G - CHI
Tomas Satoransky produced five points (2-7 FG, 1-3 3PT), eight rebounds, and five assist over 29 minutes of relief in Tuesday's 108-103 win over the Cavaliers.
After starting 64 straight games this season, Satoransky's streak came to an end on Tuesday night. Bulls' coach Jim Boylen had no choice but to vault the explosive rookie Coby White into the starting lineup due to his recent play. Satoransky is averaging 28.9 minutes per game and logged 29 off the bench on Tuesday but failed to do much as a scorer. Luckily he was able to salvage his poor night shooting by tying his season-high in rebounds and dishing five assists. Even though Satoransky is no longer the starting point guard, he should continue to see valuable minutes and maintain his value as a pass-first guard in all fantasy leagues.
Tomas Satoransky managed four points (1-7 FG, 0-1 3PT, 2-2 FT) three rebounds, one assist and two turnovers across 25 minutes in Sunday's 110-107 loss to the Nets.
Satoransky struggled to get anything going in Sunday's loss to the Nets, shooting a woeful 14 percent from the floor. Before Sunday's terrible outing, Satoransky was contributing in a little bit of everything, averaging 6.0 rebounds, 6.0 assists 1.0 steals in his previous three games. If fantasy owners need help with either assists or steals, the 28-year old is worth adding in standard leagues. The Bulls next scheduled game is Tuesday, home against the Cavaliers.
Tomas Satoransky recorded 11 points (5-10 FG, 1-3 3PT), six rebounds, five assists, and one steal over 31 minutes in Monday's 109-107 win over the Mavericks.
Satoransky is posting 10.1 points, 5.5 assists, and 3.8 rebounds per game this season so Monday's performance was slightly above his season averages. The potentially bad news for Satoransky owners is that Coby White is securing the reins as the team's best point guard. While Satoransky is still on the court for the tipoff duties, White has secured the lead point guard role in every other way imaginable. Coach Jim Boylen has been toying with the lineup a bit lately, switching Satoransky to shooting guard and starting Shaquille Harrison at point guard and letting White close out games. It appears that the Bulls will want to keep Satoransky a part of their lineup with a heavy dose of minutes, so the emergence of White could end up being a non-factor for Satoransky's value.
Tomas Satoransky registered six points (2-8 FG, 0-3 3PT, 2-2 FT), seven assists, four rebounds, and one steal in Saturday's 125-115 loss to the Knicks.
Satoransky couldn't find his shot on Saturday but made up for it by dishing a team-high seven dimes. Satoransky runs the point often even though he is technically listed as a shooting guard, and rookie Coby White could start to relieve him of some of those duties. White is averaging 30.8 points over his last four games and bringing a level of scoring and explosiveness that Satoransky simply isn't capable of. While coach Jim Boylen seems content in keeping White on the bench to help with his development, don't be surprised to see Satoransky's minutes start to take a hit as the Bulls look to see what they have in their new rookie. Most of Satoransky's value in fantasy comes from his ability to pass the rock as he's only averaging 10.1 points per game. If he and White start sharing time on the court and Satoransky has to take on more of a classic shooting guard role it would severely hamper his value.
Tomas Satoransky provided 10 points (4-10 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven assists and five rebounds over 33 minutes in the Bulls’ 124-122 loss to the Thunder on Tuesday.
Satoransky provided a well-rounded line in Tuesday's loss, doing a little bit of everything as he's managed to do all year. Though he doesn't impress with field-goal or three-point percentages, he's been solid from the free-throw line (87.0 percent) while displaying double-digit assist upside. In his first year with Chicago, the fourth-year man is averaging career highs across the board with 10.2 points, 5.5 assists, 3.7 rebounds and 1.3 per contest.
