Default Using Washed Yeast to Judge Clearing Time

I started lagering my Kolsch and while racking to the secondary, I washed some yeast. In the containers I used to wash my yeast, the solution is still cloudy like I imagine it would be in the secondary. Is the solution in my washed yeast container a good indicator of how clear my beer is in the secondary?

I know I added water during the yeast washing but I imagine they have to be similar in yeast suspension, can I use this to determine when my secondary has cleared up and ready for me to keg?

I am not lazy but I just don't want to move my secondary around and stir up the yeast which is in my keezer lagering.
