The Heat got a nice night from new starting center Kelly Olynyk on Wednesday despite a lackluster five points, as he tallied eight rebounds, four assists, three steals, one 3-pointer and one block in 33 minutes.
Olynyk did some damage despite a very limited scoring role in this one, and you can see why he’s always been such a tease in fantasy circles. He’s got middle-round upside thanks to diverse production like this while Hassan Whiteside is out. KO also has standard league potential even when Whiteside returns, so hopefully he keeps up the nice games and earns more minutes for the stretch run. Scoop Olynyk up for the short term and see where it goes.
