Olynyk has bruised knee, likely for World Cup

Miami Heat big man Kelly Olynyk suffered a bruised knee in an exhibition, but he is still expected to play in the FIBA World Cup for Canada, coach Nick Nurse said Thursday.

Olynyk slipped and fell during the third quarter of Canada’s win over Nigeria in a FIBA exhibition game on Wednesday. X-rays were negative, and Olynyk will sit out a week, including an exhibition game on Friday in Winnipeg, Nurse said.

Olynyk is part of Canada’s national team preparing for the FIBA World Cup.
