Olynyk (knee) is listed as probable for Thursday's game against the Magic, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
It's increasingly likely that Olynyk will make his preseason debut against Orlando. While there remains a chance Olynyk's held out Thursday, he's clearly trending in the right direction in his recovery from a right knee bruise.
Olynyk (knee) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Shandel Richardson of The Athletic reports.
It's another sign of positive progress for Olynyk, who is yet to play in the preseason while nursing a bruised right knee. It remains unlikely that Olynyk plays in either of the Heat's two remaining preseason games, but there looks to be a chance he'll be healthy enough for the start of the regular season.
Olynyk (knee) will be held out of Monday's preseason tilt with the Hawks, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
While Olynyk's made improvements in his recovery from a right knee bruise, he's still been unable to endure a full practice and isn't game ready. With James Johnson (coache's decision) also out, look for Meyers Leonard and Derrick Jones Jr. to see extensive run, with KZ Okpala, Kyle Alexander and Chris Silva also factoring in.
Olynyk (knee) was able to take steps forward in recovery from a right knee bruise, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.
While Olynyk has made improvements in his recovery, he was still unable to complete a full practice. Until he's able to do so, he'll likely be held out from game action. At this point, it seems like Olynyk's a good bet to miss Monday's tilt with the Hawks, which could open up additional run for James Johnson and Derrick Jones Jr.
Olynyk (knee) will not play in Wednesday's preseason game against the Hornets, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Olynyk will stick on the bench for another exhibition game as he continues to nurse a bruised right knee. The big man will remain day-to-day ahead of next week's preseason game vs. the Hawks.
