12/15/2014 9:29:00 PM
Description: Celtics center Kelly Olynyk scored a team-high 30 points during Monday's win versus Philadelphia.
Insight: He did so off the bench and finished 12-of-17 from the field, 3-of-3 from the line, and 3-of-5 from deep. Olynyk also had nine rebounds, one assist, three steals, two blocks, and four turnovers. As long as Olynyk continues to come off the bench, his vlalue will be limited.
 
11/14/2014 10:08:00 PM
Description: Celtics center Kelly Olynyk scored a team-high 21 points in Friday's loss to Cleveland.
Insight: He was 8-of-13 from the field and 3-of-4 from the line, and also had six rebounds, one assist, two steals, one block, two 3-pointers, and one turnover.
 
11/9/2014 11:23:00 AM
Description: Celtics center Kelly Olynyk recorded a double-double in Saturday's win against the Bulls.
Insight: He was 6-of-9 from the field and 4-of-6 from the line for 18 points. Olynyk also had 11 rebounds, one assist, one block, and four turnovers. He is averaging 13.3 ppg and 7.3 rpg, making him a solid option at center moving forward.
 
10/18/2014 7:08:00 PM
Description: Celtics center Kelly Olynyk will start at center to start the season.
Insight: Coach Brad Stevens has liked what he sees thus far from Olynyk, and the center position is his. He will provide numbers across the board and is someone to keep an eye on late in drafts.
 
Hot4/14/2014 9:49:00 PM
Description: Boston C/PF Kelly Olynyk had another big game Monday at Philadelphia, scoring a career-high 28 points and grabbing nine rebounds.
Insight: Olynyk has played 37 minutes per game over his last two with both Jared Sullinger and Kris Humphries out of the lineup and had 25 points and 12 boards Saturday.
 
4/13/2014 9:17:00 AM
Description: Boston C/PF Kelly Olynyk poured in 25 points Saturday in a 111-99 victory over the Cavs.
Insight: Olynyk's 12 rebounds were a career-high. Jared Sullinger and Kris Humphries were both absent on Saturday, which is probably why Olynyk was able to log 39 minutes. He's overachieved as a rookie, leading all first-year big men in points (8.2 ppg) and rebounds (5.1 rpg) despite being the No. 13 pick in the draft.
 
3/9/2014 8:50:00 PM
Description: Celtics C/PF Kelly Olynyk was productive Sunday in a win against Detroit.
Insight: Olynyk (7.6 ppg, 4.9 rpg) put up 18 points in 18 minutes, giving him a point per minute. He also added six rebounds and two assists. He's been a pleasant surprise for the Celtics and should have a chance to make the All-Rookie team.

Insight: He'll come off the bench Wednesday versus Golden State. Olynyk's 7.1 ppg average this season is seventh-best among rookies.
 
3/1/2014 6:40:00 PM
Description: Celtics C/PF Kelly Olynyk will not be available Saturday against Indiana. He's out with a toe injury. SOURCE: Gary Washburn, Boston Globe
Insight: It's Olynyk's 12th absence of the season. Kris Humphries (7.8 ppg, 5.6 rpg) will be filling in at power forward.
 
2/28/2014 5:40:00 PM
Description: Boston center Kelly Olynyk (toe) is doubtful for Saturday's game against Indiana, according to Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe.
Insight: He sat out Wednesday with a toe injury after scoring 21 points with eight rebounds and four assists on Feb. 24. The team is expected to get Jared Sullinger back from a concussion Saturday so Olynyk won't have any fantasy value when he returns to the lineup.
 
2/26/2014 5:57:00 PM
Description: Boston center Kelly Olynyk (toe) will miss Wednesday's game against the Hawks, according to Celtics announcer Sean Grande.
Insight: With Jared Sullinger (concussion) also out, look for Kris Humphries and Brandon Bass to play most of the frontcourt minutes.
 
2/12/2014 10:07:00 PM
Description: Celtics center Kelly Olynyk has recorded the first two double-doubles of his career in the last two games.
Insight: Olynyk had 15 points and 10 boards over 31 minutes Wednesday against the Spurs after putting up 14 and 11 in 21 minutes Monday. Olynyk could see big minutes after the All-Star break if veterans Brandon Bass and Kris Humphries are traded, but while they are still on the team he probably won't put up fantasy-worthy numbers.
 
1/17/2014 10:05:00 PM
Description: Boston rookie Kelly Olynyk came out of nowhere with a career-high 25 points, seven assists, five rebounds, two steals and a block in 33 minutes Friday against the Lakers.
Insight: Olynyk had scored just 39 points total his last nine games. He saw extended playing time Friday as the Kris Humphries-Brandon Bass tandem only played 30 minutes combined, but there's no way to know what rotation coach Brad Stevens will go with next game.
 
12/31/2013 4:37:00 PM
Description: Boston rookie Kelly Olynyk netted a career-high 21 points in Tuesday's loss to Atlanta.
Insight: The 24 minutes Olynyk logged Tuesday were his most since November 20th against San Antonio. Olynyk should get more opportuntities as the season continues especially if starters Brandon Bass and Jared Sullinger struggle like they did on Tuesday (combined 11 points on 3-of-12 shooting).
 
12/13/2013 7:20:00 PM
Description: Celtics center Kelly Olynyk is back after missing ten games with an ankle injury. SOURCE: A. Sherrod Blakely, Comcast Sportsnet New England
Insight: He'll come off the bench with Jared Sullinger getting another start at center. If Olynyk impresses head coach Brad Stevens, he could begin challenging Brandon Bass for minutes at the four.
 
12/11/2013 7:39:00 PM
Description: Boston rookie Kelly Olynyk won't be available for Wednesday's tilt against the Clippers. According to MassLive's Jay King, however, he could be back Friday against the Knicks.
Insight: Olynyk sprained his ankle in late November and hasn't played since. Once he does come back, Olynyk could cut into Jared Sullinger's minutes.
 
12/7/2013 1:59:00 PM
Description: Celtics coach Brad Stevens said Kelly Olynyk (ankle) will miss Sunday's game.
Insight: Olynyk hasn't played since spraining his ankle on Nov. 22, but he has started doing some individual workouts. "He told me he's feeling a little better but I don't know exactly what that means," Stevens said on Saturday. "I know he won't be playing tomorrow."
 
12/6/2013 9:23:00 PM
Description: Celtics coach Brad Stevens said Kelly Olynyk (ankle) is "close" to returning, according to Jay King of masslive.com.
Insight: Olynyk went through an individual workout Friday and could be back next week. He'll be listed as day-to-day started Monday. The rookie hasn't played since spraining his ankle on Nov. 22.
 
11/23/2013 6:23:00 PM
Description: Celtics coach Brad Stevens says rookie Kelly Olynyk could be out a "couple" of weeks after spraining his ankle Friday against the Pacers. SOURCE: A. Sherrod Blakely, Comcast Sportsnet New England
Insight: He didn't make the trip to Atlanta with the rest of the team. Olynyk hasn't shot the ball particularly well this year (38.9 percent in 14 games), but the fact that he's getting almost 23 minutes a game as a rookie has to be encouraging. Clearly Stevens has faith in his young big man.
