Player Outlook

Enes Kanter will be entering his third full season with the Thunder with about the exact same role he's had all along: offensive-minded backup. Despite the trading away of Domantas Sabonis, who started 66 games last season ahead of Kanter, the newly-acquired Patrick Patterson is in line to essentially take the role of Sabonis, keeping Kanter refined to a limited role off the bench. The 25-year-old still managed to hold value despite the bench role, though, most notably averaging 14.3 points on 54.5 percent shooting from the field with 6.7 rebounds on just 21.3 minutes per game, making him one of the most efficient scorers in the league and valuable across almost every format. It would be hard to imagine him remaining as efficient for another straight year, but even a slight digression in scoring efficiency doesn't pose a threat to his wide-spread value.

Player News
  • Kanter contributed 20 points (9-15 FG, 2-2 FT), 16 rebounds, and four assists in 31 minutes during Monday's 104-101 loss to the Cavaliers. Kanter finished with season highs in scoring and assists while posting his sixth double-double of the campaign. He continues to be a legitimate factor in the Knicks' frontcourt, as Kristaps Porzingis and Kanter are proving to complement each other well.

  • Kanter accumulated 17 points (8-13 FG, 1-1 FFT), 13 rebounds, one assist and one steal in 26 minutes during Saturday's 118-91 victory over the Kings. Kanter played well again Saturday, en-route to his fifth double-double of the season. He has been a good fit for the Knicks this season, playing an integral part in their surprising early season form. While he won't fill the box-score, he will provide consistent points and rebounds with excellent percentages from both the field and the free-throw line.

  • Knicks' Enes Kanter: Huge double-double Friday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Kanter collected 16 points (7-12 FG, 2-2 FT), 15 rebounds, three assists and one block across 32 minutes during Saturday's 120-107 victory over the Suns. Kanter recorded his fourth double-double of the team's first eight games Friday. That's not too surprising, however, as he managed to rack up 18 double-doubles in 72 games last season while seeing just 21.3 minutes per game. Fantasy owners who may have been worried his new destination would hinder his production seemingly have little to be concerned about at this point.

  • Kanter recorded 18 points (6-12 FG, 6-8 FT), 12 rebounds, a steal and a blocked shot across 33 minutes in Sunday's 114-95 win over the Cavaliers. As expected it appears Kanter is slowly separating himself from the rest of the pack as NewYork's starting center. His late arrival to the team shook things up as it was expected hat Willy Hernenagomez and Kyle O'Quinn would share these duties, but O'Quinn only played 12 minutes and Hernangomez was a healthy scratch. Kanter should stay put as the starter even when Joakim Noah (suspension) returns. Kanter and the Knicks head home for a back-to-back Monday against the Nuggets.

  • Kanter posted 12 points (6-8 FG), six rebounds, two blocks and an assist over 16 minutes in Friday's 107-86 win over the Nets. Kanter didn't really do anything wrong, but the 5 sort of devolved into a three-way time-share among Kanter, Kyle O' Quinn and Willy Herbabgomez. It could have just been a gameflow issue, but O'Quinn clearly outrebounded Kanter and was on the court a bit longer. In the big picture this win helps the Knicks out in cementing the claim that they aren't the worst team in the NBA right now, but internally there's a lot of lineup tinkering going on all over the court. Until things settle down into a more reliable rhythm, Porzingis might be the only fantasy option you can rely on n the short term.
