Celtics C Kelly Olynyk appears primed for bench role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boston Celtics center Kelly Olynyk has come off the bench in both of the Celtics' exhibitions in Europe, scoring 11 points (5-for-11 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and grabbing seven rebounds in that span.

Though coach Brad Stevens hasn't confirmed as much, it seems the Celtics are prepared to enter the season with a starting frontcourt of David Lee and Tyler Zeller , with Olynyk, Jared Sullinger , Jonas Jerebko , and Amir Johnson left to contend for minutes off the bench. Neither Lee nor Zeller are overwhelming superior options to those bench players, so expect Stevens to utilize a rather deep rotation of big men, at least initially. As a result, Olynyk could still come close to seeing the 22.3 minutes per game he averaged in 2014-15.

Celtics guard R.J. Hunter shooting poorly through two games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

R.J. Hunter produced two points (1-6 FG, 0-3 3Pt), three assists, a rebound, and a steal in 16 minutes during Thursday's exhibition win over Real Madrid.

Hunter has struggled with his shot in both of the Boston Celtics ' preseason contests in Europe, going a collective 2-for-10 from the field and 1-for-6 from behind the arc. The 21-year-old was selected in the first round primarily due to his prowess from three-point range, so if he fails to find his stroke in what's left of the Celtics' preseason schedule, he may not open the regular season as a member of coach Brad Stevens' rotation.

Celtics guard Evan Turner skips Thursday's exhibition with knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boston Celtics guard Evan Turner (knee) remained out for Thursday's exhibition against Real Madrid, Adam Himmelsbach of the Boston Globe reports.

Though he was listed as probable heading into the game, Turner ended up missing his second consecutive preseason contest with a right knee strain. Coach Brad Stevens deployed Jae Crowder as the starting small forward Thursday, but the job still appears to be Turner's for the taking once he puts the injury behind him. It seems likely that Turner was just held out Thursday for a precautionary purposes rather than because of a setback, so look for him to make his preseason debut Oct. 14 against the Brooklyn Nets .

Celtics forward Amir Johnson sits out Thursday with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boston Celtics forward Amir Johnson missed Thursday's exhibition against Real Madrid, Adam Himmelsbach of the Boston Globe reports.

A bug has been working its way around the Celtics locker room recently, so it's possible Johnson will be isolated from the team for a few days until he shows improvement with his condition. The illness shouldn't jeopardize Johnson's availability for the majority of what remains of the Celtics' preseason schedule, but the big man's chances of opening the regular season in a starting role appear to have dissipated. Coach Brad Stevens has used David Lee and Tyler Zeller as his starting frontcourt for both of the Celtics' exhibitions thus far, leaving Johnson, Jared Sullinger , Kelly Olynyk , and Jonas Jerebko to fight for reserve minutes.

Celtics guard Marcus Smart struggles from field Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart scored seven points (1-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 5-6 FT), grabbed five rebounds, and handed out two assists in 21 minutes during Thursday's preseason match against Real Madrid.

It was far from a strong outing for Smart, who shot the ball poorly and racked up five fouls in limited court time. Chalk it up as nothing more than a bad day for Smart, who shot 4-for-5 from the field and dished out six assists in the Celtics' first preseason game. Since he's only in his second season in the league, Smart's play could vacillate wildly from game to game, but he appears to be entrenched as the Celtics' starting point guard.
