Kelly Olynyk was seeking a 2nd opinion on his shoulder and Danny Ainge revealed that he will be missing a couple of weeks.

Green Street " Danny Ainge believes Kelly Olynyk likely out ‘two weeks’, will not need surgery

"He definitely won’t be playing for the next couple of weeks but we’re not sure. Right now, it’s still sore and bothering him. We don’t need any surgery or any long-term cures for him. But right now, it’s a short-term ailment that will keep him on the sidelines for, I’m guessing, two weeks. That’s just what I think. We’ll see, though."

Olynyk said he thought the shoulder was partially separated, but reiterated that he is not expected to need surgery. Ainge said on Friday that Olynyk has a sprained AC joint, and that the hope is still that Olynyk will be back more quickly than three to four weeks.

Get well soon Kelly.

This may provide Jordan Mickey with an opportunity to play.  Especially since it sounds like the team is moving ahead with buying out David Lee.

Ainge will be speaking with David Lee and his agent, Mark Bartelstein, to work on a buyout for the 32-year-old forward. The sides had said they would do so if Lee wasn’t traded -- and his inclusion was only going to happen if his contract was needed to make a deal with a star work.
