    Mike Scott will start in place of Joel Embiid on Saturday night.

    Embiid's out with a left hip contusion and Scott will have a chance to put up some numbers in a cake matchup. Fire away in DFS.

    Joel Embiid will miss Wednesday's game against the Magic due to left knee soreness.

    It sounds like this is a load management situation for Embiid. He should be back shortly, but in the meantime Mike Scott and Kyle O'Quinn are likely to see more time on the court.

    Al Horford will be rested on Tuesday as the Sixers take on the Cavs.

    The Sixers are just being careful with Horford as they navigate the long season. Expect Mike Scott to receive more opportunities on Tuesday.

    Joel Embiid and Karl Anthony-Towns were both suspended two games for the incident that occurred during Wednesday's game.

    Embiid has had a great start to the season and there is no worry that this won't continue after he serves his suspension. Mike Scott, Kyle O'Quinn and Jonah Bolden may see an increased role while the team will likely lean on the other four starters to help carry the load during Embiid's absence. Scott in particular is an interesting DFS play as a low-priced option. Continue to monitor the situation to see who they start as they may shift Al Horford to center and insert Scott off the bench to start at power forward.

    Mike Scott was ejected for committing a flagrant 2 foul vs. the Hawks in the second quarter on Monday.

    Scott gave Damian Jones a shove on a fast break, so he'll end his night with one rebound and having missed both of his shots in nine minutes. The foul wasn't too egregious, so there's unlikely to be any further punishment.

    Mike Scott scored 17 points on 5-of-7 shooting, adding five 3-pointers, three rebounds and an assist in Saturday's win.

    Scott chipped in five of six 3-pointers this evening without doing much else. The scoring is nice, as are the 3-pointers, so hopefully we'll see more of him now that he's over his ankle injury.

    Mike Scott (left ankle sprain) has been upgraded to probable for Saturday's game against the Pistons.

    Scott played 16 minutes with six points and six rebounds on Sixers' opening night and appears to be in line for the same role he played last season. It is unclear at which point he suffered the injury but it does not appear to be too serious. With Embiid ruled out for this one, Scott may see an increased role if he plays with Al Horford getting more minutes at center but he still shouldn't be a target in fantasy.

    Mike Scott is questionable to play in Detroit on Saturday due to a left ankle sprain.

    Scott got this injury back on Wednesday and was only able to do individual work at practice on Friday. Joel Embiid is also questionable for Saturday leaving the Sixers undermanned on the back line. If that is the case we will see an increased dose of Al Horford and possibly Kyle O'Quinn.

    The Jazz waived Isaac Haas and Mike Scott on Friday.

    Neither player appeared in a preseason game and were signed in order to be eligible for some G League bonuses for Exhibit 10 players.

    The Jazz have signed free agent point guard Mike Scott to a one-year contract, according to Nicola Lupo of Sportando.

    Scott spent last season playing in Poland after going undrafted out of the University of Idaho in 2016. The Jazz are already loaded at point guard with Mike Conley, Dante Exum, Emmanuel Mudiay and Nigel Williams-Goss all capable of manning the position, so the team could be signing Scott for the sole purpose of locking him down for their G League affiliate.

    Sunday, in an incident that is likely to be reviewed by the league, Mike Scott got into a physical altercation with an Eagles fan outside of Lincoln Financial Field.

    In the video link you can view Scott, wearing a Redskins jersey, getting into a scrap with an Eagles fan in the parking lot outside of Lincoln Financial Field. It does not look like he is injured during the mixup, but the incident could result in a fine or suspension by the NBA. Scott is not expected to be much of a fantasy asset this season, but keep him in mind if his role with the Sixers were to expand.

    The Sixers have announced the re-signing of Mike Scott.

    Scott returns to Philly on a two-year deal worth $9.8 million. Hopefully Scott's Tots get their tuition checks now. The Threegional Manager gives Philly a scoring lift as a stretch four off the bench and is a nice piece that gives their second unit a different dynamic. There could be deep-league value depending on how the rotation shakes out, but it's unlikely to be anything too exciting.

    Mike Scott has agreed to return to Philadelphia on a two-year, $9.8 million deal according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

    Scott proved to be a valuable bench piece for a Sixers team who needed second unit scoring wherever they could find it. He is now set to return on a modest deal that should allow Philadelphia to continue piecing together the rest of their roster. Scott figures to have more real life value for his team than he will fantasy value.

    Mike Scott checked in for 20 minutes off the bench on Thursday, scoring 11 points with three triples on 4-of-5 shooting.

    Scott is the obvious choice for Philadelphia's backup center spot, and he was a plus-29 in his run tonight. If the Raptors continue to use two traditional bigs it'll be very tough for them to cover Scott at the 3-point line. He might be in line for more minutes on Sunday night.
