Celtics' Kelly Olynyk: Still 'a couple weeks away'
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olynyk (shoulder) remains "a couple weeks away" from returning to the court, per coach Brad Stevens.

While Olynyk has already returned to 5-on-5 work, the Celtics are planning to bring the big man along slowly to minimize the risk of re-injury. In his absence, Amir Johnson figures to start alongside Al Horford up front, while Tyler Zeller and Jonas Jerebko will be slated for slightly increased roles off the bench.

Celtics' Marcus Smart: Ruled out of opener, hopes to return soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smart (ankle) has been ruled out of Wednesday's season opener against the Nets.

Smart's sprained left ankle has improved of late, but he remains without a firm return timetable. The third-year guard estimated that he'll be back in "about a week," which would likely mean he'll miss at least the first three games of the season. Following the opener Wednesday, Boston plays at Chicago on Thursday and at Charlotte on Saturday before returning home to host the Bulls next Wednesday, Nov. 2.

Celtics' Marcus Smart: Remains without timetable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smart (ankle) is improving but remains without a return timetable, Scott Souza of the Providence Journal reports.

Smart sprained his left ankle in last Wednesday's preseason finale and has remained limited in the day since, but coach Brad Stevens stopped short of ruling the guard out of the team's season opener Wednesday against the Nets. At this point, it appears rather unlikely that Smart will be available Wednesday, but more should be known following Tuesday's session. If Smart is ultimately held out, Terry Rozier would be in line for increased minutes.

Celtics' James Young: Wins 15-man roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Young clinched a spot on the Celtics' 15-man roster Monday, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports.

After shooting a woeful 34.1 percent from the floor while making just 60 appearances over his first two seasons in the NBA, Young's spot on the Celtics' roster looked to be on thin ice heading into training camp, but the 21-year-old was able to beat out fellow former first-round pick R.J. Hunter for the 15th and final spot. Young didn't show much signs of improvement during the preseason, so he'll presumably remain outside of coach Brad Stevens' rotation to begin 2016-17 and could once again be ticketed for extended time in the D-League.

Celtics' Marcus Smart: Not ruled out for opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smart (ankle) has not been definitely ruled out for the Celtics season opener against the Nets, Chris Forsberg of ESPN reports.

Smart is already out of his protective boot, and has been able to work out around the weight room. Head coach Brad Stevens indicated on Saturday that Smart "looked a lot better". The team does not expect him to practice Monday, but they will see how the young guard is progressing at that point in time. Smart was originally expected to miss a couple weeks of action, so this is optimistic news. The third year guard averaged 27 minutes per game in each of his first two season, and figures to see a similar workload this season.
