Forward Kelly Olynyk will reportedly be unable to compete for Canada at the upcoming FIBA World Cup.

Several media reports say that Olynyk will be sidelined by a knee injury he sustained last week.

The 28-year-old Olynyk was originally expected to miss just one week after slipping on a wet spot in the third quarter of Canada's 96-87 exhibition win over Nigeria on Aug. 7.

It was Canada's first game in its final push to next month's FIBA World Cup.

Olynyk is expected to be ready to play for the NBA's Miami Heat by the start of the season.

He averaged 10 points, 1.8 assists and 4.7 rebounds per game last season for Miami.
