Kelly Olynyk put his strained left shoulder to the test Monday on the practice court at AmericanAirlines Arena. Whether the shoulder is ready for a return to the Miami Heat's rotation remains on hold.

Held out the past six games after injuring the shoulder in a Feb. 5 loss to the Orlando Magic, Olynyk said Monday the question now is whether feeling good is good enough.

"It's fun to get back into it, just tested it out, try a little stuff here and there," he said after his first five-on-five work since he was caught on a screen by Magic center Bismack Biyombo. "But it felt pretty good. Obviously, still, I'm not 100 percent to where it was, but it's on its way."

Olynyk said pain, stiffness and limitations remain.

'Yeah, a little bit of everything," he said. "It just doesn't feel like my right shoulder. So, if you know that, then you know it's not the same."

He was non-committal about a return Tuesday night against the Philadelphia 76ers, the second game of a five-game homestand.

"We'll see," he said. "Definitely see how it responds in the morning, how shootaround goes and then go from there.

"It felt all right. It's good to get out there, test it out. There's obviously some stuff that wasn't as easy to do as other stuff, but it felt all right."
