Boston Celtics second-year big man Kelly Olynyk wore a protective boot over his sprained right ankle while meeting with reporters after Thursday's practice and said he's uncertain when he'll resume basketball activities while waiting for pain and swelling to subside. Olynyk injured the ankle when he landed awkwardly on the foot of Portland's Thomas Robinson chasing a rebound in last Thursday's win over the Trail Blazers. Olynyk returned home from the team's extended road trip for further testing and could be sidelined util late February, especially with an extended All-Star break looming next month. "It’s tough with something like an ankle, everyone is different," said Olynyk. "It could be a week, it could be three weeks, it could be a month -- you never know. I'm just trying to get better and evaluate it each day, and take the next step whenever it’s deemed necessary." ESPN.com

Dr. Michael Farber, the Nets’ team physician, will continue to examine Teletovic after he returns to the New York area, and while Teletovic will miss the remainder of the season, Farber believes the 29-year old will “make a full recovery.” “Diagnostic testing was arranged and he was then observed until testing showed that he reached the expected therapeutic range,” Farber said. “We are pleased to say that he reports no symptoms at this time… This was a true collaborative effort between our medical team and training staff and the local physicians at the Los Angeles hospital where Mirza was treated. I am really pleased with how Mirza has progressed.” Wall Street Journal
