John Wall (left heel) will undergo a debridement and repair of a Haglund’s deformity and a chronic Achilles tendon injury in his left heel.
He will have the surgery next week and Wall will be out for 6-8 months. This issue has been bothering him for years, and perhaps getting this issue corrected could help him stay healthier in other areas. Wall's season ends with averages of 20.7 points, 8.7 dimes and 3.6 boards in his 32 games, and he can be dropped in all re-draft leagues. Tomas Satoransky and Thomas Bryant should be added in standard leagues. Sat, Dec 29, 2018 08:56:00 PM

Tomas Satoransky shifted back to the bench on Sunday, posting eight points, three rebounds and two steals in 20 minutes.

Satoransky played 48 minutes as a starter for John Wall (illness) on Sunday, but took a backseat with Wall active tonight. Washington's desire to play Satoransky as more than a backup PG hasn't yielded much, and he can be left unowned while Wall is active.

Austin Rivers said he'll be in the starting lineup for Monday's matchup with the Pacers, with John Wall (heel) unavailable.

Rivers put up nine points, seven boards, seven assists, one 3-pointer and two turnovers in his previous start this season, so he could be someone to think about as a deep league streamer or DFS punt play tonight. Tomas Satoransky will also see some increased opportunity with Wall out, and Bradley Beal will be tasked with the heavy lifting on offense.

Bradley Beal scored a season-high 36 points in Wednesday's win vs. Atlanta, making 12-of-22 FGs and 10-of-13 FTs with two 3-pointers, nine assists and six rebounds.

John Wall was out tonight for personal reasons, which explains most of Beal's eruption, but this was a perfect storm vs. one of the league's worst defenses. Beal added one steal in 42 minutes of action and the Wizards are a perfect 3-0 in December, improving their record to 11-14 -- they're still a game behind the Hornets for the No. 8 seed. Wall's absence was temporary but Beal is a top-25 player even when he's active.

Austin Rivers made his first start of the season on Wednesday for John Wall (personal), putting up nine points, seven rebounds, seven assists and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes of action.

Wall wasn't with the team due to the birth of his first child, gifting Rivers an expanded role vs. a lenient Hawks defense. The bad news is that he committed two turnovers, didn't have any defensive stats, and shot just 3-of-12 from the field tonight. Wall is day-to-day and the Wizards don't play again until Saturday, so Rivers should quickly head back to fantasy obscurity in his usual bench role.

Otto Porter (toe) is a go for Monday's game against the Knicks.

Porter jammed his toe on Saturday, but it's not bad enough to keep him off the court. Joining him in the starting five for tonight's game will be John Wall, Bradley Beal, Tomas Satoransky and Thomas Bryant. Go ahead and get him active.

Bradley Beal shot 4-of-13 from the field on Sunday, scoring 12 points with two 3-pointers, four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 26 minutes.

Wizards coach Scott Brooks leaned on his bench in the second half and excoriated his team after trailing by 29 points in this game. "That's embarrassing," he said about his team's lack of effort. "Look what happened, the guys off the bench. They played with passion." He didn't single out any starters or promise lineup changes, but even if he did John Wall and Beal are the two guaranteed, max-salary locks in the lineup. Either way, the Wizards are 5-11 and searching for answers.

John Wall and Bradley Beal have encouraged Austin Rivers to bring the ball up the court offensively.

"This year, I’m going to make it a lot easier for John and Brad," said Rivers. "Scoring, making plays, they’re not going to have to do it all. [They are] going to have a third guy who can score and make plays." Rivers will be coming off the bench as a sixth-man but the Wizards are committed to playing three-guard lineups -- one small-ball unit will feature Markieff Morris and Otto Porter in the frontcourt. Rivers' game hasn't translated well for fantasy, though, so he's not a desirable target on draft day.

John Wall, Bradley Beal, Otto Porter, Markieff Morris and Ian Mahinmi will be in the starting lineup for Monday's preseason opener vs. New York.

Dwight Howard is out dealing with a back issue, so Mahinmi will get the start, and that trend should continue until D12 is able to get back to the court. Scott Brooks said none of his starters will play much more than 20 minutes tonight, and he doesn't anticipate playing Wall or Beal beyond the first quarter.

John Wall recently described the Wizards' personnel moves this offseason, including the trade for Dwight Howard, as "pretty interesting."

Faint praise indeed. "Even though [Howard] is older, he's still an athletic big averaging 16 [points] and 12 [rebounds]," Wall said. He also described Howard as a lob threat, adding that if teams cheat off Dwight defensively during pick-and-roll action or drives to the rim, "Not only do you get more layups, probably, you get more wide open threes." With only Ian Mahinmi and Thomas Bryant behind Howard at center on an expensive team hungry for playoff success, and Wall feeding him easy buckets around the rim, Dwight couldn't have asked for a softer landing spot for fantasy.

John Wall deflected a question in early July about Washington potentially playing three-guard lineups late in games next season.

Interviewer Chris Miller floated the idea of Wall closing games alongside Beal and Austin Rivers, and Wall responded that it was "fun and interesting." He also described the Wizards' overall moves this summer as being "pretty interesting," though, so it's not a glowing review. He described Rivers as a "competitive ... high-volume shooter" and quickly pivoted to Rivers' abilities as a go-to scorer with the second unit. It doesn't sound like a roundly endorsed concept but we'll see if coach Scott Brooks experiments with it during the preseason.

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.
Wed, Apr 11, 2018 11:31:00 PM

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.
Sun, Apr 1, 2018 06:02:00 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.

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.
Sun, Mar 25, 2018 09:31:00 PM

Ramon Sessions scored 11 points in just 16 minutes of action on Sunday, going 7-of-7 at the free-throw line with three assists, two rebounds and one steal.

Maybe the 31-year-old veteran had revenge on his mind vs. his former Knicks team? Regardless, he has stepped up in the absence of John Wall (knee), usurping Tim Frazier's minutes as a reliable second-unit guard for the month of March. It sounds like Wall will return soon, and of course neither Sessions nor Frazier should be owned regardless of your league's depth.
Sun, Mar 25, 2018 09:26:00 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.
Thu, Mar 22, 2018 12:21:00 AM

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.
Wed, Mar 14, 2018 11:39:00 PM

Bradley Beal scored a game-high 34 points to help snap the Wizards' two-game losing streak on Wednesday, making 14-of-27 shots with nine assists, seven rebounds, two assists and one block.

The Wizards were down 21-6 against a skeleton crew for the Celtics, but they woke up behind a stellar effort from Beal. It was almost like he realized Boston was playing without five key rotation players and couldn't stop him one-on-one. He wound up playing 47 minutes in the double-overtime road win, and was understandably exhausted -- when asked how he felt afterward, he referenced his injured All-Star teammate -- "First off, John [Wall] better hurry up." Fantasy owners may not share that sentiment.
Wed, Mar 14, 2018 11:25:00 PM

Tim Frazier returned to action on Thursday with two points, four rebounds and two assists in 12 minutes off the bench.

Frazier wore a face mask after missing some time before the break with a nasal fracture. The mask didn't seem to impact his play, but even without John Wall (knee), Frazier's fantasy value is very limited due to Tomas Satoransky thriving in the starting role. Leave him on the wire.
Thu, Feb 22, 2018 11:15:00 PM

Tomas Satoransky was terrific during Thursday's win in Cleveland, scoring 17 points on 6-of-7 field goals and 4-of-4 free throws in 31 minutes.

The 26-year-old guard added eight assists, four rebounds, two steals and one 3-pointer without a single turnover. John Wall (knee surgery) recently got off crutches but he's unlikely to return before mid- to late-March, giving Satoransky at least a few weeks of unfettered minutes as the Wizards' starting PG. He's quietly emerged as one of the best waiver-wire additions this season, with past-month averages of 10.5 points (55.7% FGs, 100.0% FTs), 1.4 triples, 2.9 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 1.3 steals and 0.6 blocks.
