Kelly Olynyk Gives Optimistic Update on His Health as Miami Heat Gear Up for Season Resumption
- Updated: July 3, 2020
Olynyk spoke about his health on Friday.
Kelly Olynyk of four-month break: "I was definitely banged up at the beginning of the season. … But my body feels better than ever right now." Says it feels like it's the beginning of a new season.

On the season, Olynyk has averaged 7.7 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game. While his numbers certainly do not jump off the page, he has been a meaningful member of Miami’s rotation.
Olynyk has played in 59 of the Heat’s 65 total games.
While it’s great news that Olynyk is not dealing with any nagging injuries, the Heat may very well be missing some players at the onset of the NBA’s restart due to the novel coronavirus.
On Friday, the team decided to shut down its facilities.
The next time Miami will get the chance to practice, it will be firmly inside the NBA’s bubble in Orlando, Fla.
Hopefully Olynyk and his Heat teammates enjoy a healthy season from here on out.
