|Ankle - Out until at least early February|

Celtics' Kelly Olynyk uncertain about return
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(1/29/15) Celtics center Kelly Olynyk is uncertain about when he'll return from an ankle injury, according to ESPN.
Olynyk spoke to reporters on Thursday while wearing a protective boot on his ankle. He said he's unsure when he'll be able to resume basketball activities. Olynyk injured himself during last Thursday's game. He rolled his ankle while awkwardly landing on another player's foot. There's a chance Olynyk will be sidelined until late February due to the issue.
Olynyk expressed uncertainty about when he would be able to return from the injury. "It could be a week, it could be three weeks, it could be a month -- you never know," he said. "I'm just trying to get better and evaluate it each day, and take the next step whenever it’s deemed necessary."
Olynyk is averaging 11.1 points and 5.4 rebounds per game.

Celtics' Kelly Olynyk heads to locker room with ankle issue
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(1/22/15) Celtics center Kelly Olynyk went to the locker room early on Thursday with a sprained right ankle injury, according to Boston.com.
Olynyk twisted his ankle after landing awkwardly on Thomas Robinson's foot. Olynyk scored five points in 20 minutes. He turned the ball over four times during the contest. After being evaluated, it was detemined Olynyk would not return to the contest. Following the game, coach Brad Stevens said Olynyk would not be available for the rest of the weekend due to the injury, according to Celtics.com.
|Kelly Olynyk was considered one of the most NBA-ready prospects in last year's draft, but he failed to make much of an impact as a rookie. He appeared in 70 games for the Celtics, averaging 8.7 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 20 minutes per game, while shooting 46.6 percent from the field. He did nail 40 3-pointers at a 35.1 percent success rate, and showed a few more flashes of his offensive potential as the season went on. He averaged 16.6 points and 7.3 rebounds in just 25.8 minutes per game in the month of April, a sign of what he can do when given a bit more responsibility. We cannot assume Olynyk will be given that much rope when this season begins, so Fantasy owners should consider him just a late-round option in deeper category-based leagues on Draft Day.
