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.

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.
 
11/23/2013 2:43:00 PM
Description: Celtics center Kelly Olynyk (ankle) did not travel with the team to Atlanta and will miss Saturday's game.
Insight: Olynyk sprained his right ankle Friday night. Jared Sullinger (illness) is also questionable, so we could see a lot of Vitor Faverani and Kris Humphries at center.
 
11/22/2013 9:05:00 PM
Description: Celtics center Kelly Olynyk sprained his right ankle during Friday's game against Indiana and will not return, according to A. Sherrod Blakely of csnne.com.
Insight: A Celtics official said holding out the rookie for the rest of Friday's game is precautionary, but he has been deemed questionable for Saturday's game. Kris Humphries started the second half at center. Coach Brad Stevens seems to be down on Vitor Faverani at the moment.
 
11/11/2013 10:14:00 PM
Description: Celtics center Kelly Olynyk had a career-high 16 points with seven rebounds, five assists, one block, one steal and two threes over 26 minutes Monday against Orlando.
Insight: Olynyk replaced Vitor Faverani in the starting lineup Saturday at Miami and stayed there Monday. The rookie from Gonzaga should be added in most leagues.
 
11/6/2013 10:14:00 PM
Description: Boston rookie big man Kelly Olynyk started the second half of Wednesday's game at center and ended up playing a season-high 29 minutes. He scored 14 points and had eight rebounds, three assists and a steal in the game.
Insight: Starter Vitor Faverani played just six minutes. Olynyk has played at least 25 minutes in three straight games after playing 15 mpg the first two. However, we should continue to see Olynyk, Faverani, Jared Sullinger and Brandon Bass share the frontcourt playing time, limiting the fantasy value of all four.
 
Hot7/14/2013 7:21:00 PM
Description: Boston rookie Kelly Olynyk is averaging 18.0 ppg in the Orlando Summer League.
Insight: He's also shooting 57.8 percent from the field. Of course, the level of competition in Orlando isn't anywhere near what Olynyk will be facing once the regular season starts. It's good to see Olynyk playing well but at the same time, take it all with a grain of salt.
