This article is part of our NBA Waiver Wire series.
Week 12 in the NBA brings a diverse schedule, with nearly a third of the league playing four games, while just one team – the Knicks – plays two games.
As is usually the case at this point in the season, the waiver wire isn't exactly brimming with high-level options, but the plethora of four-game teams presents ample opportunity. A few key injuries also factor into this week's recommendations. The Wizards losing John Wall for the season is the obvious headliner, but several other teams, including the Lakers, Hawks and Rockets, are also dealing with injured starters.
Here's a look at the Week 12 schedule breakdown:
Four Games: ATL, CHA, DAL, MEM, MIN, OKC, ORL, PHX, TOR
Three Games: BOS, BKN, CHI, CLE, DEN, DET, GSW, HOU, IND, LAC, LAL, MIA, MIL, NOP, PHI, POR, SAC, SAS, UTA, WAS
Two Games: NYK
As always, players listed must be owned in less than two-thirds of CBS leagues.
Tomas Satoransky, Washington (67% owned)
We're going to immediately disregard that two-thirds-ownership rule to talk about Satoransky, who should now be owned in leagues of nearly any size with John Wall done for the season. Satoransky has started the last two games and played 39 and 32 minutes, respectively. He struggled in a loss to Chicago on Friday but bounced back with 20 points, six assists, four rebounds and four made threes in Saturday's road win over Charlotte.
