Will Olynyk get his starting job back once he's cleared to play? I don't think so and I don't think he should start, and I felt that he should have never started to begin with. I think he's good, but he needs to improve greatly before starting. I think the injury will set him back a bit as well. Bass has kind of find his way after being inconsistent during the first couple of weeks of the season.
He was supposed to be out two weeks with a return to the floor targeted for tonight's game against Denver.
However, Boston Celtics' coach Brad Stevens said Olynyk's return would likely be sometime next week.
"From what I've been told, he went through an individual workout today," Stevens said. "He is going to hopefully feel good tomorrow and go light in practice tomorrow."
Stevens said Olynyk was doubtful to play in Sunday's game at New York, but wouldn't rule him out for Tuesday's game at Brooklyn.
"He'll be day-to-day starting next week," Stevens said. "Tuesday might be a stretch. We'll see. He's close to being back."
