F - MIA
Kelly Olynyk has exercised his $13.6 million player option for the 2020-2021 season, per Adrian Wojnarowski.
This was the right move for Olynyk who averaged 8.2 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 1.7 assists per game while shooting 40.6-percent from beyond the arc. He offers some fantasy value due to his position eligibility and three-point shooting but he won't be a reliable source for minutes played as long as Bam Adebayo is healthy.
Kelly Olynyk saw 37 minutes in a 124-114 loss to the Lakers in Game 2 of the NBA Finals, providing 24 points (9-16 FG, 3-7 3PT, 3-5 FT) and adding nine rebounds, two assists, with two turnovers.
Olynyk looked great on the offensive end, putting up the second-most field attempts for the Heat and was the only Miami player to score 20+ points aside from Jimmy Butler on Friday night. His nine rebounds tied a playoff career-high, and he's likely going to serve as the primary beneficiary if Bam Adebayo is going to miss Game 3 on Sunday.
Heat F/C Kelly Olynyk (knee) will be active for Game 4 Sunday.
Olynyk missed Game 3 with the knee injury, but will return to the lineup for Game 4. Priced at just $3,400, he makes for a great value on DraftKings today, even if he only sees 15-20 minutes off the bench.
Kelly Olynyk (knee) is questionable for Sunday's Game 4 against the Bucks.
Olynyk missed Game 3 due to a bruised right knee. He's averaging 12.0 minutes the first two contests of the Bucks-Heat playoff series. An update on Olynyk's status should be provided just before 6:30 PM EST tip-off. Look for Meyers Leonard to see expanded role if Olynyk is out.
Kelly Olynyk put up eight points (3-11 FG, 2-3 FT, 0-5 3PT), seven rebounds, three assists and one steal across 29 minutes during the Heat's 114-92 win over the Pacers on Monday.
After shooting lights-out across Miami's first four seeding games, Olynyk appears to be cooling off a bit, shooting 30 percent from the field over his last two games. He will look to regain his shooting stroke over the Heat's final two seeding games before heading into the playoffs on August 17th.
