hansbrough averaged just 17 minutes per game last season.
 
4/9/2013 10:37:00 PM
Description: Phoenix PF/C Luis Scola burned his old team, the Houston Rockets, for 28 points on 12-of-20 shooting, eight rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 38 minutes Tuesday.
Insight: Scola's minutes are inconsistent in the ever-changing Suns lineup. Play him at your own risk.
 
3/28/2013 10:01:00 AM
Description: Phoenix power forward Luis Scola has averages of 14 points and 6.8 rebounds over his last five games.
Insight: Scola's minutes are inconsistent in the ever-changing Suns lineup. He's playing well now, but it won't be long before interim coach Lindsey Hunter pulls the rug out from under fantasy owners again.
 
Cold3/15/2013 5:04:00 PM
Description: Phoenix power forward Luis Scola will come off the bench Friday against the Hawks. Suns coach Lindsey Hunter has decided to start Jermaine O'Neal at center.
Insight: Scola is only averaging 22 minutes per game over his last 10 games and averaged 7.5 ppg over his last six. He is no longer a reliable fantasy option.
 
3/10/2013 9:33:00 AM
Description: Phoenix power forward Luis Scola has only played more than 24 minutes once in his last eight games and is averaging just 22 mpg in that span.
Insight: We really don't know what new coach Lindsey Hunter is trying to accomplish but you'd think a team missing Marcin Gortat and Jermaine O'Neal would want to get Scola more involved.
 
1/13/2013 10:10:00 AM
Description: Phoenix power forward Luis Scola had his highest scoring game of the month Saturday night with 22 points on 9-of-15 shooting. Scola added seven rebounds, three assists and one steal.
Insight: Scola has seen more playing time since he rejoined the starting lineup. In his last 15 games, he's playing 31 minutes per game and averaging 14.9 points, 6.1 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game.
 
Hot1/5/2013 11:02:00 AM
Description: Phoenix power forward Luis Scola has had an impressive four-game stretch that has seen him average 23.3 points, 7.0 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 1.5 blocks per game.
Insight: Scola only had three points in his first game back in the starting lineup but he's scored at a rate of 15.3 ppg with 8.9 reb, 1.2 stl and 0.8 blk over his last nine contests.
 
12/29/2012 10:38:00 PM
Description: Phoenix power forward Luis Scola chipped in with a season-high 33 points Saturday in a loss to Minnesota.
Insight: Scola came down with 10 boards as well. Saturday was Scola's sixth double-double of the season and his first since December 17th when he finished with 14 points and 10 assists in a win over the Kings.
 
12/28/2012 7:26:00 PM
Description: Suns forward Luis Scola scored 12 points with four rebounds, two assists and one steal Friday night against the Pacers in his eighth straight start.
Insight: Scola hasn't seen the expected uptick in production since moving back to the starting lineup. In fact, his minutes, shots, points and rebounds have all dropped off in the last eight games.
