Kanter ended with 13 points (5-10 FG, 3-4 FT), 22 rebounds, three assists and two steals in 32 minutes during Monday's 125-122 loss to Oklahoma City. Kanter continues to play well for the Trail Blazers in the absence of Jusuf Nurkic (wrist). At this point in his career, we are fully aware of what Kanter brings to the table, and while there are certainly a couple of limitations, he has proven he is more than capable of being a top-100 player. Chances are he has been added in most competitive leagues but if for some reason he is still available, make sure it doesn't stay that way for long.
Kanter recorded eight points (4-5 FG), eight rebounds, three blocks and one assist across 24 minutes Sunday in the Trail Blazers' 116-113 win over the Knicks. Kanter should be a decent source of both points and rebounds while he continues to fill a starting role for the next several weeks in place of Jusuf Nurkic (wrist), but the block production was a nice bonus. Over the three games since Nurkic exited the lineup, Kanter is averaging 9.7 points, 10.3 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 2.7 blocks in 26.7 minutes.
Kanter and the Trail Blazers will not play Friday against the Grizzlies due to postponement, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Memphis does not have the required eight available players for the matchup due to contact tracing. The Blazers' next chance to play arrives Sunday against the Knicks.
Kanter and the Trail Blazers will not play Wednesday against the Grizzlies, as the game has been postponed, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Due to contract tracing measures, Wednesday's game won't be played. The two teams are scheduled to play again Friday.
Kanter scored nine points (4-8 FG, 1-1 FT) while adding eight rebounds and five assists in 27 minutes during Monday's 125-104 loss to the Spurs. Making his second straight start in place of Jusuf Nurkic (wrist), Kanter fell short of another double-double but did salvage some fantasy value with his surprising distribution efforts, as he came into the game with only nine assists in 13 games. Nurkic will be out for a couple months, and Harry Giles is little threat to Kanter's playing time, but even with a bigger role the 28-year-old may not provide consistent production.
