Enes Kanter    C  Knicks

 

 

Enes Kanter said he'll be "fine" despite picking up a neck injury on Saturday vs. the Thunder. The injury caused him to see double after Andre Roberson came down on the back of his head while the two were fighting for a rebound. "I think I'm good," Kanter said. "There was a point I saw two refs but I think I'm fine. I'm not going to talk about it. I'm going to use the neck bracelet. Just get some treatment and get ready for the next game." The injuries are piling up for Kanter, but he's fully expected to play on Monday vs. Charlotte.

Kanter scored 14 points (7-10 FG) to go with 11 rebounds across 27 minutes in Tuesday's 113-109 overtime win against the Lakers. While Kristaps Porzingis grabs all of the offensive headlines, Kanter has been dominating the boards as of late. The New York center is averaging 10.7 rebounds over his last seven games since he returned to the lineup from a back injury. Of those seven games, Kanter has recorded a double-double in five of them. While he is averaging a steady 13.4 points, Kanter's 10.3 rebounds per game are more than sufficient moving forward.

Enes Kanter (back) picked up four fouls in 18 minutes on Sunday, finishing with eight points, five rebounds, one assist and one steal. Kanter was on crutches when he entered the arena tonight, but he said this injury wasn't related to the back spasms that cost him three games last month. "It is the back, but the other side," he said before the game. "I got kneed in the hip and I lost my balance and it affected my leg. So I had a hard time walking and standing up." Kanter gets a day off before facing the Lakers on Tuesday, but owners should certaintly double-check his status for that game.

Kanter is dealing with some discomfort in his hip, but will still play in Sunday's game against the Hawks, Ian Begley of ESPN reports. Kanter reportedly took a shot to the hip in Saturday's game against Chicago, which is now giving him some lingering pain. However, it's not serious enough where it will keep Kanter out of action, so he should be in the starting lineup as usual. That said, there's certainly a chance coach Jeff Hornacek monitors his minutes a bit, so Kanter could be a bit of a risky play for Sunday's DFS slate.

Enes Kanter (hip) will play Sunday vs. the Hawks. Kanter was seen limping badly following Saturday's loss to the Bulls, but apparently, he's recovered enough to get out there tonight. The Hawks have been giving up big lines to opposing bigs this season, so go ahead and get Kanter active.

Enes Kanter was limping badly after Saturday's game against the Bulls. He said he was kneed in the hip late in the game, but he could play on Sunday against the Hawks. Kanter will probably be looking at a game-time call, but then again the Knicks may just keep him out in what could be a battle for lottery balls. He had 10 points, 11 rebounds, four assists and no turnovers in 28 minutes on Saturday.

Enes Kanter posted an 18-point, 16-board double-double during Sunday's loss to the Magic, adding two assists, one steal and three turnovers through 31 minutes of play. As per usual, Kanter did an excellent job on the glass with his 30.2 rebounding rate, and a not-so-excellent job on the defensive end with his 117.1 defensive rating and -11.5 net rating. Still, he figures to be working with minutes in the 30s and should see a nice uptick in usage for however long Kristaps Porzingis (ankle) and Tim Hardaway Jr. (leg) are out, so he's going to be one of the primary beneficiaries of these Knicks' injuries.

Kanter contributed 22 points (7-9 FG, 8-9 FT), 14 rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 25 minutes during Wednesday's 115-86 win over the Heat. Kanter returned to the lineup with a bang, posting a season high in scoring while notching his eighth double-double in 18 appearances. He has been superb through the first two months, and he'll have time to rest his back with the team off until Sunday.

Enes Kanter (back) will replace Kyle O'Quinn in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Heat. O'Quinn's minutes could dip back to the teens tonight with Kanter active, and Willy Hernangomez might drop from the rotation entirely. Kanter has missed the past three games, so Jeff Hornacek may want to keep his minutes in the lower-20s, making him less attractive in DFS.
