Olynyk (foot) will not compete for Canada
Multiple reports indicate Olynyk will attend the camp, but will not participate due to the foot injury.
"He’s so keen about wanting to play, but the Celtics had some concerns," national team head coach Jay Triano told the Toronto Star.
In June, Boston traded up to No. 13 to select the 7-foot Olynyk, who shined at the Orlando Summer League while averaging a team-best 18 points and 7.8 rebounds over 24.3 minutes per game in five appearances. He was voted to the league's all-summer first team.
A native of Toronto who played his high school ball in British Columbia, Olynyk has been a part of Canada's national program in recent years. His father, Ken, coached Canada's junior men's national team for 13 years.
Plantar fasciitis is inflammation of the tissue on the bottom of the foot and can often be a nagging injury -- one with few treatments other than preventative measures, including rest.
While Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge has tempered expectations for Olynyk, his strong summer performance suggested he might be able to immediately help a young Celtics team as it navigates a rebuilding process starting with the 2013-14 season.
