Olynyk (suspension) will sit out Wednesday's season opener against the 76ers.

It's just a one-game ban for Olynyk, who earned the suspension after he recklessly battled the Cavaliers' Kevin Love for a loose ball in Game 4 of the Celtics' first-round playoff series loss, which resulted in a dislocated elbow for Love. Olynyk is slated to come off the bench this season, but looks to be included in a four-man frontcourt rotation that also features Tyler Zeller, David Lee, and Amir Johnson. In Olynyk's absence, the slimmed-down Jared Sullinger could absorb more minutes than usual off the bench.
