  • Raptors' Kelly Olynyk: Good to go Thursday

    Olynyk (back) isn't on the injury report for Thursday's game versus the Nets.

    Olynyk is set to play Thursday despite suffering a lower back strain against Indiana before the All-Star break. Olynyk is averaging 9.3 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.0 steals and 1.7 assists in 16.7 minutes across his first three appearances with Toronto.

  • Raptors' Kelly Olynyk: Out for remainder of game

    Olynyk won't return to Wednesday's game versus the Pacers due to a lower back strain, Michael Grange of reports. He will finish the contest with zero points (0-1 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and two rebounds in seven minutes.

    After being acquired from Utah at the trade deadline, Olynyk had turned in a pair of solid outings off the bench in his first two appearances with Toronto, but he played just two quarters Wednesday before his night came to an early end. With Olynyk out for the rest of the contest, the Raptors could lean more heavily on starting center Jakob Poeltl in the second half. Olynyk will have extended time to heal up from the back injury, as Toronto won't play its next game until Feb. 22 versus the Nets.

  • Raptors' Kelly Olynyk: Forms balanced platoon

    Olynyk provided 17 points (6-10 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds, two assists and three steals over 21 minutes during Monday's 122-99 loss to the Spurs.

    Olynyk and Jakob Poeltl (12 points, six rebounds, 20 minutes) formed a balanced split at center on Monday. Olynyk should not be counted on as a reliable source of steals, but he appears to be comfortable in the Raptors' offense and has been chipping in consistently on the glass this season.

  • Raptors' Kelly Olynyk: Unlikely to get run Friday

    Olynyk (recently traded) is unlikely to see playing time during Friday's game against the Rockets, Doug Smith of the Toronto Star reports.

    Both Olynyk and Ochai Agbaji (recently traded) are available for Friday's matchup, but head coach Darko Rajakovic said during his pregame press conference that neither player is expected to play against Houston. Olynyk will have a chance to catch his breath and get acclimated to his new team following Thursday's trade, but because he won't have a chance to practice with his new team prior to Saturday's game versus Cleveland, he could remain out for the second leg of the back-to-back set.

  • Raptors' Kelly Olynyk: Available for Friday's game

    Olynyk (recently traded) is available for Friday's game against the Rockets, Blake Murphy of reports.

    Olynyk was traded from the Jazz to the Raptors on Thursday and will be able to make his team debut a day later. He'll likely serve as the primary backup at center behind Jakob Poeltl.

  • Raptors' Kelly Olynyk: Traded to Toronto

    Olynyk was traded from the Jazz to the Raptors along with Ochai Agbaji on Thursday in exchange for Kira Lewis, Otto Porter and a 2024 first-round pick, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Olynyk's role has declined during the 2023-24 season, as he's averaged 8.1 points, 5.1 rebounds and 4.4 assists in 20.4 minutes per game over 50 appearances with the Jazz while mainly playing off the bench. He'll presumably have to settle for a bench role behind Scottie Barnes and Jakob Poeltl with his new team, but Olynyk has the potential to have fairly well-rounded performances as a reserve.

  • Jazz's Kelly Olynyk: Plays well in limited role

    Olynyk recorded 10 points (4-6 FG, 2-2 FT), four rebounds and seven assists over 16 minutes during Tuesday's 124-117 win over the Thunder.

    This was a terrific showing for the veteran, but this continues an alarming trend of low workloads. Over his last 10 games, Olynyk has averaged 8.5 points, 4.4 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 0.6 three-pointers in just 17.9 minutes per game.

  • Jazz's Kelly Olynyk: Pops for 19 in Thursday's win

    Olynyk registered 19 points (8-11 FG, 3-4 3Pt), four rebounds and two assists over 21 minutes off the bench during Thursday's 123-108 victory over the Wizards.

    The veteran center scored in double digits for only the third time in 13 games this month. When the Jazz frontcourt is healthy, Olynyk has had trouble finding consistent minutes and usage behind Lauri Markkanen and John Collins, but he is taking advantage of his opportunities by shooting 58.6 percent from the floor and 50.0 percent (9-for-18) from beyond the arc in January.

  • Jazz's Kelly Olynyk: Scores nine in defeat

    Olynyk registered nine points (4-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds and two assists over 14 minutes during Tuesday's 153-124 loss to the Pelicans.

    Although Olynyk was held to a single-digit scoring total for a fifth consecutive game Tuesday, he was efficient from the floor during the blowout loss. He posted a double-double against the Raptors on Jan. 12 but has averaged just 6.0 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.6 assists in 15.8 minutes per game over five outings since then.

  • Jazz's Kelly Olynyk: Records double-double from bench

    Olynyk chipped in 11 points (4-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 10 rebounds, five assists and one steal across 21 minutes during Friday's 145-113 win over the Raptors.

    The Jazz's center position holds one of the highest variances in the league, as the team tends to let the hot player go if they are fitting well into the game script. Olynyk stepped in for 21minutes after tepid output from starter John Collins and notched his third double-double of the season. With Collins and Omer Yurtseven also on the depth chart and a solid Lauri Markkanen at the four, the fantasy viability for Olynyk will continue to be limited.

  • Jazz's Kelly Olynyk: Serviceable performance Wednesday

    Olynyk notched nine points (3-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds, four assists and one steal over 20 minutes during Wednesday's 154-148 overtime win over Detroit.

    Olynyk continues to do just enough off the bench, keeping himself firmly in the standard league conversation. Despite averaging just 23.0 minutes per game over the past month, Olynyk has been a top 90 player in that time. With averages of 8.9 points, 5.2 rebounds, 6.0 assists and 1.0 steals, he makes for a viable center option, especially for anyone needing out-of-position dimes.

  • Jazz's Kelly Olynyk: Dishes 10 dimes off bench

    Olynyk supplied 19 points (8-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-3 FT), six rebounds, 10 assists, one block and one steal in 28 minutes during Saturday's 117-109 victory over the Heat.

    Olynyk came off the bench for the second straight contest following a run of three consecutive starts, but he nonetheless put together one of his best performances of the campaign. The big man's 19 points Saturday were the second-most he has scored this season, while his 10 assists were also his second-best mark through 31 contests. Olynyk's role has fluctuated throughout the campaign, but he's maintained some deep-league fantasy relevance thanks to a well-rounded skill set that has led to per-game averages of 8.2 points, 5.4 boards, 4.7 dimes, 0.8 three-pointers and 0.8 steals over 22.1 minutes.

  • Jazz's Kelly Olynyk: Back to bench

    Olynyk will move to the bench for Thursday's game against the Pelicans.

    Olynyk started the past three games for Utah, but the Jazz will turn back to second-year center Walker Kessler. The center rotation in Utah has been a revolving door so far, but Olynyk still figures to play a sizable role no matter where he begins the game.

  • Jazz's Kelly Olynyk: Season-high outing as top scorer

    Olynyk racked up 27 points (10-16 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three rebounds, six assists and four steals over 35 minutes during Thursday's 119-111 win over Detroit.

    Olynyk led all players in Thursday's contest in scoring while connecting on a trio of threes and finishing with a season-high point total in the victory. Olynyk posted his first game of the season with 20 or more points, making at least three threes for the third time.
