BOSTON – Boston Celtics forward Kelly Olynyk has a right shoulder injury that will keep him out for about two weeks.
General manager Danny Ainge revealed the prognosis on a conference call with reporters after standing pat at the NBA trade deadline on Thursday.
Ainge said Olynyk received treatment during the All-Star break. The injury won’t require surgery, he said, but it does need more time.
Olynyk is averaging 10.1 points and 4.3 rebounds per game.
Ainge said he came close on a deal Thursday but didn’t want to bring in a player as a short-term fix who would become a free agent after the season.
