Washington Wizards point guard John Wall missed Saturday night's game against the Phoenix Suns because of flu-like symptoms.

Wall was ruled out shortly before the 7 p.m. tipoff. He did not participate in Washington's morning shootaround.

Tomas Satoransky started in place of the five-time All Star. Forward Markieff Morris also was dealing with an illness but played.

Wall entered Saturday averaging 21.2 points and 8.9 assists for the Wizards, who have lost six of seven.

He has missed three games this season, sitting out on Dec. 5 because of personal reasons and on Dec. 10 with bone spurs.

Fultz could be done

The Philadelphia 76ers are unsure if Markelle Fultz will play again this season.

Fultz, 20, was diagnosed this month with thoracic outlet syndrome and is doing physical therapy in Los Angeles. General Manager Elton Brand said he has no timetable for Fultz's return to basketball activities. Brand said it was "to be determined" if Fultz will play again this season.

"I can't say right now," Brand said.

The GM expects to update Fultz's situation in "a few weeks."

Fultz was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 draft, but his young career has been sidetracked by injuries and ineffectiveness. He averaged 8.2 points through 19 games but was shut down by his agent shortly after Jimmy Butler arrived via trade from Minnesota and Fultz lost his spot in the starting lineup.

Nets coach fined

Brooklyn Nets coach Kenny Atkinson was fined $25,000 for verbally abusing game officials and failing to leave the court quickly enough after he was ejected.

The league announced the fine on Saturday.

Atkinson was thrown out of the Nets' 114-106 loss to the Indiana Pacers on Friday night. With 1:09 remaining and Brooklyn trailing by five, Atkinson ran onto the court to confront an official after a foul was called against Rodions Kurucs.

Atkinson was given a technical foul and ejected. He became enraged, with players and assistant coaches briefly restraining him before he left the court.
