John Wall called out some of his teammates during Saturday's exit interview and discussed some changes he wants the front office to make.
"It’s pretty obvious. I don’t need to point it out. I think the way the league is going, you need athletic bigs, you need scoring off the bench, you need all of those types of things," Wall said. "We don’t really have an athletic big." Wall added that he wants the front office to bring in players "that really want to win and really want to take that next step," and while he didn't mention anyone by name, it's not a stretch to say that this was a shot directed towards Marcin Gortat -- those two have a long history of not getting along. Apart from the core trio of Wall, Bradley Beal and Otto Porter, Washington could have an eventful summer. Apr 29 - 10:08 AM

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 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

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

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

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.
Mar 25 - 9:26 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 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.
Mar 14 - 11:39 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.
Mar 14 - 11:25 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.
Feb 22 - 11:15 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.
Feb 22 - 11:09 PM

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.
