Satoransky underwent an X-ray which showed that he did not suffer a fracture, according to Czech reporter Jakub Kanta.

Next, he will undergo an MRI to determine the true extent of the ankle injury. Thus, the time of his return and whether he will be able to compete in the EuroBasket remain unknown.

In the upcoming EuroBasket 2022, the Czech Republic is in group D together with Serbia, Poland, Finland, Israel, and the Netherlands.

Saturday the Czech Republic will meet Italy in Hamburg for their last preparation friendly.

Before the EuroBasket, the Czechs will also play two games in the 2023 FIBA World Cup Qualifiers. On August 24 they will face France on the road, and on August 27 Hungary at home.
