Scott was quizzed directly about Ablett’s availability on AFL 360.
“Is Ablett playing Sunday?” host Gerard Whateley asked.
“Yeah, he’ll be fine,” Scott said.
“So let’s — no, no, I’ll just say it: he’s playing.”
Ablett come to the Cats from Gold Coast over the off-season, with pick 19 and this year's second round pick going to the Suns.
The Cats also got pick 24 and this year's fourth round pick from the Suns.

Ablett went on to win another Brownlow, two more Leigh Matthews Medals and four more All-Australian selections in his time at the Suns.
