Floor under Bathtub

I pulled out my bathtub and found the floor a bit soft and somewhat deteriorating but now dry. I guess I should replace what i can get to. Since some of the flooring is under area i cant get to (under a guess a joist) and that area I dont think is damaged can i just cut out damaged area and replace? Can I screw it into the joists that I can get to but, one side may not have complete support since this where I want to cut out? What tool can I use to make a straight cut that is close to area that I dont want to cut into?

Thanks for any help!!

The floor is under the bottom plate of the wall. That's where you can't reach. It's on top of the joists. You should be able to get a circle saw, set to a 1/2" or whatever the board is & get close enough to the wall.
