Tomas Satoransky's quiet postseason continued on Sunday with one rebound and no other stats in six minutes.
Satoransky had a breakout season in 2017-18, including averages of 10.4 points, 5.8 assists, 4.4 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 30 starts. He even played 16.8 minutes as a reserve, but has seen his role usurped by newcomer Ty Lawson over the past three games. Lawson also finished this game scoreless in 15 minutes, and neither guy can be trusted in DFS while the Wizards' starting backcourt is healthy. Apr 22 - 9:13 PM

Tomas Satoransky made a fill-in start on Wednesday and had 13 points, nine rebounds, four assists and one 3-pointer in 42 minutes of action.

John Wall was resting tonight, so as usual Satoransky got the fill-in start. He has completely overshadowed Tim Frazier (scoreless in 11 minutes) and could have low-end value even with Wall healthy next season -- if nothing else, he'll be a terrific handcuff in deeper leagues.
Apr 11 - 11:31 PM

Tomas Satoransky and Kelly Oubre will be in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Magic.

It looks like John Wall (rest) and Otto Porter (leg) will be sitting this one out, putting both Satoransky and Oubre on the DFS radar, with Satoransky being the more attractive target. Joining these two in the starting five will be Bradley Beal, Markieff Morris and Marcin Gortat.

Tomas Satoransky moved into the starting lineup on Friday vs. the Hawks, but only scored eight points with five rebounds and two assists in 29 minutes.

This was a letdown from Satoransky, but no one besides Bradley Beal played particularly well in the humiliating loss. Wall should be back for Tuesday's game vs. Boston, but Satoransky may get one more chance to start on Wednesday vs. the Magic on the second night of a back-to-back. He's safe to drop with three days off, though.
Apr 6 - 10:07 PM

Tomas Satoransky is the probable starter vs. Atlanta on Friday.

John Wall is not expected to play and we'll get an official word on that in the next two hours. Satoransky gets what should be his last start, and he'll be a no-brainer drop with three days off after today.

Tomas Satoransky had nine points, six assists, five rebounds, one 3-pointer and one block in 32 minutes on Sunday.

John Wall (rest) wasn't playing in the second of back-to-back games, which enabled Satoransky to earn another start at PG. It's unclear how much rest Wall might get down the stretch, but the Wizards do have two more back-to-back sets coming on Apr. 5-6 and Apr. 10-11. Either way, Satoransky should get enough run with the second unit to be worth holding.
Apr 1 - 6:02 PM

Tomas Satoransky will be back in the starting lineup on Sunday vs. the Bulls.

As expected, John Wall (knee) will be rested on the second game of a back-to-back set. Satoransky still played 26 minutes on Saturday off the bench and that includes some minutes next to Wall. He's a strong play on Sunday, but if he continues to see minutes in the 20s then he certainly has enough upside to hold decent value for the rest of the season.
Apr 1 - 11:25 AM

Tomas Satoransky scored six points with three rebounds, four assists and one steal in 26 minutes off the bench against the Hornets on Saturday.

It's very important to note that Sato did get minutes next to John Wall in the first half. Satoransky was very aggressive in drives, and it's fair to think he can find himself getting minutes in the 21-27 range most days. He's efficient enough that he may still hold some value, but feel free to drop him if he's one of your bottom-five players. The combo guard does play on Sunday and Wall is out for that one, so most of his owners will want to see how that game pans out before making a roster call.
Mar 31 - 6:31 PM

John Wall (knee) will replace Tomas Satoransky in the starting lineup Saturday vs. the Hornets.

It was a nice run for Satoransky. He ended up starting 27 consecutive games while Wall recovered from knee surgery and averaged 10.4 points, 4.2 rebounds, 6.0 assists and 1.1 steals over those 27 starts. He'll get one more start on Sunday, as the Wiz don't want Wall playing on the back end of a back-to-back.
Mar 31 - 2:29 PM

Tomas Satoransky made 4-of-8 from the field for 11 points with five rebounds, six assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes against the Heat on Thursday.

This has pretty much been the Sato special with strong efficiency, light usage and other stats to go with it. It'll be interesting to see if he can slide over to play some SG again, but the Wizards are probably going to give him 20-24 minutes at PG even with John Wall back on Saturday. With a back-to-back coming up, Sato's owners in daily leagues may want to just roll him out there for those two before making a move.
Mar 29 - 9:28 PM

The Wizards lost at home to the Knicks on Sunday, despite Tomas Satoransky contributing nine points, 10 assists, four rebounds, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer.

Satoransky is a steady source of assists and steals, yet this is just the third time all season he's dropped double-digit dimes -- and the second time all season he's had at least three steals. John Wall (knee surgery) recently practiced without limitations and could conceivably return as soon as Tuesday's home game vs. San Antonio, but Satoransky did say after tonight's game that the Wizards "still have two more games without [Wall]." That's not the same as an injury update, but it still gives Satoransky's owners hope for more games with unfettered playing time.
Mar 25 - 9:31 PM

Tomas Satoransky scored seven points with four rebounds, six assists and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes against the Nuggets on Friday.

His minutes did take a slight hit with the Wizards rolling with some no-PG lineups. John Wall is going to need to be in a "handful" of practices to return, so Satoransky likely has value for at least one or two more games.
Mar 23 - 9:52 PM

Tomas Satoransky was scoreless on 0-of-8 shooting vs. the Spurs on Wednesday, finishing with six assists, six rebounds and one steal in 32 minutes.

It's still unclear when John Wall (knee surgery) might return, although he's hoping to resume 5-on-5 workouts by the end of the week. The Wizards will take every precaution with him, including likely DNPs during their remaining back-to-back sets, which helps bolster Satoransky's rest-of-season outlook. This was his first scoreless game since mid-January, and for now owners can keep plugging him into lineups.
Mar 22 - 12:21 AM

Tomas Satoransky made 6-of-12 from the field for 12 points with five rebounds, eight assists and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes against the Pacers on Saturday.

So what's going to happen when John Wall comes back? Satoransky has been too good at the point, and maybe the team tried to find him more minutes at SG like they were earlier in his career. Wall is still likely going to have extensive limits once he's back and that may be due to Sato helping out. The bad news is the Wizards are off for three days after this game, but his owners may want to hold on unless they really need games right now.
Mar 17 - 10:17 PM

Tomas Satoransky posted 10 points, six assists, two rebounds and two steals in a double-OT win vs. Boston on Wednesday.

Satoransky navigated foul trouble to carve out a decent line for fantasy owners, but the bigger issue is the pending return of John Wall (knee). Wall went through an "extensive workout" on Tuesday and can be viewed as day-to-day at this point, although sitting out on Saturday would give him four days' extra rest before Wednesday's road game in San Antonio. Either way, the clock is ticking for Satoransky.
