  • Kelly Olynyk - F - Miami Heat

    Kelly Olynyk blocked two shots in addition to his nine points and four rebounds in 24 minutes in Tuesday's season finale.

    Olynyk's averages dropped across the board this season with the only bump being in free throw percentage. He played 79 games (starting 36), so his season totals were in up in the top-120 even though his per-game production hung around the 160 ranks. Olynyk is just 27 and is plenty capable of being a fantasy starter if he can just get (and keep) a role similar to the one he had in his starts this season (where he averaged almost 27 mpg). With Bam Adebayo and most likely Hassan Whiteside still around next season, there isn't much of a chance that he suddenly gets a larger share of the pie.

    Kelly Olynyk scored 14 points on 4-of-11 shooting while adding six rebounds, an assist, two steals, a block and three 3-pointers on Monday.

    Olynyk has struggled a bit shooting the ball, but he's still providing stats across the board and his role and minutes aren't fluctuating which means he's a must-own player. If he hits a couple more 3s here his line really shines.

    Kelly Olynyk scored 12 points on 4-of-10 shooting while adding 11 rebounds, an assist and a steal in 32 minutes on Saturday.

    He's a must-own player down the stretch since the coaching staff clearly trusts him more than Hassan Whiteside, who has only been logging 15 minutes per game for the past two weeks already. Olynyk is capable of posting all-around stat lines which makes him such a valuable asset to have.

    Kelly Olynyk was everywhere in Saturday's win over the Wizards as he dropped a full line highlighted by 14 points, seven rebounds, five assists, two 3s, two steals and three blocks.

    Fantasy owners were ecstatic to see him post that all-around stat line tonight in 38 minutes of action. He's a must-own player especially with Coach Erik Spoelstra trusting his sweet-shooting big man to make an impact nightly.

    Kelly Olynyk bounced back on Monday, scoring 18 points on 7-of-10 shooting while adding nine rebounds, an assist, a steal and a 3-pointer.

    Olynyk was on a bit of a cold streak, but it's great news for owners to see him log 36 minutes. Even with his struggles, coach Spoelstra seems committed to playing him and with three more games this week he's a must-own player.

    Kelly Olynyk had a game to forget on Sunday going 0-for-8 from the field with just one point in Sunday's big loss to the Raptors.

    Olynyk still had five boards, two assists, four steals and no turnovers in 24 minutes, but he could not find his shot. He'll continue to do a little bit of everything for you and is a must-own player despite the 0-fer today.

    Kelly Olynyk did a bit of everything in Friday's 126-110 win over the Cavs as he dropped a full line highlighted by 15 points, one rebound, three dimes, two 3s, two steals and one block in 25 minutes.

    Olynyk is balling out of control lately as the 15th best player in 9-cat over the last two weeks prior to tonight's game. He's a must-own guy in all formats right now.

    Kelly Olynyk stayed hot on Wednesday as he led the Heat to victory with 22 points on 8-of-14 shooting, 11 rebounds, five 3-pointers, one assist, two steals and one block in 45 minutes.

    Olynyk has been hot as of late and is a top-50 value over the last two weeks. Keep riding the surge until the wheels fall off. He's in full beast mode now.

  • Kelly Olynyk - F - Miami Heat

    Kelly Olynyk scored 12 points on 3-of-8 shooting to go with five rebounds, an assist, a block, two 3-pointers and five fouls on Monday.

    Olynyk was on a bit of a hot streak heading into tonight, but he struggled with foul trouble which disrupted his momentum and limited his production. The Heat look much better when he's on the floor and Coach Spoelstra seems committed to him so he's a must-own guy still, even with Hassan Whiteside (left hip strain) back in the fold.

    Kelly Olynyk was an unstoppable force as the Heat burned the Nets 117-88 on Saturday, leading the team with 25 points on 9-of-13 shooting and a full stat line.

    This was arguably Kelly O's best game of the season as he not only scored aggressively and with efficiency but also posted strong peripherals with six rebounds, four dimes, three 3s, one steal and two blocks. This is a glimpse of Olynyk's fantasy ceiling and boy it's a beauty. He's been on an upward trend lately and should be owned in all leagues.

    Kelly Olynyk (right ankle sprain) is available for Saturday's game against the Nets.

    Olynyk has been playing his best basketball of the season recently, and does not look to miss any time. James Johnson's return may take a few minutes from him, but he's still good to go for fantasy purposes.

  • James Johnson - F - Miami Heat

    James Johnson (left shoulder strain) is questionable to play on Saturday against the Nets.

    Johnson has already missed four games with the shoulder injury and with Kelly Olynyk (ankle) also questionable, we might see a lot of Derrick Jones Jr., who is listed as probable, at the 4. We’ll have an update before the game tips off.
