Kelly Olynyk News
Detroit Pistons center Kelly Olynyk (rest) has been removed from the injury report ahead of Friday's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. He has sat out two of the last three games due to rest purposes. Although, Olynyk should be available for the shorthanded Pistons on Friday. Braxton Key has been serving as the backup center, but should take a backseat to Olynyk. Fantasy managers in deep leagues should consider Olynyk a possible streaming option, assuming he does play on Friday.
The Detroit Pistons have ruled out power forward Marvin Bagley III (wrist) and center Kelly Olynyk (rest) for Friday night's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. According to the injury report, Bagley has a left hip strain, but he may just be receiving a day of rest like his teammate, Olynyk. Isaiah Stewart should dominate the center minutes on Friday and we should see rookie Isaiah Livers get a good amount of run at power forward. It wouldn't be surprising to see another rookie, Jamorko Pickett, make his way into the rotation as well.
Detroit Pistons power forward/center Kelly Olynyk (ankle) has been deemed questionable to play in Monday's contest vs. Portland due to a sore left ankle. Olynyk has carved out a niche among Detroit's second unit over the past month and a half, although averaging just 17.2 minutes per night in that span has put him on the wrong side of the waiver wire fence. With Jerami Grant (knee) already ruled out against a Trail Blazers defense that has yielded at least 118 points in 12 games, Marvin Bagley III and Isaiah Livers would presumably step into larger -- and DFS-relevant -- roles should Olynyk be held out.
Detroit Pistons center Kelly Olynyk has been placed in the league's health and safety protocols, ruling him out indefinitely, beginning with Sunday's game vs. Denver. Olynyk played in just two games since returning to action after a two-plus month layoff due to a sprained knee. Isaiah Stewart stands to remain the team's starting center with Trey Lyles likely to see a larger role within the second unit without Olynyk available. While the veteran big man has scored in double figures in nine of his 12 outings this season, his availability has been extremely limited, making him a difficult season-long asset to hold down a roster spot.
