Not much has changed for Atlanta Hawks second-round pick Mike Muscala since our last update. He continues to put up solid numbers even though Rio Natura Monbus continues to struggle in league play.
Monbus dropped two more games in the past week despite more solid showings from Muscala. Last Saturday's matchup with Estudiantes would have been the first matchup between Muscala and first round draft pick Lucas Nogueira who remains sidelined due to tendinitis in his knees. Estudiantes came away with a 97-85 win and Muscala finished with 12 points and five rebounds on 5-8 shooting.
Monbus dropped their fourth straight game yesterday with a 80-71 loss to Cajasol Banca Civica. Muscala finished tied for the team lead in points with 15 and grabbed nine more rebounds. Marcus Landry finished with 21 to lead Cajasol.
Despite his team's struggles, Muscala continues to have a solid rookie season in the Liga Endesa. He leads the league in rebounding at 8.3 a game and is averaging 14 points on 49 percent shooting.
