    Celtics' Kelly Olynyk: Out for five months post surgery

    Olynyk (shoulder) said that he will be out for about five months, Scott Souza of the Providence Journal reports. Olynyk underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder Monday after aggravating an existing injury in Game 1 of the NBA Playoffs against the Atlanta Hawks. Recovery for Olynyk is said to take in the realm of five months, give or take, before he can resume contact drills. Being that Olynyk underwent surgery on Monday, that will put his tentative return at around the beginning of the 2016-17 NBA season in mid-October. Because Olynyk elected to have the offseason surgery, it means that he will not be able to suit up for the Canadian national team at the 2016 Olympics in Rio.

    Celtics' Kelly Olynyk: Underwent successful shoulder surgery

    Olynyk underwent successful athroscopy surgery on his right shoulder Monday, Adam Himmelsbach of the Boston Globe reports. Olynyk underwent the procedure to fix recurrent subluxations, which are similar to dislocations in the fact that the bone dislodges from the shoulder socket. However with subluxations, its only temporary and the bone usually pops back into place within a short period of time on its own. Despite the successful surgery, Olynyk still remains without a concrete timetable for return, although previous players with similar injuries typically needed roughly five months for recovery. That timeline would put his availability for the season opener into question, so he could miss a few games at the start of the year pending his progress through the Celtics' rehabilitation program.

    Celtics' Kelly Olynyk: Needs surgery on shoulder

    Olynyk (shoulder) acknowledged he will need offseason surgery, but he may put it off until after the Summer Olympics, CSN Mid-Atlantic reports. The surgery is expected to require about five months of recovery, which means it could threaten Olynyk's availability for the start of the 2016-17 season, even if he has the procedure as soon as possible. He'll likely make a decision within the next week or two, as the Canadian national team will need to re-assess its frontcourt if Olynyk isn't available.

    Celtics' Kelly Olynyk: Still deciding on shoulder

    Olynyk is still deciding whether or not he'll require offseason surgery on his shoulder, Scott Souza of the Providence Journal reports. Olynyk was limited to just 32 total minutes in the Celtics' Round 1 series against the Celtics due to a shoulder injury, which he re-aggravated during Game 1. While he played in each of the final three games of the series, he was clearly hampered and was held scoreless in each contest. The specifics of Olynyk's injury are still somewhat unclear, but GM Danny Ainge confirmed Wednesday that surgery may be an option. Regardless, the 25-year-old figures to be available by the time training camp rolls around in the fall.

    Celtics' Kelly Olynyk: Limited in return

    Olynyk returned to action Sunday, playing only four minutes during Sunday's Game 4 win in Boston. Olynyk missed Games 2 and 3 of the series due to a re-aggravated shoulder injury suffered during Game 1. His return Sunday had little effect on the game, as The Clynyk scored zero points and grabbed two rebounds during his brief time on the flour. Hopefully Olynyk can contribute more Tuesday night in Atlanta.

    Celtics' Kelly Olynyk: Available for Sunday's game

    Olynyk (shoulder) is available to play in Sunday's Game 4 matchup with the Hawks, Jay King of MassLive.com reports. Olynyk has missed the Celtics' past two games and he may sit out once again. Coach Brad Stevens said that Olynyk would be suited up and available off the bench, but wouldn't go so far as to guarantee whether or not Olynyk would play. If Olynyk does indeed play expect him to be limited, and look for Tyler Zeller and Jared Sullinger to once again handle most of the minutes load off the bench behind starter Jonas Jerebko.

Olynyk has been dealing with soreness in his shoulder, which kept him out of Game 2. Head coach Brad Stevens said, "They've been working around the clock for Kelly to get back. It's ultimately Kelly's call on that based on how he feels." With the big man out, look for Tyler Zeller and Jared Sullinger to both see increased minutes off the bench, behind starter Jonas Jerebko.

    Celtics' Kelly Olynyk: Remains 'questionable at best'

    Olynyk (shoulder) is considered "questionable at best" by coach Brad Stevens. Olynyk has maintained the questionable designation since missing Tuesday's Game 2, but it appears as though his sore right shoulder hasn't made much tangible progress. The big man will be held out of practice Thursday, which certainly isn't a good sign, but the team will wait until Friday morning to issue a more definitive update.

    Celtics' Kelly Olynyk: Ruled out for Game 2

    Olynyk (shoulder) has been ruled out for Tuesday's Game 2 against the Hawks. Initially deemed a game-time call, Olynyk has been ruled out after testing his shoulder during pregame warmups. The big man, who played 12 minutes in Game 1 before aggravating a previous shoulder issue, should be considered day-to-day in advance of Friday's Game 3. In his place Tuesday, expect Tyler Zeller and Jared Sullinger to each see increased minutes, as could Jonas Jerebko off the bench.
