Top Kelly Olynyk News

  • Pistons' Kelly Olynyk: Solid bench contribution

    Olynyk provided 17 points (4-7 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 8-9 FT), five rebounds, five assists and one block in a 131-101 loss to Milwaukee on Friday.

    Olynyk got a huge boost in production after Marvin Bagley was ruled out due to a hip injury. The veteran forward doubled his point average over the last 10 games and should produce again Sunday if Bagley misses Detroit's regular-season finale.

  • Pistons' Kelly Olynyk: Not on injury report

    Olynyk is not on the injury report for Friday's game against Milwaukee.

    The big man has been rested a few times down the stretch, and that was the case for the Pistons' last game Wednesday against Dallas. While he'll be available Friday, it's no guarantee he'll see meaningful minutes, as Detroit looks to give some more run to younger players.

    Olynyk (rest) is out Wednesday against the Mavericks.

    Detroit continues to give the veterans some rest down the stretch. More minutes should be in store for Isaiah Livers and Braxton Key.

  • Pistons' Kelly Olynyk: Out for rest

    Olynyk is resting Friday against the Thunder.

    Olynyk gets the night off on the second half of a back-to-back set. With Marvin Bagley (hip) also out, more minutes should be in store for Isaiah Livers and Braxton Key.

  • Pistons' Kelly Olynyk: Joins the fun in win

    Olynyk registered 16 points (6-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), four rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 18 minutes during Wednesday's 122-101 victory over the Hawks.

    Olynyk (ankle) returned from a one-game absence to supply his best performance in nearly a month. Despite appearing in 25 games since returning from a Grade 2 MCL sprain in January, Olynyk has reached double-digit scoring just five times. Nonetheless, he led the Detroit bench in scoring Wednesday and flashes quality production at times.

  • Pistons' Kelly Olynyk: Off injury report

    Olynyk (ankle) is off the injury report for Wednesday's game against the Hawks.

    Olynyk will end up missing just one game due to left ankle soreness. He hasn't been providing much for fantasy managers lately. Over his past 10 games, he's averaged 7.5 points, 3.6 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 16.7 minutes.

  • Pistons' Kelly Olynyk: Ruled out Monday

    Olynyk (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Trail Blazers.

    Olynyk dealt with an ankle injury ahead of Monday's matchup, and the issue will force him to miss at least one game. With Jerami Grant (knee) also out, Marvin Bagley, Isaiah Livers and Saddiq Bey should see increased run.

  • Pistons' Kelly Olynyk: Questionable with ankle soreness

    Olynyk (ankle) is questionable for Monday's game against Portland, Omari Sankofa II of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Olynyk has averaged only 7.2 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 15.4 minutes over the past five games, and he's now dealing with the ankle issue. If available Monday, the 31-year-old could have an increased role since Jerami Grant (knee) has already been ruled out.

  • Pistons' Kelly Olynyk: Underwhelming stretch continues

    Olynyk contributed six points (2-4 FG, 2-3 3Pt), five rebounds, two assists and one steal over 17 minutes during Saturday's 113-109 loss to the Cavaliers.

    Olynyk's subpar season continued Saturday, playing fewer than 20 minutes for the eighth time in his past nine games. Over that span, he has scored in double-digits only once, adding very little else. The Pistons are clearly pointed in a different direction here, and Olynyk does not have a meaningful role. He can absolutely be a 12-team asset when afforded sufficient playing time but for this season, that appears highly unlikely.

  • Pistons' Kelly Olynyk: Fails to deliver in victory

    Olynyk had five points (2-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds and two assists across 18 minutes during Thursday's 108-106 victory over Toronto.

    Olynyk was a nonfactor once again Thursday, continuing what has been a hugely underwhelming stretch of games. Coming off a red hot finish to last season, Olynyk was viewed as a lock to be a 12-team asset this season, something that has obviously not come to fruition. Barring a massive shift in direction, he can be safely dropped in all competitive formats.

  • Pistons' Kelly Olynyk: Hits game-winner in OT win

    Olynyk posted 20 points (7-13 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, three assists and two steals in 24 minutes during Sunday's 127-126 overtime win over the Hornets.

    Olynyk found himself in unfamiliar territory in the closing seconds, but his fadeaway jumper marked the first game-winning score of his nine-year career. Coming into Sunday's game, Olynyk was in an abysmal scoring drought, averaging only 5.2 points per game over his 11 previous contests. To the dismay of fantasy managers, Olynyk has had trouble securing more than a limited role this season, but he was aided Sunday by the absence of Marvin Bagley (ankle).

  • Pistons' Kelly Olynyk: Scores 15 points off bench

    Olynyk closed Wednesday's 112-111 win over the Celtics with 15 points (5-8 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, one assist and two steals across 17 minutes.

    Olynyk has struggled to find any consistency following a knee injury and a stint in COVID-19 protocols, but he showed signs of bouncing back with his best performance since Jan. 19. The 30-year-old averaged 12.5 points, 5.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.4 steals in 22.9 minutes during the first 10 games of the season and will look to get back to that level of consistent production when the Pistons resume action following the All-Star break.

  • Pistons' Kelly Olynyk: Fails to score in diminished role

    Olynyk had zero points (0-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt), three rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal across 13 minutes during Monday's 103-94 loss to the Wizards.

    Held scoreless for the first time this season, Olynyk played a season-low 13 minutes. Olynyk has appeared in only 20 games due to various ailments, but this performance was a far cry from his averages of 13.4 points and 5.7 rebounds per game over his first 11 appearances. The 30-year-old is a buyout candidate as the season goes on.
