Kelly Olynyk News
Houston Rockets forward/center Kelly Olynyk looked like prime Dennis Rodman against Dallas on Wednesday, finishing a 102-93 win with a career-high 18 rebounds. He got into the double-double column with 10 points and added three assists with two steals and two blocks on 4-for-9 shooting from the field. Olynyk has been a perfect fit for the Rockets, and head coach Stephen Silas has been confidently using him next to Christian Wood, who had a 22-point, 10-rebound double-double Wednesday night. Olynyk will head into Friday's battle with the Clippers averaging 17.4 points, seven rebounds, three assists, 1.1 steals and one block in a Rockets uniform.
Houston Rockets forward/center Kelly Olynyk led the team with 26 points in Sunday's loss to the Pelicans, shooting 9-for-17 from the field with a 5-for-13 record behind the arc. He grabbed eight rebounds and recorded three assists and one block in 33 minutes off the bench. Olynyk has adapted very quickly to his new surroundings, and he's playing some very good basketball right now, averaging an 18-5-3 line in Rockets uniform. He's been a bench contributor in recent games, but the 29-year-old still gets plenty of burn and even spends time on the court together with starting center Christian Wood. The Rockets finish off a back-to-back set on Monday against the Suns, which could give bench guys like Olynyk a chance to play a bigger role.
Houston Rockets forward/center Kelly Olynyk, who produced a 16-4-4 line in his team debut with three steals, did even better in Monday's loss to Memphis, scoring a team-high 25 points on 10-for-17 shooting with nine rebounds, two assists, two blocks and a steal. He was 0-for-5 from downtown but a perfect 5-for-5 at the charity stripe. Christian Wood (illness) has missed both of the games in which Olynyk has played, which has played a part in his good start in a Rockets uniform, and it will be interesting to see if the two can coexist on the team. Wood is battling with a non-COVID illness, so he could return any day. The Rockets are back in action on Wednesday against a defensively lackluster Brooklyn team.
Miami Heat forward/center Kelly Olynyk had a nice 20-point outing in Thursday's win over Orlando, shooting 7-for-14 from the field and 4-for-8 from downtown. He also had seven rebounds with two assists, two steals, and one block. Olynyk has had two back-to-back strong outings with Bam Adebayo (knee) missing. Adebayo's problem doesn't seem to be serious, but he also won't play on Friday against Chicago, which puts Olynyk in another nice spot to perform well. The Bulls are very bad at handling frontcourt players, and it's a pace-up spot for Miami, so Olynyk is a good streaming and DFS option.
