Kelly Olynyk's return to the floor from a right ankle sprain will take a little longer than initially anticipated. He was supposed to be out two weeks with a return to the floor targeted for tonight's game against Denver. However, Boston Celtics' coach Brad Stevens said Olynyk's return would likely be sometime next week. "From what I've been told, he went through an individual workout today," Stevens said. "He is going to hopefully feel good tomorrow and go light in practice tomorrow." Stevens said Olynyk was doubtful to play in Sunday's game at New York, but wouldn't rule him out for Tuesday's game at Brooklyn. "He'll be day-to-day starting next week," Stevens said. "Tuesday might be a stretch. We'll see. He's close to being back." Olynyk suffered the injury on Nov. 22 against Indiana. Tonight will be the seventh straight game he has missed because of the injury.
