Miami Heat forward Kelly Olynyk suffered a left shoulder strain and is unsure of the timetable for his return, according to Barry Jackson.

Olynyk has pain and was told not to move his shoulder. The Heat should be re-evaluating him today to set a course for the future. Olynyk was injured when he took an illegal screen from Bismack Biyombo.

Here’s a video of Olynyk talking about the injury from Barry Jackson.

The Heat ended up losing the game to the Magic without Olynyk. He started the game, and Jordan Mickey started the second half in place of him, which did not work out well for Miami.

A further update on Olynyk should happens soon.
