Tomas Satoransky was having the game of his life when in the final minutes of the Wizards' win over the Bulls things got scary very quickly.

Satoransky drew baseline and went up for a high-flying dunk, only to come crashing down as Bulls forward Bobby Portis grabbed his arm on a hard foul. Portis was ejected for the play.

Satoransky hit his head on the ground and started bleeding his temple. Now the Wizards hope for the best as he will be monitored for a concussion.

"He’s gonna be alright," head coach Scott Brooks said.

Satoransky, 26, didn't address reporters in Chicago after the game. But his coach and teammates shared their reactions to the scary play.

"Everybody knows the rule. It’s a dangerous play," Brooks said. "I’m sure if [Portis] had to do it over again, he probably would have taken it back."

"It was just scary to see him hit his head like that. I tried to not let him get up as quick as he wanted to," forward Otto Porter said.

"I’m sure he was more scared than anything," guard Jodie Meeks said. "If a guy has a clear lane to the basket, if you can’t there then let him go. You can’t try to take him out. Obviously, not everybody abides by those rules."

The injury cut short the best game of Satoransky's two-year NBA career so far. He scored a career-high 25 points on 10-of-12 shooting and 5-of-6 from three. Those 25 points were the most ever scored by a Czech-born player in NBA history.

Satoransky also had six assists and two steals. He helped the Wizards move to 6-2 since John Wall got injured.

"Tomas, he was on fire. He played a great game," Brooks said. "He’s really developing. He’s tough and he’s competitive. He just makes great plays for us."

Portis also knocked backup point guard Tim Frazier out of the game. According to NBC Sports Washington's Chris Miller, Frazier may require surgery to fix a nose fracture. The Wizards have three injured point guards right now. The good news is that they have three days off until their next game. They could probably use more than that.
