Satoransky is probable for Friday's game against the Grizzlies due to mid-back spasms.
With Zach LaVine (COVID-19 protocols) sidelined for 10-14 days, Satoransky may take on more offensive responsibilities. He's dealing with a sore back ahead of Friday, but he's still expected to play. This month, he's averaged 8.3 points, 6.1 assists, 2.1 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 29.0 minutes.
Satoransky failed to score (0-6 FG, 0-3 3Pt), but dished out 10 assists, grabbed two steals and one rebound in 33 minutes during Friday's 120-108 loss to the Hawks.
Satoransky recorded a game-high 10 assists but failed to score a point for the second time all season. The 29-year-old only played 10 minutes and attempted one field goal in his other scoreless performance -- Feb. 1 versus the Knicks. The 10 assists marked the second time all season and the second time in the last four games that the fifth-year guard reached double-digit assists. Satoransky's scoreless performance is worrisome, but his value relies on his playmaking. As long as he is dishing out assists, he will continue to see ample playing time.
Satoransky produced 19 points (8-10 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 11 assists, two steals and a rebound across 31 minutes in Sunday's 115-107 win over the Nets.
Satoransky's strong play has cemented his role in the starting five over incumbent Coby White, and White's absence due to COVID-19 safety protocols further boosted Satoransky's participation in the offense Sunday. Although his recent scoring totals have fluctuated of late, he remains a valuable source of assists and steals. Even if the winds flow back to White as the starter down the road, Satoransky has earned the playing time as well as a spot on a fantasy roster in deeper leagues.
Satoransky tallied 13 points (5-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-3 FT), two rebounds, four assists, two blocks and one steal in 30 minutes during Monday's blowout 120-95 loss to the Jazz.
The 29-year-old has been contributing efficient numbers since being inserted in the starting lineup on March 14, averaging 9.8 points, 6.5 assists and 1.5 steals while shooting 52 percent from the field over his last six games. Satoransky's minutes have spiked significantly since he took over for Coby White as the starter, and the former should continue playing 30-plus minutes a game as long the Bulls stay within reach of the playoffs. Feel free to stream Satoransky if you need assists along with decent points and steals.
Satoransky scored seven points (3-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt) with seven assists, two rebounds and one steal in a 106-99 loss to the Spurs on Wednesday.
Satoransky collected seven assists for the third consecutive game and has been a solid distributor since entering the starting lineup three contests ago. Coming off a season-high 31 minutes in the first game of a back-to-back set, the guard followed it up with a new season-high 34 on Wednesday. Satoransky appears to be the Bulls' starting point guard for now and is an intriguing fantasy option moving forward, as he is averaging 10.0 points, 7.0 assists, 3.3 rebounds and 1.7 steals over his last three games.
Satoransky accumulated 13 points (4-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), seven assists, three steals and two rebounds in 31 minutes during Tuesday's 123-102 win over the Thunder.
Satoransky got a second straight start Tuesday, as coach Billy Donovan has been favoring his veterans in the starting five lately, giving Satoransky and Thaddeus Young starts over Coby White and Wendell Carter. Satoransky has responded with great back-to-back performances. In the past two games, he's totaled 23 points, 14 assists, eight rebounds, four steals and two blocks. Satoransky's upside is capped as long as White continues to receive real minutes, which is expected even if he's not in the starting five.
Satoransky had 10 points (4-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt), seven assists, six rebounds, two blocks and a steal in Sunday's win over Toronto.
The Raptors were without several regulars, but Billy Donovan's lineup change -- he inserted Satoransky and Thaddeus Young and sent Coby White and Wendell Carter to the bench -- appeared to pay dividends right away. Satoransky played his most minutes (26) since Feb. 24 and had one of his better all-around lines of the season. He shouldn't be counted on for regular blocks contributions, but if he continues to start, Satoransky could be a solid source of points, assists, rebounds and threes.
Satoransky will start at point guard Sunday against the Raptors, Eric Woodyard of ESPN reports.
Billy Donovan hinted Saturday that a change would be coming, and he'll move both Satoransky and Thaddeus Young into the starting five, while Coby White and Wendell Carter shift to the bench. On the surface, it's a fairly damning indictment on both young players, but it's unclear if Donovan will stick with the new alignment long-term. For now, Satoransky will likely see a mild boost in fantasy value. He could be worth a flyer as the Bulls head into a four-game week.
Satoransky finished with three points (1-4 FG, 1-2 3PT), five assists and four rebounds in 20 minutes Monday against the Nuggets.
Satoransky didn't do much in terms of scoring, but he chipped in with five dimes and four boards in the loss. Prior to Monday's matchup, the point guard had scored in double digits in each of his last five contests.
Satoransky had 16 points (6-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-3 FT), five rebounds and four assists in 26 minutes during Wednesday's 133-126 overtime win over Minnesota.
The 29-year-old led the bench in scoring Wednesday as he missed only one shot from the field. Satoransky has scored in double digits in six of the past seven games and is averaging 11.4 points, 4.3 assists and 2.7 rebounds in 24.7 minutes during that stretch.
Satoransky compiled 10 points (3-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-3 FT), two rebounds and two assists over 21 minutes in Friday's 112-105 loss to the 76ers.
Satoransky's production has ramped up recently, and he's now scored in double figures during three of the last four contests. He was unable to get much done in other areas against Philadelphia recently, but the 29-year-old has been a somewhat reliable fantasy option in recent games and should continue to see plenty of playing time off the bench.
Satoransky supplied 17 points (5-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 7-7 FT), seven assists and four rebounds across 30 minutes in Friday's 125-106 loss to the Clippers.
Satoransky logged several season highs, the most notable ones being his 17 points and 30 minutes. The veteran guard had missed 10 games in January due to COVID-19 health and safety protocols. On the plus side, the Bulls have steadily increased Satoransky's minutes since returning on Jan. 22. Satoransky served as a serviceable fantasy option last year and could replicate that value down the line if healthy.
Satoransky scored nine points (3-5 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT) to go along with five rebounds, six assists, one steal and two blocks across 27 minutes in Saturday's win over the Magic.
Satoransky continued to see his role expand, as he earned a season-high 27 minutes. While that didn't lead to a big scoring night, he found other ways to provide value, most notably with three combined steals and blocks. While Coby White will likely remain locked into the starting point guard role, Satoransky played some overlapping minutes with him, which could hint at an increased role going forward if the team opts to play small.
Satoransky was held scoreless (0-1 FG, 0-1 3PT) in Monday's win over the Knicks.
Playing in his fifth game since an extended absence due to COVID-19 protocols, Satoransky had two rebounds and four assists, but had limited opportunities to contribute in just 10 minutes of action. Since returning, Satoransky is averaging just 14.0 minutes per game off the bench.
Satoransky (COVID-19) played 11 minutes off the bench Friday in the Bulls' 123-110 win over the Hornets, totaling two points (1-1 FG), four assists and two steals.
Satoransky suited up for the first time in more than three weeks after missing the Bulls' last 10 games while he waited to clear the NBA's health and safety protocols following his positive COVID-19 test. Head coach Billy Donovan broke Satoransky back into the rotation as the Bulls' backup point guard, with the 29-year-old unseating Ryan Arcidiacono for that role. Satoransky likely won't see his minutes pick up in a major way so long as the Bulls' backcourt starters -- Coby White and Zach LaVine -- both remain healthy.
Satoransky (COVID-19 protocols) is not listed on Thursday's injury report.
Satoransky can be considered on track for Friday's road game against the Hornets, as his absence from the injury report is an indication that he's fully cleared the NBA's health and safety protocols. His last time taking the court was Dec. 29, so its possible that the Bulls could ease Satoransky back into action.
Satoransky (COVID-19 protocols) practiced Wednesday and is on track to play Friday against the Hornets, Rob Schaefer of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
Satoransky hasn't played since Dec. 29, so while he's likely to return Friday, it would be surprising if he played a full complement of minutes. Prior to missing time, he was seeing minutes in the low-to-mid-20s and averaging 6.3 points with 6.0 assists, 2.3 rebounds and 1.3 steals.
Satoransky (COVID-19 protocols) is listed as out for Monday's game against Houston.
There was a chance Satoransky would be cleared to return Monday, but he's still in the league's health and safety protocols and will miss at least one more contest. The Bulls have three full days off following Monday's game, so Satoransky's next chance to play won't arrive until Friday in Charlotte.
Satoransky remains away from the team and is a few days away from returning, and he'll be out for Friday's game against the Thunder and Sunday's game against the Mavericks, Rob Schaefer of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
Satoransky is still recovering from COVID-19 and needs some more time away from the practice facility, meaning he'll certainly be out Friday and Sunday. There's a chance he could play Monday, but that's far from clear.
Bulls head coach Billy Donovan said Sunday that Satoransky has tested positive for COVID-19, Cody Westerlund of 670TheScore.com reports.
Satoransky was already ruled out for a third straight game Sunday versus the Mavericks through the league's health and safety protocols. He's currently one of four Bulls in the midst of a quarantine, though only Satoransky and Chandler Hutchison are known to have tested positive for the virus, while Ryan Arcidiacono and Lauri Markkanen are being held out through contact tracing. The Bulls don't have a timeline for Satoransky's return, but with Donovan having acknowledged that Arcidiacono and Markkanen won't be available for the four-game West Coast road trip that begins Tuesday in Portland, it's probably safe to assume that Satoransky's absence will extend beyond that.
