According to Candace Buckner of the Washington Post, John Wall (knee surgery) "no longer needs crutches and shows no visible hitch in his walk."
It's been two weeks since his surgery, and while John Wall didn't reveal much, he hinted that he's still hoping to return between the 6- to 8-week mark. "I haven’t really tried to get back on the court yet so, just doing the little things. And I haven’t started running yet. So whenever I get to that point I can kind of start grasping stuff and understanding what level I’m at but right now it’s between six to eight weeks," he said. "It might be longer but I don’t know. I haven’t got to that point." We'll continue to track his progress every step of the way, but it's possible he returns in time to help his owners in the fantasy playoffs. Feb 19 - 10:59 AM

Tomas Satoransky (concussion) had multiple career-highs on Wednesday with 11 assists and three blocks, adding nine points, four rebounds and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes.

Satoransky survived a scary fall on Saturday, which is great news for a Wizards team still seeking PG help while John Wall (knee) recuperates. Even if they do bring back a veteran to fill out the rotation, it shouldn't impact Satoransky, who has a stranglehold on the starting job until Wall returns.
Feb 14 - 11:03 PM

Tomas Satoransky finished Thursday's tough overtime loss vs. Boston with 14 points, four rebounds, four assists, two blocks and one steal in 34 minutes.

There were some winners and losers at the trade deadline, but nothing dramatic enough to make you regret clinging to someone like Satoransky. His role is iron-clad with John Wall rehabbing from left knee surgery performed on Jan. 31 -- since that time, Satoransky has put up mid-round value with an emphasis on assists (5.0 per game), steals (2.0) and FT shooting (a perfect 11-of-11). He's a solid fantasy play with Wall out approximately 5-7 more weeks.
Feb 8 - 11:23 PM

Tomas Satoransky exploded for a career-high 19 points on Saturday to go along with three rebounds, six assists, two steals, and three triples on 7-of-9 shooting.

He did his damage in just 25 minutes. Including Saturday's performance, Satoransky has now averaged 11.0 points, 3.5 rebounds, 5.8 assists, 1.5 steals, and 1.5 3-pointers on 51.9% shooting since taking over for John Wall (knee surgery) in the starting lineup. Those are usable numbers, so those in need of point guard help should give Satoransky a long look.
Feb 3 - 9:51 PM

Bradley Beal went off for 18 points, eight rebounds, eight assists, two steals, and one block in just 31 minutes in Saturday's 115-98 win over Orlando.

Life without John Wall is looking just fine for Mr. Beal, thank you very much, as he's now averaged 7.0 assists per game since his running mate was forced to the sidelines. The Florida product also shot 8-of-15 from the field, and the only real knock on his night was that he didn't sink a single triple. Beal is locked and loaded as the clear No. 1 in Washington for the foreseeable future, so keep riding him up the standings and into the fantasy playoffs.
Feb 3 - 9:44 PM

Marcin Gortat notched a double-double against his former Magic team on Saturday, finishing with 10 points, 11 rebounds, and two blocks on 5-of-7 shooting.

Gortat more or less is what he is at this stage of his career, but at least he's seen 25 minutes or more in three straight games. Even with John Wall (knee surgery) out, there just isn't any upside here, so Gortat is much more appealing as the third center on fantasy rosters than anything more.
Feb 3 - 9:39 PM

Markieff Morris stayed hot in Saturday's win over Orlando, finishing with 16 points, three boards, three assists, and three steals on 7-of-10 shooting.

Morris might not be feeling his best physically, but you wouldn't know it from how he's played over the last five games. During that stretch, the former 13th overall selection has averaged 18.4 points, 6.0 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 1.4 steals, 1.6 3-pointers, and 1.6 turnovers on a blistering 34-of-58 (58.6%) from the field, including 16-of-17 from the charity stripe. Morris, who is eligible at three positions—including center on Yahoo— looks like a sneaky productive play while Kelly Oubre (six points, 2-of-10 shooting) continues to struggle and John Wall (knee surgery) is out.
Feb 3 - 9:36 PM

Tomas Satoransky will be in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Thunder, with John Wall (knee) unavailable.

Satoransky will get first dibs on the starting point guard position with Wall out for the next 6-8 weeks, so he's worth a look in deep leagues. In his previous start this season, Satoransky produced 11 points, seven assists and three rebounds. Tim Frazier will also have the opportunity for extended minutes, but he's been really inconsistent this year, so he's more of a wait-and-see guy.
Jan 30 - 6:44 PM

Markieff Morris (ankle) will start Wednesday vs. Charlotte.

Morris did not practice on Tuesday after rolling his ankle in Monday's loss to Milwaukee, but the ankle issue won't be anything that forces him to miss any game-time action. Joining Morris in the starting five will be John Wall, Bradley Beal, Otto Porter and Marcin Gortat.
Jan 17 - 6:11 PM

Wizards G Tomas Satoransky chipped in 10 points, two rebounds and one assist in 14 minutes on Wednesday, hitting 4-of-5 shots with a pair of 3-pointers.

Satoransky has quietly moved ahead of Tim Frazier (DNP-CD) for the Wizards' backup PG job. It doesn't have immediate implications, but John Wall's owners should keep it in mind in case he gets injured at some point.
Jan 3 - 11:47 PM

Bradley Beal will be in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Bulls.

Beal was spotted sporting a large ice pack on his left elbow while on the bench during Friday's win over Houston, but this isn't exactly an uncommon occurrence in the NBA, and it shouldn't be an issue that affects him today. The Wizards will go with their standard starting five today featuring John Wall, Beal, Otto Porter, Markieff Morris and Marcin Gortat.
Sun, Dec 31, 2017 03:19:00 PM

Tomas Satoransky played 25 minutes off the bench on Sunday, posting two points and three rebounds in a 106-99 loss to the Cavaliers.

Tim Frazier was a popular pickup when John Wall got hurt in late November, but Satoransky was the real winner -- he seems to have impressed the coaching staff enough to lock down the backup PG job. Frazier wound up as a DNP-CD tonight, and if you're looking for a handcuff for Wall, Satoransky is your guy.
Sun, Dec 17, 2017 10:18:00 PM

Tim Frazier headed back to the bench on Wednesday, where he went scoreless with two boards and two assists in five minutes.

Frazier failed to distinguish himself as a fill-in starter for John Wall (knee), finishing 11 starts with averages of 5.4 points, 4.2 assists, 3.1 rebounds and 0.9 steals. That makes him less appealing as a handcuff option, and most owners should confidently cut him loose.
Wed, Dec 13, 2017 11:51:00 PM

Bradley Beal exited Wednesday's game with a facial laceration, but he returned to finish with 21 points, four rebounds, one assist and one steal.

The image of a bloodied Beal walking off the court was awful for a Wizards team already missing John Wall (knee), so it was great to see him get back out there. He eventually fouled out in just 23 minutes, as the Wizards went all-in on hacking Ben Simmons to erase a big second-half deficit. This was an odd game, to say the least, but Beal should be looking at enormous usage until Wall returns to action.
Wed, Nov 29, 2017 11:01:00 PM

Tim Frazier posted four points, three rebounds, three assists and three turnovers in 19 minutes vs. Philly on Wednesday.

Frazier flopped on Tuesday with just two points in 16 minutes, and he's been a disappointment for owners aiming to capitalize on John Wall's absence. Tomas Satoransky has outplayed him for two straight games and although Frazier still has short-term potential, it makes sense to pivot to a more productive free agent in deeper leagues.
Wed, Nov 29, 2017 10:59:00 PM

Tim Frazier handed out eight assists as a fill-in starter sans John Wall (knee) on Sunday, adding eight rebounds, six points, one 3-pointer and four turnovers in 36 minutes.

Frazier did a nice job of running the offense for Washington, and while he didn't spend a ton of time looking for his own shot (2-of-4 from the field) he still put forth an effective stat line. The Wizards play again Monday vs. Milwaukee, and if Wall is again forced to sit that one out, Frazier will make for a solid streamer or low-budget option in DFS.
Sun, Nov 19, 2017 06:07:00 PM

Tim Frazier (left wrist) started on Sunday for John Wall (sprained left shoulder), navigating early foul trouble to finish with four points, eight assists, two rebounds, one steal and zero turnovers in 31 minutes.

Frazier had X-rays and an MRI on his left wrist this weekend, but they came back negative and the team called it a sprain -- the fact that he started this game should alleviate any fears. Wall is day-to-day and he could return as soon as Tuesday vs. Dallas, but this is a good reminder that Frazier is worth handcuffing in deeper leagues.
Sun, Nov 5, 2017 09:05:00 PM

Tomas Satoransky played 22 minutes off the bench on Sunday, finishing scoreless on 0-of-4 shooting with four rebounds, three assists and one steal.

This summer, coach Scott Brooks suggested that Satoransky would have to play some SG and SF to crack the rotation, but John Wall's shoulder injury opened up the backup PG job tonight. He didn't do much to make a claim for increased playing time.
Sun, Nov 5, 2017 09:03:00 PM

Tim Frazier (left wrist) will move into the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Raptors, with John Wall (shoulder) unavailable.

Frazier can be very good when given the minutes, and through 35 games as a starter with the Pelicans last season he put in averages of 8.9 points, 6.9 dimes and 1.0 steal per game, so he's looking like a strong plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Additionally, this injury is to his non-shooting wrist, so we wouldn't expect it to dramatically affect his play.
Sun, Nov 5, 2017 04:47:00 PM

Bradley Beal scored a season-high 28 points during an overtime loss on Wednesday, adding six rebounds, three steals, two assists, one block and two 3-pointers.

Beal logged 44 minutes tonight and he's picked up where he left off last year as an early-round value with volume scoring and solid across-the-board stats. John Wall added 18 points and nine assists tonight, and Marcin Gortat had 11 points and 14 rebounds, but Washington gave up 54 points in the paint tonight in their first loss of the season.
Thu, Oct 26, 2017 02:41:00 AM

Tim Frazier played 13 minutes during his Wizards debut on Wednesday, going scoreless with five assists.

Frazier dealt with a groin injury throughout training camp and the preseason, but he's ready to go as Washington's backup PG. He'll be a popular pickup if anything happens to John Wall, but that's about it.
