Forward Kelly Olynyk left the Celtics’ 139-134 overtime win over the Clippers Wednesday night in the second quarter. Following a collision with Clippers center DeAndre Jordan, Olynyk was awarded two free throws, which he hit before immediately leaving the game.

After the game, Celtics coach Brad Stevens told NESN.com Olynyk suffered a subluxation to his right shoulder. He was taken to New England Baptist Hospital for X-rays.

Despite the scare, Olynyk should be good to go by the end of the All-Star break, Celtics general manager Danny Ainge said on 98.5 The Sports Hub’s “The Toucher and Rich Show’’ Thursday.
