Satoransky will start at shooting guard for Wednesday's game against the Heat, Candace Buckner of the Washington Post reports.
The Wizards are set to be without both John Wall (quad) and Bradley Beal (rest), so they'll start both Brandon Jennings and Satoransky in the backcourt. Satroansky will likely share the extra minutes with Bojan Bogdanovic at shooting guard, but he should still see close to a 30-minute role Wednesday with the potential to work at both guard spots, making him an intriguing, low-cost DFS play.
Satoransky generated zero points (0-1 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and one rebound across eight minutes in a 131-127 win over the Suns on Tuesday.
Wizards coach Scott Brooks found minutes for all of Satoransky, Brandon Jennings and Trey Burke on Wednesday, but it's only the former two players who have been regularly included in the rotation of late. Satoransky has appeared in six straight contests, though he's seen single-digit minutes in three successive games. So long as backcourt starters John Wall and Bradley Beal maintain health, it's difficult to envision Satoransky seeing much more expanded run over the final month of the regular season.
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.
