Celtics center Kelly Olynyk returns Wednesday for first time in 18 games
"I don’t know what to expect," Stevens said of Olynyk's return, according to NESN. "I watched him play 3-on-3 (Tuesday), and he looked good to me. Hopefully, he can give us what he gives us, and that is a skilled offensive guy and a guy defensively with some size."

The 7-footer was taken with the 13th pick in the 2013 draft. He averaged 8.7 points and 5.2 rebounds per game as a rookie last season and was named to the NBA All-Rookie Second Team.
In 40 games this season, Olynyk is averaging 11.1 points and 5.4 rebounds per game while shooting 40 percent better from the floor than he did a year ago.
The Celtics are 23-35 and currently sit two games behind the Brooklyn Nets for the Eastern Conference's final playoff spot.
