Olynyk recorded 20 points (8-11 FG, 4-6 3Pt), five rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 23 minutes during Saturday's 125-105 win over the Nuggets. Olynyk had one of his best games of the season Saturday, popping for a season-high 20 points in just 23 minutes, taking advantage of a short-handed Nuggets squad. It was the fifth time this season that he's drilled at least four three-pointers. The performance was also the first time Olynyk saw at least 20 minutes since Feb. 22 -- about half a month before the season went on hiatus.
Olynyk scored a team-high 27 points (10-16 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT) while adding eight rebounds, two assists and a steal in 29 minutes off the bench during Saturday's scrimmage against the Jazz. The Heat fell 101-99, but not from a lack of effort on Olynyk's part. With Bam Adebayo not quite ready to see game action, Olynyk will get plenty of run as Miami gears up for the resumption of the season, but his workload is likely to be a lot smaller when the games begin to count.
Olynyk posted 12 points (3-7 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 6-7 FT), six rebounds, four assists and one blocked shot across 23 minutes in Wednesday's 104-98 scrimmage win over the Kings. Although Bam Adebayo is the unquestioned starter at center for Miami, his absence from the lineup provided an excellent opportunity for Olynyk, who is first in line to spell Adebayo when the season restarts. Although he didn't have much luck from beyond the arc on Wednesday, his facility with the long-range ball (43.2 percent over 56 games) allows him to be a big perimeter target as well as a viable pick-and-roll presence in the backcourt.
Olynyk finished with 16 points (5-5 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds and two assists across 16 minutes during Wednesday's 116-113 victory over the Magic. Olynyk has been on fire in limited minutes over the past five games, averaging 11.6 points on 5.0 shots, plus 4.6 rebounds and 3.2 assists in only 15.6 minutes. Wednesday's performance also put him in rare company, becoming one of only nine players over the past 10 years to post at least 16 points, five rebounds and two assists in 16 or fewer minutes. He'll cool down eventually, but fantasy owners in deep leagues can enjoy Olynyk's production while it lasts.
Olynyk posted 13 points (5-8 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 0-2 FT), nine assists and seven rebounds across 19 minutes in Friday's 126-118 win over the Mavericks. Olynyk was mainly instrumental after Miami's five-point deficit to start the fourth quarter. The 28-year-old had five points (2-3 FG, 1-1 3Pt), six assists and three rebounds in eight minutes to help the Heat come back and win. It is uncertain if Olynyk will continue to come off the bench, but the Gonzaga product could see more minutes if he can show signs of keeping a similar pace.
