The Wizards continue to trudge on without John Wall. They crushed the Pistons in their last game but lost in Philly before that. They won in Minnesota three games ago but lost at home to Portland before that. That’s just how it’s been without their starting point guard.
But Washington has discovered a new playmaker in its last couple games. Tomas Satoransky is in his second NBA season out of the Czech Republic. He was the third point guard on the depth chart when Wall was healthy and I have to admit I had never heard of him.
But the 6’7″ point guard has shot 9-for-13 in his last two games, with 29 points, 12 assists, six rebounds and zero turnovers. He’s making plays with Kelly Oubre in the second unit and it may not be long until Scott Brooks is playing Satoransky over Tim Frazier.
It’s a big if, but if Wall comes back healthy for the rest of the season, Washington will look back at this stretch as a positive one, where their star point guard could get healthy and some rest in the middle of the season and some new guys get a chance to develop. Frazier hasn’t played badly in a starting role and Bradley Beal, Otto Porter and Markieff Morris have had a chance to show what they can do as bigger parts of the offense. This is a deep and dangerous Washington team.
The Jazz won their fifth game in a row over the weekend thanks to 41 points from Donovan Mitchell against the Pelicans. Mitchell became the first rookie since Blake Griffin in 2009 to score 40 points in a game. His three-point stroke was wet and he was getting to the rim with ease. The Jazz look to have won that draft day deal with the Nuggets when they acquired Mitchell for Trey Lyles and a later draft pick.
So Utah fans are feeling pretty good and that was before the good news about Rudy Gobert broke yesterday. Gobert is ahead of schedule and was upgraded to questionable for this game. The Jazz training staff is going to be cautious with Gobert but just the fact that he’s close is going to boost morale.
Then again, Derrick Favors has been fantastic as the team’s starting center. Quinn Synder might have to take a look at how to use both he and Gobert when the big man gets back. It could be that they share the floor less often going forward because Utah’s floor spacing has been better with just one big on the floor.

Free Washington Wizards vs. Utah Jazz NBA Prediction: the Jazz win a close game.
I like Washington just a little better but the reality is that Utah is awfully tough at home. This one should be very close but I’m partial to the Jazz nipping out a win at the end.
