Thunder's Mike Muscala: Starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muscala is in the starting lineup Sunday against the Wizards.

With both Steven Adams and Nerlens Noel sitting, Muscala is the Thunder's last option at center. He should be set for extended minutes after missing the previous two games with a concussion.

Thunder's Mike Muscala: Off injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muscala (concussion) is off the injury report ahead of Sunday's contest against the Wizards.

Muscala has recovered from a concussion, and he might step into an expanded role right away Sunday, as Steven Adams (lower leg) will be sidelined. Nerlens Noel is the more likely candidate to draw a second consecutive start at center, however.

Thunder's Mike Muscala: Out again Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muscala (concussion) won't play Friday against Memphis.

Muscala sustained the concussion earlier in the week, and Friday will mark his second consecutive absence. He'll need to clear the league's concussion protocol before returning.

Thunder's Mike Muscala: Out vs. Lakers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muscala (concussion) won't play Wednesday against the Lakers.

Muscala left Monday's contest against the Nuggets with concussion-like symptoms, and he's been placed in the NBA's protocol. As a result, he will not be available Wednesday against the Lakers, with his next chance to play coming Friday against the Grizzlies. In his stead, we could see more minutes handed to Nerlens Noel, Darius Bazley and various other frontcourt options.

Thunder's Mike Muscala: Leaves with concussion symptoms
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muscala will not return to Monday's game against the Nuggets due to concussion-like symptoms, Erik Horne of The Athletic reports.

Muscala exited the game late in the first quarter after taking a hit to the head. He'll likely enter the league's concussion protocol and could miss a game or two as the seeding round progresses. Prior to leaving the game, Muscala played just one minute and knocked down his only three-point attempt.

Thunder's Mike Muscala: Scoreless in five minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muscala finished with one rebound, one assist and one steal in five minutes during Tuesday's 109-94 loss to the Clippers.

Muscala made just his fifth appearance since the beginning of February and has earned double-digit minutes just once during this recent stretch. He's avoidable in all fantasy formats.

Thunder's Mike Muscala: Left out of rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muscala (coach's decision) didn't see the floor during Wednesday's 109-103 win over the Cavaliers.

Muscala was a healthy scratch while Steven Adams started and saw 30 minutes and Nerlens Noel earned the remaining 18 minutes at center off the bench. Muscala had combined for seven minutes across his last two appearances, and he's really only worth considering on nights when Adams or Noel doesn't suit up.

Thunder's Mike Muscala: Scores 11 in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muscala had 11 points (3-6 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, two assists and one steal in 25 minutes during Saturday's 113-104 win over the Timberwolves.

Muscala was helpless to guard Karl-Anthony Towns throughout most of this game, allowing Towns to put up 19 of the Timberwolves' 22 first-quarter points. Steven Adams returned from an ankle issue in this game, but saw limited run. Although Adams returned, things didn't get much easier for the Thunder, as Nerlens Noel missed this one after facial surgery. Noel's status will be updated again next week, but at the moment, it doesn't look like a long-term issue. His return to health will render Muscala expendable in plenty of leagues.

Thunder's Mike Muscala: Cools off with six points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muscala scored six points (2-5 FG, 2-5 3Pt) in a loss to the Heat on Friday, adding two rebounds and one assist in 27 minutes.

One game after posting solid numbers by his own standards, Muscala fell back down to earth with Nerlens Noel returning from an ankle sprain. Steven Adams went down with a knee bruise in their last game, but, with Noel back in the fold, Muscala's time in the spotlight was likely short-lived. He should still get decent minutes off the bench, but it's difficult to trust Muscala as anything more than an emergency plan.

Thunder's Mike Muscala: Scores 11 off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muscala had 11 points (4-10 FG, 3-8 3Pt), three boards, three assists and one block in 19 minutes of a 117-104 win against Minnesota on Monday.

Muscala posted double-digit points for just the second time this season, thanks mostly to attempting and making his second most three attempts on the year. Muscala is averaging just 2.6 three-point attempts per game, so the increase is more likely an aberration instead of a sign of things to come.

Thunder's Mike Muscala: Hauls in eight rebounds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muscala compiled six points (2-8 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, one assist and one steal in 17 minutes during Tuesday's 111-103 overtime win against the Nets.

Muscala finished with a season high in rebounding and has combined to play 30 minutes across the last two contests while Nerlens Noel (ankle) has been sidelined. It's unclear whether Noel could be ready to return for Thursday's matchup versus the Rockets, but if not Muscala will likely continue to operate as the primary backup center behind Steven Adams.

Thunder's Mike Muscala: Grabs three boards in 11 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muscala managed zero points (0-2 FG, 0-2 3Pt) and three rebounds in 11 minutes during Thursday's 110-97 loss to the Grizzlies.

Muscala saw double-digit minutes for the third time in his last six appearances. With that being said, he has appeared in just seven games here in December while being a healthy scratch five times. As a result, Muscala is at best a dart throw in daily leagues heading into Friday's matchup versus the Hornets.

Thunder's Mike Muscala: Left out of the loop versus Pacers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muscala (DNP-Coach's Decision) didn't appear in Wednesday's 107-100 loss to the Pacers.

Muscala has seen single-digit minutes in three of his last four appearances, and he has played in just 13 of the team's 20 games thus far this season. He's firmly behind Steven Adams and Nerlens Noel on the center depth chart, while Danilo Gallinari and Darius Bazley have been playing most of the power forward minutes. Unless Muscala reclaims a regular role in the rotation, he can likely be avoided across most fantasy formats.

Thunder's Mike Muscala: Plays season-high 21 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muscala provided seven points (3-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt), five rebounds, two steals and one assist in Friday's 130-127 loss to the Lakers.

With Nerlens Noel (illness) unavailable in the game, the Thunder called upon Muscala to take some of Noel's minutes. The 28-year-old's playing time this season has been sporadic this season, with playing time ranging from one minute to 21 minutes. Due to his inconsistent playing time, Muscala's fantasy value is limited at best.

Thunder's Mike Muscala: Scorches nets from distance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muscala tallied a season-high 12 points (4-9 FG, 4-9 3Pt) to go with three rebounds and three assists in 18 minutes off the bench Sunday in the Thunder's 121-119 loss to the Bucks.

Muscala has cracked the rotation in the past two games and shot well in both contests, drilling seven of his 14 attempts from distance. He'll face a potential playing-time crunch once Steven Adams shakes off a minor knee injury, but Muscala's hot shooting could be enough to keep him in the rotation as a fourth big man over rookie Darius Bazley.

Thunder's Mike Muscala: Logs one minute in Thursday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muscala (hand) went scoreless in one minute during Thursday's 121-112 loss to the Spurs.

Muscala was active despite suffering a hand injury in Tuesday's win over the Magic. However, the 28-year-old big man was a total non-factor in this one. It's possible Muscala's hand was still bothering him, and perhaps that's why he saw limited action. Nevertheless, this is already the third time through seven appearances that he has seen just single-digit minutes.

Thunder's Mike Muscala: Available Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muscala (hand) is available to play in Thursday's contest against San Antonio, Maddie Lee of The Oklahoman reports.

Muscala logged four minutes in Tuesday's win over the Magic before coming down with a hand injury. The injury will be short-lived though, as Muscala is reportedly active for the Thunder on Thursday.

Thunder's Mike Muscala: Misses practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muscala (hand) did not practice Wednesday, Erik Horne of The Athletic reports.

Muscala was held out of Wednesday's non-contact session due to a hand injury, which he apparently picked up during Tuesday's win over the Magic. The big man should be tentatively considered questionable for Thursday's game against the Spurs, with an update regarding his status likely coming closer to game-time.

Thunder's Mike Muscala: Scores 17 points in 14 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muscala scored 17 points (5-7 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT) in 14 minutes during Wednesday's 124-119 loss to the Grizzlies.

Muscala didn't contribute beyond scoring and threes, apart from committing two turnovers. He's a good bet to hold down the fort as a floor-spacing backup big capable of operating at power forward and center, but expecting much else besides the occasional hot night offensively is likely a recipe for disappointment.

Thunder's Mike Muscala: Latches on with Oklahoma City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muscala and the Thunder came to terms Sunday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Muscala spent time with the Lakers and 76ers a season ago, averaging seven points along with 3.8 rebounds and 1.2 assists over 64 contests. He appears to be headed for a bench role with the Thunder and figures to compete with Patrick Patterson and Jerami Grant for playing time.
