Tomas Satoransky started for John Wall (rest) on Saturday during a 106-95 loss to the Bulls, scoring 12 points with four rebounds, nine assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes.
This guy needs more minutes. He's a very good defender for a rookie and he has the size to play the one, two or three. John Wall will get at least one more game off on Wednesday or Thursday, so we'll see Satoransky in the starting lineup again. Plus, there is a very, very good chance he becomes the top bench option. He might be the favorite, actually. Nov 12 - 11:46 PM

With John Wall (rest) out, Tomas Satoransky will start for the Wizards on Saturday vs. Chicago.

With John Wall being held out as a precaution by the Wizards' medical staff for the second time during a back-to-back, Satoransky should see 30+ minutes on Saturday. He scored eight points and dished out three assists in 32 minutes in his previous start. Unlike his first start, when Satoransky had Bradley Beal to play off in the backcourt, he could be paired with Marcus Thornton instead. Beal missed Friday's game because of tightness in his right thigh and is questionable vs. the Bulls.

Tomas Satoransky scored eight points with two rebounds, two assists, one steal and one turnover in 20 minutes against the Cavs on Friday.

He'll likely be back in the starting lineup on Saturday with John Wall (rest) out. In his first start, Satoransky played 32 minutes with eight points, two rebounds, three dimes and one steal. Bradley Beal (hamstring) was out there for that one, so Satoransky could be running even more offense. He'll be an interesting stream or DFS punt.
Nov 12 - 12:34 AM

Tomas Satoransky will return to the bench for Monday's matchup with the Rockets.

Satoransky got his first career start on Saturday with Wall resting, but he was always expected to return to the bench on Monday. Satoransky could be worth a DFS look on the nights Wall is rested, but he's not worth owning in most season-long settings.
Nov 7 - 6:37 PM

Tomas Satoransky made his first NBA start for John Wall (rest) against the Magic on Saturday, scoring eight points with two rebounds, three assists and one steal in 32 minutes.

He picked up all of the point guard minutes without Wall on Friday and even played six minutes next to him in that game, too. Satoranksy is 6'7" and came up as more of a shooting guard, so you can see his post-up game as an offensive staple a la Shaun Livingston. John Wall (rest) will be back, but expect Satoransky to get the next start on a back-to-back.
Nov 5 - 9:40 PM

Coach Scott Brooks confirmed Tomas Satoransky will start against the Magic on Saturday.

John Wall (rest) is getting the night off, so it'll be Satoransky at the point. He played all of the non-Wall point guard minutes on Friday and saw close to 10 minutes next to each starter last night, too. Satoransky should be fun to watch and is a nice streak/DFS option.
Nov 5 - 5:36 PM

Tomas Satoransky played 22 minutes against the Hawks on Friday with four points, three rebounds, one assist and three turnovers.

He was the first guard off the bench and subbed in for John Wall to run point in the second unit. The Wizards have talked a lot about his energy, and his unconventional style should fit with the rest of the second unit. If you're in a super deep league, give him a look. He's a very attractive DFS play with Wall resting on Saturday.
Nov 4 - 9:49 PM

Wizards coach Scott Brooks hinted that Tomas Satoransky might replace Trey Burke in the rotation.

Burke has struggled mightily over the Wizards first few games. As a result, he has seen his playing time dip accordingly. Burke played just six minutes and failed to score a point or dish out a single assist in Washington's loss to Toronto on Wednesday. Coach Brooks played Satoransky in a three-guard lineup on Wednesday. It is something we may start seeing more of. "It's definitely something that's going to be considered," Brooks said. "Tomas brings a lot of energy and he brings some toughness. He's played that position his entire life. ... I'm not giving up on anybody on our team but I have to continue to find a second unit that's going to continue to move the scoreboard and compete on the defensive end."
Nov 4 - 11:20 AM

Coach Scott Brooks hinted Tomas Satoransky could get more minutes in the rotation.

That would likely mean Trey Burke would get the bump. Satoransky played 10 minutes on Wednesday and has been turning heads since the preseason. He is a combo guard and have size at 6'7". He's worth watching in deep leagues.
Nov 3 - 5:26 PM

Tomas Satoransky scored 10 points in 40 minutes on Thursday, adding six rebounds, six assists, two steals and one turnover.

He ran the point a lot during this game and coach Scott Brooks seems to have a lot of confidence in the rookie. Satoransky is already becoming a fan favorite for his through-the-leg dunks in warmups, but he has his work cut out for himself to get regular season minutes.
Oct 6 - 11:38 PM

After making his preseason debut on Wednesday, Tomas Satoransky said that he's not scared to go up against anyone in the NBA.

"I was very excited to be there playing my first preseason game for an NBA team," said Satoransky. "Tried to show off a little bit, gain a little respect because that’s what it’s all about in this league. Not to be scared of anyone." Satoransky did play well during his 31 minutes of action, but there's no way he can get anywhere near that minutes total during the regular season when the team is at full strength. He's just a deep league flier at the moment.
Oct 5 - 1:21 PM

Wizards rookie Tomas Satoransky played well in 31 minutes on Tuesday, chipping in eight points, five rebounds, six assists, one steal and two turnovers vs. the Heat.

Satoransky is expected to earn minutes at PG, SG and SF this season, with coach Scott Brooks describing him as a "jack of all trades." He looked confident and controlled tonight, but his fantasy outlook isn't enticing with John Wall, Trey Burke, Bradley Beal, Marcus Thornton, Otto Porter and Kelly Oubre soaking up available minutes.
Oct 4 - 9:54 PM

Tomas Satoransky is expected to spend time at the one, two and three for the Wizards this season.

"I think that’s going to be his strength in this league, it’s being able to guard multiple players and play different spots on offense," Wizards coach Scott Brooks said. "I think he has the ability to be a jack-of-all trades and he’s going to be able to play all three spots." Satoransky has impressed the Wizards with his versatility and athleticism during camp, and it sounds like he's a dark horse to crack the rotation on opening night. For now, he's just on the radar in deeper leagues.
Sep 30 - 11:30 AM

Scott Brooks said that in addition to earning some time at shooting guard, Tomas Satoransky will compete for minutes at small forward position as well.

Satoransky will be fighting for reserve minutes with the likes of Trey Burke, Marcus Thornton and Kelly Oubre, so it'll be tough for him to establish himself as a worthwhile asset in most settings.
Sep 28 - 1:15 PM

Tomas Satoransky said that he wants to work on his 3-point shooting this summer.

"I think I’ve done a pretty good job lately too improve it, but still NBA is a different league," Satoransky said. "The game is quicker. For sure, it’s better athleticism in the NBA than what I’m used to Europe, so I’ll have to adjust as soon as possible for that." He shot 44 percent from deep for Barcelona in Spain’s ACB League last season, but the 24-year-old guard will have to compete for minutes off the bench with Trey Burke and Marcus Thornton and likely won't have much fantasy value.
