It would be huge to have a healthy and productive Kelly Olynyk in the lineup all year.

With training camp a month away, Kelly Olynyk is optimistic that he’ll be ready to go for the start of camp after having offseason shoulder surgery. Via WEEI:

“My shoulder’s doing alright, man. I should be ready to rock,” he said. “It’s good. Still got about a month or so left, which you can put a lot of work in in a month, get it stronger. It’s coming along, motion’s pretty good, need to get it stronger, give it time to heal.

“We’ll get everybody together and just see how not only if it’s ready, but when it’s the best time to ease into it and gradually improve it and kind of roll things out.”

Shoulders (as with most injuries) can be tricky, so I usually try to take a conservative approach to managing expectations for recovery schedules. Still, this seems like good news.
