Heat's Kelly Olynyk: Thrives in supporting role in Game 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olynyk produced 17 points (5-9 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), seven rebounds, two steals and one assist in 31 minutes off the bench in Sunday's 115-104 win over the Lakers in Game 3 of the NBA Finals.

After moving in and out of coach Erik Spoelstra's rotation during the Eastern Conference Finals series against the Celtics, Olynyk has emerged as a key big man for Miami out of necessity in the NBA Finals with starting center Bam Adebayo not having played since exiting Game 1 with a strained neck. Though Meyers Leonard has garnered the starts the past two games sans Adebayo, Olynyk has absorbed the majority of the minutes at center on both occasions. After totaling 24 points and nine rebounds in the Heat's Game 2 loss, Olynyk delivered a strong follow-up effort Sunday. Adebayo remains day-to-day ahead of Tuesday's Game 4, and Olynyk will once again be in store for substantial playing time if the All-Star can't go.

Heat's Kelly Olynyk: Should play Game 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olynyk (knee) is expected to play in Tuesday's Game 5 against Milwaukee, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

While the knee issue kept Olynyk out of Game 3, he returned for Game 4 to play 10 minutes off the bench. Coach Erik Spoelstra said pregame that he expects Olynyk to again be available after he was initially deemed questionable.

Heat's Kelly Olynyk: Questionable with bruised knee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olynyk is considered questionable for Tuesday's Game 5 against Milwaukee with a bruised right knee.

The big man missed Game 3 with the knee issue, and he was a game-time call before ultimately being cleared to play in Sunday's Game 4. Olynyk is apparently still nursing the injury, but considering he played Sunday, chances are he'll again be available off the bench for Game 5.

Heat's Kelly Olynyk: Suiting up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olynyk (knee) will be available for Sunday's Game 4 matchup against the Bucks.

Olynyk missed Game 3 of the series with the knee issue, but after going through warmups he was deemed healthy and ready to play. It's unclear how much run the veteran will receive during Sunday's contest, but it will surely cut into minutes that went to Meyers Leonard in the past.

Heat's Kelly Olynyk: Game-time call Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olynyk (knee) will be a game-time decision for Sunday's Game 4 against Milwaukee, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Olynyk, who is officially questionable, will apparently attempt to warm up and then the Heat will decide whether or not he can take the court. Meyers Leonard will likely see increased run if Olynyk is ruled out.

Heat's Kelly Olynyk: Questionable for Game 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olynyk (knee) is questionable for Sunday's Game 4 against the Bucks.

Olynyk missed Game 3, but it's possible he'll return for Game 4 with the Heat up 3-0. If he's out again, Meyers Leonard could see run once more.

Heat's Kelly Olynyk: Out for Game 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olynyk (knee) is out for Friday's Game 3 against the Bucks.

A bruised right knee will keep Olynyk out for the first time since Feb. 1. In his stead, it's possible Meyers Leonard sees action.

Heat's Kelly Olynyk: Questionable for Game 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olynyk is listed as questionable for Friday's Game 3 against Milwaukee due to a bruised right knee.

Olynyk picked up in the injury during the Heat's Game 2 win on Wednesday, when he went for 11 points and five rebounds in 16 minutes off the bench. Keep an eye on the big man's status after shootaround Friday morning.

Heat's Kelly Olynyk: Starting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olynyk will start Friday's game against the Pacers, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Olynyk will draw the start with Bam Adebayo (rest) -- among others -- out. In the bubble, Olynyk is averaging 13.0 points, 5.7 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.0 steals in 27.3 minutes.

Heat's Kelly Olynyk: Cleared Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olynyk (thumb) has been cleared to play Wednesday against the Thunder, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Olynyk will play through a bruised thumb in the Heat's second-to-last seeding contest. In the bubble, he's averaging 13.7 points, 6.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.2 steals in 28.7 minutes.

August 11, 2020 06:04 PM
Heat's Kelly Olynyk: Probable Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olynyk is listed as probable for Wednesday's game against OKC due to a bruised thumb.

Olynyk is on track to play, but he could be hampered, as the bruise is to this dominant right thumb. The center is coming off an eight-point, seven-rebound, three-assist performance in Monday's win over Indiana.

Heat's Kelly Olynyk: Coming off bench Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olynyk will come off the bench Saturday against the Suns, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Olynyk will come off the bench as coach Erik Spoelstra is opting to start Derrick Jones, presumably to keep up with the Suns on defense. In Olynyk's 55 appearances off the pine this season, he's averaging 8.0 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 18.8 minutes.

Heat's Kelly Olynyk: Fills stat sheet in spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olynyk registered 15 points (4-11 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 5-6 FT), eight assists, six rebounds, two steals and one block in 32 minutes during Tuesday's 112-106 win over the Celtics.

Olynyk started in place of Jimmy Butler (ankle) and delivered a strong effort on both ends of the court. The Canadian big man has looked serviceable in Miami's first three games since the restart -- racking up 52 points, 15 rebounds and 13 assists -- and could remain a strong play across most formats, particularly if Butler is forced to miss additional games moving forward.

Heat's Kelly Olynyk: Entering starting five
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olynyk will enter the starting lineup Tuesday against Boston in place of Jimmy Butler (ankle), Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

With Butler nursing a sore ankle, the Heat will go big with both Olynyk and Bam Adebayo up front, while Jae Crowder, Kendrick Nunn and Duncan Robinson will comprise the remainder of the lineup. Olynyk has shown well off the bench of late, scoring 37 total points over Miami's first two seeding games.

Heat's Kelly Olynyk: Scores 17 off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olynyk had 17 points (6-13 FG, 4-11 3Pt, 1-1 FT) and four rebounds in Monday's loss to Toronto.

It was another strong game for Olynyk, who went for 20 points off the bench in the Heat's first seeding game against Denver. Olynyk currently has the clear advantage over Meyers Leonard, who was a DNP-CD on Monday.

Heat's Kelly Olynyk: Season-high 20 points in re-opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Heat's Kelly Olynyk: Leads way against Jazz
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Heat's Kelly Olynyk: Steps up in first scrimmage game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Heat's Kelly Olynyk: Amazing per-minute production
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Heat's Kelly Olynyk: Provides surge off the bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
