1 Min Read

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Miami Heat big man Kelly Olynyk is expected to miss the FIBA World Cup after injuring his knee during an exhibition match.

Olynyk has been a regular on the Canadian national team, but has decided to give himself as much time as he needs to recover.

The injury occurred during a friendly match between Canada and Nigeria, as Olynyk slipped on a wet spot and had to subsequently be helped to the locker room.

The Heat get their regular season underway on Oct. 23 with a home matchup at American Airlines Arena against the visiting Memphis Grizzlies.

Expect Olynyk to be a full go by then.
