Just another uneventful year in Los Angeles...

Mike Muscala was cooking on Wednesday night, scoring 17 points on 5-of-7 shooting in only 14 minutes of action.
Muscala knocked down 4-of-6 threes to do his damage. He remains a quality stretch big for fantasy purposes and should threaten top-200 numbers given the state of OKC's depth chart up front.

Mike Muscala has signed with the Thunder on a two-year, $4.31 million deal with a player option.
Muscala could step in with the Thunder to be their stretch four behind Danilo Gallinari or back up Steven Adams. He could potentially earn some minutes especially with Jeremi Grant no longer on the team. He averaged around 20 mpg in his last two seasons with the Lakers and Hawks, providing threes and blocks that were useful to deep-league owners.

Thunder GM Sam Presti anounced on Wednesday that the team has signed forward/center Mike Muscala.
Muscala split last season between the Sixers and the Lakers, appearing in 64 games (10 starts) and averaging 7.0 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 20.4 minutes per game. He will provide some much needed depth for a Thunder team that just traded away Jerami Grant to the Nuggets. Oklahoma is on the verge of blowing the entire team up so it’s not out of question that Muscala earns significant minutes next year.

Mike Muscala has reached an agreement with the Thunder, per Adrian Wojnarowski.
No terms of the deal have been released. The Thunder were hoping that Patrick Patterson would be their stretch four but it hasn't worked out, so Muscala will try and step in to fill that void. He also provides some extra rim protection, and deep-league fantasy owners should keep him in mind should Steven Adams suffer any injuries. The stat set has always been there but the playing time hasn't.

Mike Muscala scored 16 points on 6-of-10 shooting (including four threes) with five rebounds and one block over 35 minutes in the Lakers' finale on Tuesday.
Muscala finally got some run in the final few games for the Lakers, but he only averaged 14.3 mpg after getting traded to them by the Sixers. He played in some pretty unique situations in both Philly and L.A. in terms of ball dominant players, so his top 225-250 returns in 20.4 mpg (as well as his five-point drop in field goal shooting) have some room to grow.

Mike Muscala started and logged 38 minutes in Sunday's win over the Jazz, scoring 16 points on 6-of-10 shooting (including four threes) with eight rebounds and one block.
Muscala is trending up and could be in for a big workload in Tuesday's finale.

Mike Muscala was productive with nine points (3-of-7 shooting), six rebounds, one assist, one trey and three blocks in Friday's win over the Clippers.
Muscala has been flirting with top-75 value over the last week and remains one of the more solid options for multi-cat contributions from the PF and C positions down the stretch.

LeBron James (groin) is probable to play on Friday vs. the Hornets.
James has missed a few games due to questionable injury calls but it looks like he’s planning on playing in this one. Mike Muscala (tibialis posterior tendonitis) is also probable though he’s not looking at much time on the court.

Mike Muscala (tibialis posterior tendinitis) is available for Wednesday's game against the Jazz
Muscala will likely compete with Moritz Wagner in the backup PF slot tonight, and could be a deep league source for threes.

Mike Muscala (tibialis posterior tendinitis) is expected to play on Wednesday night.
Muscala should see some additional touches with LeBron out of the lineup, but there is not a lot to get excited about from a fantasy perspective. He's a deep-league streaming option at best.

Mike Muscala (tibialis posterior tendinitis) is questionable to play on Wednesday night.
Muscala was also questionable for Tuesday but ended up sitting out. If healthy, he figures to play so the front office can show people that they didn't give Ivica Zubac away for free, but there's minimal appeal here.
