2018 Fantasy Outlook
Scott matched a career high of 18.5 minutes per game in his first season with Washington, allowing him to average three-year bests of 8.8 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.1 assists across 76 games. Most notably, Scott provided a floor-stretching presence in the frontcourt, as the 6-foot-8 big man hit just under a three-pointer per game at an impressive 40.5 percent clip. His 66 total three-pointers also matched a career high and that's earned him a look with the Clippers after the Wizards opted to let him leave during free agency. Scott should slot in as a deep reserve at power forward and he'll likely struggle to see significant minutes behind the likes of Tobias Harris, Luc Mbah a Moute and Montrezl Harrell. That said, if injuries strike the roster, Scott could become a deep ball specialist in deeper leagues. Read Past Outlooks

April 25, 2019
Scott (heel) did not participate in Thursday's practice and is considered day-to-day, Rich Hofmann of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Scott was forced to leave Tuesday's Game 5 against the Nets with a bruised right heel and did not return. With the 76ers just two days away from the start of their second-round series against Toronto, Scott's absence from practice surely isn't a good sign. If Scott is also unable to give it a go Friday, then serious doubt regarding his Game 1 status will surely set in.

2012
Scott entered last season with his status with the Hawks on shaky ground due to a felony drug charge, and despite that case still being outstanding, it didn't deter the power forward from turning in a productive year off the bench. Though he saw his court time decline for a third consecutive campaign, Scott developed into a more efficient scorer, highlighted by a 39.2 percent success rate from downtown. Since he's not much of an asset on the defensive end, Scott’s value going forward will hinge on his ability to prove that his improved accuracy from three-point range wasn't a fluke. Unfortunately, even if he's able to come close to replicating his efforts in that department, Scott doesn't offer enough scoring or rebounding in his limited minutes to make much of an impact in the DFS or season-long fantasy realm. He's made just seven starts in 263 career games, and at 28 years old, it doesn't seem likely that Scott will be groomed for a top-unit role unless Paul Millsap succumbs to an injury.
In his third season, Scott tallied 7.8 points, 2.9 rebounds, 1.1 assists, and 0.4 steals in 17 minutes per game through 68 games. He shot 44 percent from the field, 34 percent from downtown, and 79 percent from the free-throw line. Despite Mike Muscala earning the nod over Scott during the final few games of the playoffs, it was Scott's best season of his career. Unfortunately, Scott was arrested on felony drug charges this summer and faces up to 25 years in prison. Given Muscala's late push past Scott in the postseason playing rotation and Scott's potential prison sentence, it's hard to justify drafting Scott in fantasy this season.
Pressed into service when Atlanta's frontcourt was decimated by injury, second-year pro Mike Scott became one of the Hawks more reliable options off the bench, appearing in 80 of 82 games and averaging 9.6 points in 19 minutes per game. A newfound three-point shot was a big factor in his success. Scott attempted just one three-pointer as a rookie and did not connect. In his second year, he attempted 2.5 three-pointers per game and hit them at a 31-percent clip. Scott was rewarded after the season with a three-year, $10 million contract to remain with the Hawks, but he'll be hard-pressed to replicate last season's success. The return of Al Horford and the addition of rookie Adreian Payne should make the Hawks frontcourt much deeper this year, which could push Scott down to third on the power forward depth chart.
Praised by Al Horford for being the team's "most improved player" in the offseason, Scott could play his way into more minutes if he continues at the current pace. He made nearly half his shots from the floor and shot a decent percentage from the charity stripe in his debut season, so the former Virginia product should see more minutes.
The Hawks have said they view Scott as a power forward, so he's likely to see only limited playing time if he does make the roster.
