Satoransky recorded just one rebound in five minutes during Sunday's 106-98 victory over Toronto. Satoransky barely left the bench Sunday, continuing his recent demotion to the bench. After filling in admirably for John Wall across the back half of the season, Satoransky appears to have almost fallen out of the rotation. The series now heads North for Game Five and Satoransky's production potential remains questionable as best.
Satoransky will start at point guard for Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Magic, Candace Buckner of the Washington Post reports. The Wizards are giving usual starter John Wall the night off for rest in the regular-season finale, so Satoransky will reclaim a starting role. Satoransky is no stranger to the top unit and has averaged 10.3 points, 4.2 rebounds and 5.8 assists across 30.3 minutes in 29 previous starts. He'll make for a solid low-cost point guard option for Wednesday's DFS slate.
Satoransky will return to a bench role for Tuesday's game against the Celtics. Satoransky picked up the start Friday with John Wall sitting out for rest, but struggled and posted just eight points, five rebounds and two assists across 29 minutes. Wall has since been cleared for a return Tuesday and he'll immediately claim his typical starting role, sending Satoransky back to the bench. The Wizards close out the season with a back-to-back set Tuesday and Wednesday, so there's a chance the Wizards consider resting Wall once again in the finale. As a result, Satoransky could see another spot start in his place Wednesday, which will be something to monitor for the time being.
Satoransky had just eight points (4-8 FG), five rebounds and two assists in 29 minutes during Friday's 103-97 loss to Atlanta. Satoransky moved back into the starting lineup, replacing John Wall who was sitting this one out to rest. Despite the bump in playing time, Satoransky saw no increase in his production and is almost certainly a drop candidate at this stage.
Satoransky will start during Friday's contest against the Hawks, Chris Miller of NBCS Washington reports. As expected, with John Wall (rest) out, Satoransky will draw the start at point guard. In 28 starts this season, he's averaged 10.4 points, 6.0 assists and 4.2 rebounds in 30.3 minutes.
