F - PHI - OUT
Sixers F Mike Scott (knee) is listed as out on the 76ers injury report ahead of Wednesday's contest versus the Wizards.
Scott's missed each of the first three games of the bubble restart due to soreness in his right knee. His next opportunity to suit up for the Sixers will be Friday against the Orlando Magic.
Sixers forward Mike Scott has been ruled out of Monday's game against the Spurs due to right knee soreness.
Monday will mark the second consecutive game Scott will miss due to the knee soreness. With Glenn Robinson III (hip) also doubtful, Mattise Thybulle and Alec Burks should be in line to receive some more run on Monday, however, they each received only 12 minutes of playing time in Saturday's loss to the Pacers with Robinson III and Scott sidelined. Scott's next chance to return comes on Wednesday against the Wizards.
Sixers forward Mike Scott has been downgraded to out for Saturday's match-up against the Pacers due to right knee soreness.
Scott was listed as questionable earlier today due to soreness in his right knee and it appears it's severe enough to keep him out of Saturday's game. With Glenn Robinson III (hip) also ruled out, Mattise Thybulle and Alec Burks are candidates to see extended run off the bench for the Sixers. Scott should be considered questionable for Monday's game against the Spurs.
Mike Scott scored nine points (3-8 FG, 2-4 3PT, 1-2 FT), with 10 rebounds, and three assists across 33 minutes in Saturday night’s disappointing loss to Golden State.
Scott has now started the last three games for the Sixers as Joel Embiid sits with the shoulder injury. In those three starts, Scott is averaging 10.7 points, 8.3 rebounds, and three assists in 32 minutes per game. His major flaw is that he doesn’t provide fantasy owners with any steals or blocks, recording exactly zero of either in those three games. The Mike Scott experiment is about to come to a grinding halt next week, as Philadelphia will most likely get Embiid back, plus they only play two games next week. Scott is a drop candidate in most leagues where owners picked him up for this short stretch.
Mike Scott provided 11 points (5-10 FG, 1-3 3PT) seven rebounds, four assists and one turnover across 25 minutes in Thursday's 125-108 win over the Kings.
Scott has started the past two games and has produced solid lines in both starts. He is averaging 11.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 2.5 triples during that stretch. Scott can be used as a streamer with Embiid sidelined, but is mainly an option in deep-league formats. The 76ers next scheduled game is Saturday, away against the Warriors.
