ATLANTA -- Braves outfielder Justin Upton did not play in Wednesday afternoon's 10-5 loss to the Phillies at Turner Field, but he was available to come off the bench after exiting Tuesday night's 5-2 loss with dizziness and lightheadedness.

"Obviously, I want to be out there with the guys, but if I'm not feeling right and I can't help the team, it's better to have somebody out there 100 percent," Upton said. "[I feel] a little bit off, and my strength's a little bit down, but other than that, I feel pretty good."

Although Upton's status for Thursday's game in Washington, D.C., remains up in the air, the outfielder does not think that his current predicament will be a long-term issue.

"It's kind of an isolated thing," Upton said. "I guess we'll see how long it lingers, but for the most part, I'm hoping I can get back to myself in the next couple of days."
