Satoransky put up three points (1-2 FG, 1-1 3Pt), three rebounds and one assist across nine minutes in a 116-108 win over the Lakers on Thursday. Satoransky was excluded from the Wizards rotation for much of the first half of January, but has since settled into a regular role as the primary backup to starting shooting guard Bradley Beal, effectively replacing fellow rookie Sheldon McClellan. Since recording a 10-point, 10-rebound double-double Jan. 16 against the Trail Blazers, Satoransky has appeared in seven of the Wizards' eight contests, but is averaging a meager 2.9 points, 1.6 rebounds and 0.9 assists in 11.9 minutes per contest.
Satoransky (illness) returned to the court and tallied four points (0-3 FG, 4-4 FT), four rebounds, two assists and one steal across 21 minutes during a 109-93 win against the 76ers on Saturday, Satoransky had missed the previous two games with an illness and had not seen any game action since Dec. 30, but somewhat surprisingly received 21 minutes as the team blew open the game against Philadelphia in the second half. The 21 minutes were the most he's seen since Nov. 19. Otto Porter (hip) left Saturday's game in third quarter, and if he is forced to miss any time, Satoransky could see an increased role.
Satoransky (illness) will be active for Saturday's tilt against the 76ers, J. Michael of CSNmidatlantic.com reports The 25-year-old rookie has only appeared in 23 games for the Wizards this season, averaging 3.1 points, 2.2 assists, and 1.5 rebounds in 14.7 minutes per game when he does take the court. He'll likely only see minutes Saturday in a blowout, or if John Wall (wrist, pinkie) has to leave the game due to aggravating his injuries.
Satoransky (illness) practiced Friday and is questionable for Saturday's game with the 76ers, J. Michael of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports. Satoransky sat out both Tuesday's and Wednesday's games due to an illness. The reserve guard has recently fallen out of the Wizards' rotation, but if starting point guard John Wall (wrist, pinkie) sits out Saturday, Satoransky may have an opportunity for some minutes if available. Otherwise, if he continues to sit out, the Wizards will look elsewhere for guard depth.
Satoransky (illness) did not travel with the Wizards to Boston and has been ruled out for Wednesday's matchup with the Celtics, Candace Buckner of the Washington Post reports. Satoransky also missed Tuesday's game against the Bulls with the illness, so Wednesday's game marks a second straight absence for the 25-year-old guard. With another couple of days before Saturday's tilt with the Sixers, Satoransky should have ample time off to make a full recovery, although his status should be updated again later in the week. Satoransky has recently fallen out of the Wizards' rotation completely, so his absence Wednesday shouldn't have a big impact on the team's playing time allotment.
