Kelly Olynyk injured his ankle tripping over little kid

The luck of the Irish was certainly not with Kelly Olynyk this weekend.

According to Chris Forsberg of ESPN, the Boston Celtics center rolled his right ankle tripping over a little kid while warming up for practice on Sunday and was unable to participate.

Jay King of adds that the child in question was one of the assistant coach’s sons. Apparently, the Celtics have something of a family environment and are often in the presence of a number of children, be they players’ kids, coaches’ kids, or otherwise.

Olynyk, 25, is averaging 8.4 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 2.0 assists per game this season. The Celtics play the Charlotte Hornets on Monday, and it’s now unclear if Olynyk will be able to suit up for that contest. But at the very least, Olynyk probably has Cole Hamels going, “I know that feel, bro.”
