Mike Scott    F  Wizards

 

 

Mike Scott matched his season-high with 22 points on 9-of-10 shooting in Friday's win over the Clippers, adding four rebounds, two steals and two triples. He apparently likes playing against the Clippers, as had 22 points against them on Dec. 9 as well. Markieff Morris (groin) returned from a one-game absence tonight, but he played 21 minutes compared to 24 for Scott. He's been coming on really strong lately and may have turned this position battle into a timeshare. He has seven 3-pointers combined over his last four games and is trending up for deep-league owners.

Mike Scott will move back to the bench against the Clippers on Friday. Markieff Morris is going to start, but don't forget Scott went off against the Clippers over the weekend. It's possible this is a timeshare for now, but Scott is still tough to count on while Morris is in the lineup.

Mike Scott made his first start of the season on Wednesday, posting 10 points, five rebounds, one block and a pair of 3-pointers in 27 minutes vs. the Grizzlies. Markieff Morris was a late scratch due to hip soreness, which bumped Scott up in the rotation. If Kieff misses more games, expect coach Scott Brooks to continue riding the hot hand -- Scott is a scorching 25-of-35 from the field (71.4%) over his past five games. Even so, his role is too unreliable to pick him up in most fantasy formats.

Scott contributed 10 points (4-7 FG, 2-4 3Pt), five rebounds and one block across 27 minutes during a 93-87 win over the Grizzlies on Wednesday. Scott received the start with Markieff Morris (hip) sidelined and posted an average stat line. It is unclear at this time how seriously Morris is hurt, but if he is forced to miss time, Scott could be a decent source of three-pointers and rebounds. He's not normally the most consistent performer, however.

Scott will start Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies. The Wizards ruled out Markieff Morris (hip) out just before tip-off, and Scott will get the nod at power forward in his place. Expect Scott, as well as Kelly Oubre, to pick up increased minutes against a depleted Grizzlies team. Scott had eight points and five rebounds in Tuesday's loss to Brooklyn.

Mike Scott will start Wednesday's game in place of Markieff Morris (sore right hip). This will be Scott's first start of the season, and he's an interesting option as a DFS punt, given his rock-bottom price in most leagues. He's not a great pickup in standard leagues, though, as long as Morris is day-to-day.

Mike Scott made 9-of-11 from the field for 22 points with eight rebounds, two assists and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes against the Clippers on Saturday. He played down the stretch and he was a key offensive contributor to help the Wizards score 31 in the fourth. Scott had made 8-of-8 from the field in his previous two games over 28 minutes combined, so he certainly was able to carry that momentum in this tough loss. Scott isn't going to stay this hot, so really the big takeaway here is Markieff Morris' leash could be a little shorter.

Mike Scott hit 5-of-8 shots and a 3-pointer for 12 points, five rebounds, two assists and two steals in 20 minutes on Tuesday. He didn't even play on Saturday, but had 13 points and three 3-pointers in his previous game. As long as Markieff Morris and Kelly Oubre are healthy, Scott has no fantasy value, but he has been surprisingly good this season when given an opportunity.

Mike Scott returned to the rotation on Wednesday with 13 points, four rebounds and one turnover in 19 minutes of action. Scott made 5-of-7 shots, including a 3-of-5 mark from downtown, but this comes on the heels of a DNP-CD on Monday. He's a matchup-based special and there's too much risk to even try streaming him.

Mike Scott came off the bench and hit 6-of-8 shots and three 3-pointers for a season-high 15 points and five rebounds in 26 minutes of Monday's easy win over the Kings. With the exception of Jodie Meeks and Markieff Morris, the Wizards shot it lights-out tonight and Scott has now scored in double digits in two straight games. Both of those games were lopsided scores and Scott got 25.5 minutes in those two after getting just eight minutes of run in each of his previous two games. Just keep an eye on him in case this isn't somehow a fluke.
