2019 Fantasy Outlook
For the second year in a row, Satoransky saw his workload increase with the Wizards. That resulted in career highs nearly across the board for the former 32nd overall pick. His role truly opened up once John Wall was lost due to injury, and Satoransky posted 10.7 points, 6.2 assists, 4.3 rebounds and 1.1 steals as a starter. But Washington decided to move on from Satoransky during the offseason, and the Bulls swooped in to sign him to a three-year, $30 million deal. While Chicago has young point guard options in Kris Dunn and rookie Coby White, the organization has openly place Dunn on the trading block, and starting a rookie point guard is a high-risk move for a team hoping for a postseason berth. So it appears Satoransky will join Chicago's starting five, possibly allowing him a bigger role than he's seen up to this point. Even on the off-chance that Satoransky isn't the Bulls' full-time starter, he can play three positions and could make for a great sixth man off the bench. At 6-foot-7 with a well-rounded skillset, Satoransky can play both guard spots, as well as small forward. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio

Tomas Satoransky was born in 1991 in Prague, Czech Republic. He started his pro career in 2007 with HSK Praha of the Czech Republic National Basketball League. Two seasons later, Satoransky began a five-year stint at CB Sevilla in Spain's top division, ACB. He would eventually sign with FC Barcelona and ended up staying there for two years before jumping to the NBA in 2016. Satoransky has represented his country at every age level, including the 2019 FIBA World Cup. He spends part of the offseason running a kids basketball camp in his native country. You can follow Satoransky on Twitter (@satoransky) and Instagram (@tomasatoransky).

College/International Summary

Prior to coming to the NBA, Satoransky moved his way through the ranks of a variety of European leagues. As a 14-year-old in 2007, he played for USK Praha in the Czech National Basketball League, which is the highest level of competition in the Czech Republic. Despite being very young, the guard played significant minutes and provided 9.6 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game. After two seasons with Praha, he moved to CB Sevilla of the Spanish ACB League. He matured through five seasons and provided 12.1 points, 3.8 rebounds and 3.8 assists in his final year. Satoransky helped the team play in the 2010-11 Eurocup final where the team lost to Unics Kazan. His final stop in his European tour was with FC Barcelona, where he played for two seasons. The 6-foot-7 guard averaged 10.7 points and hit 43.9 percent of his three-pointers in 2015-16. Satoransky has also represented the Czech Republic in FIBA international competition since 2006. He helped his squad finish seventh in the 2015 EuroBasket by averaging 14.1 points, 7.3 assists and 5.2 rebounds per contest.

Shifting to bench

March 9, 2020
Satoransky will shift to the bench for Tuesday's game against the Cavs, Mike McGraw of the Daily Herald reports.
ANALYSIS
It's unclear whether this is a one-game change or something more permanent, but it's happening despite Zach LaVine (quad) being set to miss another game. That means rookie Coby White will fill one guard spot, while Denzel Valentine will presumably remain in the lineup alongside White.

Past Season Summaries
2019

Satoransky appeared in 65 games for the Bulls during the 2019-20 season. He averaged 9.9 points, 5.4 assists, 3.9 rebounds and 1.2 steals in 28.9 minutes. He shot 43.0 percent from the field, 32.2 percent from three and a career-high 87.6 percent from the free-throw line. Satoransky set new single-game career highs in points (27) and assists (14). His other single-game season highs were eight rebounds, four threes, four steals and one block. He had three double-doubles. Satoransky posted 11 games with at least 15 points, 22 games with at least five rebounds and 21 games with at least seven assists. He also had 10 games with at least three steals and seven games with at least one block. In the eight games that Satoransky played at least 35 minutes, he averaged 13.4 points, 7.8 assists, 4.9 rebounds and 1.9 steals. He also averaged 1.5 made threes in those contests.

2018

For the second year in a row, Satoransky saw his workload increase with the Wizards. Satoransky unexpectedly started 54 of the 80 games in which he played during the 2018-19 season. The increased workload resulted in career highs nearly across the board for the former 32nd overall pick. Satoransky's role truly opened up in late December after John Wall was lost due to injury. As the new starting point guard, Satoransky posted 10.7 points, 6.2 assists, 4.3 rebounds and 1.1 steals per contest over his 54 starts. On Jan. 11, the Czech guard delivered his first career NBA triple-double. Satoransky achieved the feat with 18 points, 12 boards and 10 dimes in a home win over the Bucks. That effort marked the start of a seven-game hot streak in which he boosted his average production to 13.7 points, 7.3 assists, 5.7 rebounds and 1.9 steals. All told, he recorded 10 games with 10 or more assists and seven double-doubles. Satoransky also shot an impressive 40 percent from behind the arc. He made a season-high four 3-pointers on seven attempts as part of a 20-point, four-rebound, six-assist game Dec. 29 against Charlotte.

2017

In his second NBA season, Satoransky saw increased playing time at point guard as John Wall dealt with knee issues and missed 41 games. Satoransky appeared in 73 games for the Wizards and played 22.5 minutes per night -- nearly 10 more than his rookie campaign. The 26-year-old from the Czech Republic set new career highs across the board with 7.2 points, 3.9 assists and 3.2 rebounds per game. Not surprisingly, he was even more productive as a starter, playing 29.7 minutes per night and finishing with 9.9 points, 5.5 assists and 4.3 rebounds across 30 starts. Satoransky showed a nice shooting stroke all season long, knocking down a career-high 52.3 percent of his shots, including a scintillating 46.5 percent from 3-point range. He made a season-high five 3-pointers on just six attempts against Chicago on Feb. 10 and had seven other outings with multiple 3-pointers. That game against the Bulls was also Satoransky's highest-scoring effort of the season, as he finished with 25 points. He amassed 19 other double-figure scoring games, with 14 of those coming in starts. Satoransky also dished out 10 or more assists three times, recording a high of 11 against the Knicks on Valentine's Day.

2016

Originally a second-round pick of the Wizards in 2012, Satoransky instead chose to remain in Spain, where he was already playing pro ball, until he finally signed with Washington ahead of the 2016-17 season. He appeared in 57 games (three starts) as a 25-year-old NBA rookie, averaging 2.7 points, 1.5 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 0.5 steals over 12.6 minutes per game. The Czech import demonstrated noteworthy positional flexibility, playing shooting guard, small forward, point guard and even a little power forward. In one of his starts, Nov. 12 at Chicago, Satoransky set season highs in both points and assists, scoring 12 while dishing out nine dimes en route to a 106-95 win. He notched his first career double-double in a Jan. 16 win over Portland, tallying 10 points and 10 rebounds with three assists and a steal despite playing only 19 minutes. Satoransky recorded two steals on four separate occasions, showing his ability to make an impact on both ends of the court when given the opportunity.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
Satoransky saw his first major minutes during the 2017-18 campaign with starting point guard John Wall missing 41 games due to injury. That allowed him to pick up 30 starts across 73 games and tally a career-high workload of 22.5 minutes for the season. Satoransky played particularly well during those 30 starts, averaging 10.4 points, 5.8 assists and 4.4 rebounds across 30.7 minutes, while shooting a blistering 53.2 percent from the field and 50.8 percent from deep. That certainly bodes well for his future in the NBA, but unfortunately doesn't guarantee him a significant role heading into his third season in 2018-19. Wall is expected to be back to full strength and the Wizards also traded for combo guard Austin Rivers, so Satoransky is going to face a much more crowded path to playing time. He'll surely still provide some key reserve minutes at point guard for stretches of games, but the added bodies likely mean Satoransky will have a tough time matching his breakout season. For that reason, the 26-year-old is nothing more than a dynasty stash when considering his Fantasy value.
Satoransky, a rookie last season out of the Czech Republic, saw a spotty workload during 2016-17. Despite having solid athleticism and basketball IQ, he was still quite raw during his first season in the States, posting 2.7 points, 1.6 assists and 1.5 rebounds across 12.6 minutes per game. The 6-foot-7, 25-year-old also shot 41.5 percent from the field and went 9-of-37 (24.3 percent) from deep. The Wizards drafted him in the second round with the hopes of him being a jack-of-all trades player on both sides of the ball, capable of playing point guard through small forward. That was somewhat the case last year, as he spent 62 percent of his time at shooting guard and 35 percent at small forward, but just three percent at point guard and one percent at power forward. It may be tough for coach Scott Brooks to find him minutes once again, as the Wizards have a seemingly established set of reserves at each position. He’ll likely see run if the team deals multiple injuries, however. That said, he can almost certainly be avoided in the vast majority of Fantasy formats, as we have very little to go on as far as his NBA potential and he doesn’t seem to be slated for an increased workload.
