NBA suspends J.R. Smith two games, Kelly Olynyk one game


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/27/2015) The NBA has suspended Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith two games and Celtics forward Kelly Olynyk for their actions in Sunday's Game 4 in Boston, according to ESPN.

Smith punch forward Jae Crowder in the head while jumping up for a rebound and was immediately ejected. Crowder landed awkwardly on his leg and was later diagnosed with an ACL sprain. He will miss the first two games of the Eastern Conference Semifinals. Smith is averaging 9.8 points per game this postseason.

Olynyk grabbed forward Kevin Love's arm while fighting for a loose ball, dislocating his shoulder. He will serve his suspension to begin the 2015-2016 season. 


Celtics' Kelly Olynyk denies trying to injure Cavaliers' Kevin Love


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/27/2015) Celtics center Kelly Olynyk was stunned that Cavaliers forward Kevin Love said he intentionally tried to injure Love on the play in which the forward suffered a dislocated shoulder Sunday, the Boston Herald reports.

"I thought it was a bush league play," Love said. "Olynyk was in a compromising position, had no chance to get the ball and it’s just too bad that he would go to those lengths to take somebody out of the game and do that to someone. I have no doubt in my mind that he did that on purpose."

Olynyk's opinion of what happened on the first-quarter play was in stark contrast to Love's words.

"That’s ridiculous," Olynyk said after Sunday's game. "I would never intentionally hurt Kevin or anyone else. He locked my arm up, I locked up his as we were fighting for a loose ball. You lock up arms all the time in this league."

Love is set to undergo an MRI Monday but is expected to miss a minimum of two weeks, which could keep him sidelined through the team's second-round matchup if not longer.

"I was definitely surprised (by what Love said)," Olynyk said. "In basketball, I don’t think anyone is trying to hurt anyone. For (Love), it’s very unfortunate. I know they’re trying to make a run right now."


Celtics' Kelly Olynyk needs five stitches for cut on head


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2015) Celtics center Kelly Olynyk needed five stitches to close up the cut on the back of his head after Wednesday's 105-100 win over the Bucks, ESPNBoston.com reports.

Olynyk didn't return to action after suffering the injury and finished with 16 points on 5 of 8 shooting, including 4 of 5 shooting from 3-point range, in 22 minutes off the bench. Game 1 against the Cavaliers is scheduled for 3 p.m. Sunday, so Olynyk has a few days to recover before playoff season kicks off.


Celtics forward Kelly Olynyk plays despite nasty black eye


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/1/2015) Celtics forward Kelly Olynyk was not supposed to play Wednesday after taking an elbow to the eye in pregame warmups. The forward was considered doubtful, but managed to play through it, scoring 19 points on 7 of 10 shooting from the field, including 3 of 4 from 3-point range, in Boston's 100-87 win over the Pacers.

''He felt OK,'' coach Brad Stevens said after the game, per the Associated Press. ''It was more of a vision thing; how well could he see? He was saying he could see pretty well and the doctors felt pretty good about him playing. They stitched him up. I think it looked a little worse than it felt. I think that's an obvious statement.''

Olynyk added two rebounds and two assists to his totals. It was his third straight game scoring in double figures.


Celtics forward Kelly Olynyk doubtful for Wednesday with eyelid injury


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/1/2015) Celtics power forward Kelly Olynyk is listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Pacers with an eyelid laceration, reports the Boston Globe.

Stevens has reason not to change Celtics' struggling starting lineup


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(3/28/2015) In contention for the seventh and eighth playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, the Celtics' starting five have been outscored this season by 11.3 points, worse than the NBA-worst Knicks, giving coach Brad Stevens thoughts of changing it up, reports MassLive.com 

"We've had that discussion almost every day," Stevens said. 

But his relucatance to change the starting five is due to the strong bench play from forward Jae Crowder and guard Isaiah Thomas, especially when they're on the floor at the same time with reserve center Kelly Olynyk and guard Jonas Jerebko

"The first six minutes of a 48-minute game are the first six minutes," Stevens said. "You want to start as well as you can, but you also want to create rotations that you like. If your second unit's really playing at a high level, then you have to factor that in - that if you mix it up, your second unit might not play at a high level."


C Kelly Olynyk rounding back into form for Celtics


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(3/24/2015) After struggling through a few contests, center Kelly Olynyk had a solid game Monday against the Nets, one he feels will put him on the right track as the Celtics make a late playoff push, according to MassLive.com.

Olynyk racked up 18 points against the Nets, this after scoring just 27 points in his last five contests. In four of those games, Olynyk scored four points or less. 

"Any time you're struggling, you just need to see a couple things go in or a couple things go your way, just to get back on track," he said. "It's not that you lose (confidence). It's just a hiatus, maybe."
