    Thunder's Enes Kanter: Double-doubles off bench in Saturday loss

    Kanter collected 14 points (7-10 FG), 15 rebounds and an assist over 20 minutes in Saturday's 116-108 loss to the Warriors. The 23-year-old backup center provided a nice burst of offense in the second half, and his fall-away jumper helped tie the game at 104 late in the fourth quarter before the Warriors eventually pulled away. The five-year pro provides an active and formidable presence down low, and has now shot 56 percent or higher in five straight games while collecting three double-doubles over that span. While he'll occasionally throw in a single-digit scoring effort, Kanter has proven aptly capable of offering solid contributions in points and rebounds over relatively modest playing time.

    Thunder's Enes Kanter: Scores another big-time double-double

    Kanter posted 22 points (9-16 FG, 4-4 FT), 10 rebounds, two steals, and one block in 26 minutes during the Thunder's 116-108 win versus the Rockets on Friday. Kanter's teammates Steven Adams and Serge Ibaka combined to play 50 minutes on Friday, allowing Kanter ample playing time. This is his second 20-10 game in a row, and he is producing well off the bench lately, scoring in double figures in five of his last seven appearances. Nevertheless, it will be tough for Kanter to re-produce efforts like this on a regular basis given his role.

    Thunder's Enes Kanter: Posts 23 points, 10 boards Wednesday

    Kanter contributed 23 points (10-16 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 10 rebounds, and two blocks in 23 minutes during the Thunder's 126-123 win versus the Timberwolves on Wednesday. Kanter responded well following Tuesday night's stinker at Madison Square Garden. However, expecting this type of production going forward is likely to result in disappointment for fantasy owners, and Kanter's best use is still in deeper leagues.

    Thunder's Enes Kanter: Held to two points Tuesday

    Kanter was held to two points (0-6 FG, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, and one assist over 18 minutes in Tuesday's 128-122 win over the Knicks. Kanter saw his playing time take a hit with Steven Adams (elbow) returning from a two-game absence, and didn't make a strong case to see increased duties behind the starting center after shooting 0-for-6 from the field. So long as Adams' injury doesn't limit him going forward, Kanter will likely have to settle for a 16-to-24-minute role most nights, which will make it difficult for him to produce with consistency.

    Thunder's Enes Kanter: Scores 16 points, grabs nine boards Friday

    Kanter contributed 16 points (7-10 FG, 2-2 FT) and nine rebounds in 24 minutes during the Thunder's 109-106 win against the Mavericks on Friday. Kanter came off the bench despite Steven Adams missing the match-up with a strained elbow. However, Kanter continues to play well in limited minutes, averaging 13.6 points, 6.4 rebounds, 0.4 steals, 0.4 blocks, and 0.2 assists in 23 minutes per appearance over the last five games. Given his lack of heavy minutes though, it's tough to rely on him unless it's a fairly deep league.

    Thunder's Enes Kanter: Scores season-high 25 points Tuesday

    Kanter contributed 25 points (10-14 FG, 5-7 FT) and eight rebounds in 25 minutes during the Thunder's 110-104 victory versus the Nuggets on Tuesday. Through 10 games in the month of January, Kanter is managing 10.6 points, 5.5 rebounds, 0.6 blocks, 0.4 assists, and 0.4 steals in 20 minutes per contest. Splitting time at center with Steven Adams makes it difficult for either player to hold consistent value in fantasy, but on Tuesday the duo did share the floor together--albeit for a fairly short stretch of time--as Adams saw 30 minutes while Kanter earned 25.

    Thunder's Enes Kanter: Scores 18 points Tuesday

    Kanter contributed 18 points (8-10 FG, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, and one steal in 20 minutes during the Thunder's 101-96 win over the Timberwolves on Tuesday. Kanter has been unpredictable lately, but is still posting decent numbers in his limited minutes. Over the past five contests, the backup big man is averaging 10.0 points (52.8 FG, 0.0 3Pt, 80.0 FT), 5.6 rebounds, 0.6 assists, 0.4 steals, and 0.4 blocks in 19 minutes per game.

    Thunder's Enes Kanter: Turns in solid performance off bench Friday

    Kanter produced 15 points (6-10 FG, 3-3 FT), nine rebounds, an assist and a block over 23 minutes in Friday's 117-113 victory over the Lakers. The reserve center bounced back nicely from back-to-back single-digit scoring efforts, taking advantage of one of the leagues' more permeable frontcourt defenses. Kanter clearly has the ability to offer outstanding production from the center position, but continues to receive modest playing time while coming off the bench behind Steven Adams. While not particularly proficient on the defensive end, the 23-year-old can nevertheless deliver some solid rebounding numbers to go along with his above-average scoring. While his fantasy ceiling remains somewhat limited in his current role, he often serves as a sneaky, low-cost option in daily formats.

    Thunder's Enes Kanter: Hits 20-plus points for second straight game

    Kanter scored 23 points (9-12 FG, 5-6 FT) to go with eight rebounds, two steals, and one assist across 22 minutes in Tuesday's 131-123 win over the Bucks. After getting off to a slow start during December, Kanter is trending back up again, as he's popped for at least 14 points in five of his last six games, and has cleared the 20-point threshold in back-to-back outings. While the scoring surge hasn't resulted in much of an uptick in playing time, Kanter's averages of 16.2 points and 9.5 boards across 22.2 minutes during that six-game span are certainly strong enough to make him an attractive, relatively inexpensive DFS option most nights.

    Thunder's Enes Kanter: Scores 21 points Sunday

    Kanter contributed 21 points (7-8 FG, 7-8 FT), eight rebounds, one steal, and one block in 25 minutes during the Thunder's 122-112 win versus the Nuggets on Sunday. In the last five games, Kanter has managed 14.8 points on 62 percent from the field and 92 percent from the charity stripe to go along with 9.8 rebounds, 0.8 blocks, 0.6 assists, and 0.2 steals in 22 minutes per game. Considering that he shares time at center with starter Steven Adams, these are admirable numbers of late for Kanter. If he were earning more time, it'd be fairly reasonable to expect similar production going forward. However, since Kanter doesn't provide much in terms of defense, his value is based on solid returns in scoring, rebounding, and field-goal percentage.
