Kanter supplied 21 points (8-16 FG, 5-5 FT), 19 rebounds, three assists and one block across 38 minutes Sunday in the Knicks' 131-117 loss to the Magic. After playing no more than 26 minutes in any of the previous four games, Kanter benefited from a huge spike with starting center Mitchell Robinson battling foul trouble during nine unproductive minutes on the floor. Whenever Kanter gets extended run, he's always a threat to challenge for a 20-20 performance, but coach David Fizdale's rotations remain far too volatile to bank on Kanter regularly exceeding 30 minutes most nights, much less pushing for 40. Kanter will continue to be a high-variance producer until Fizdale settles into a more predictable pattern with how he divvies up playing time.
Kanter scored 19 points (8-11 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-3 FT), grabbed five rebounds, and dished one assist in 22 minutes Wednesday as the Knicks fell to the Thunder. Wednesday marked the fourth instance in 15 games where Kanter registered single-digit rebounds and he has scored single-digit points in just three contests. He has established himself as a double-double threat and has proven himself to be quite durable over the course of his eight-year career. He has been as consistent as it gets for both the Knicks and fantasy owners so far this season, and there is no reason to expect that will change anytime soon.
Kanter finished with 16 points (7-15 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 15 rebounds, and one assist in 26 minutes during Sunday's 115-89 loss to the Magic. This game was ugly from the get-go but Kanter was still able to come through with yet another double-double. His move to the bench has certainly not slowed the double-double production and his value remains very similar to his starting unit numbers. He offers very little outside of points and rebounds but remains worth owning in all leagues for his consistency.
Kanter scored 15 points (5-14 FG, 5-5 FT) while adding 15 rebounds and two assists in 20 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 128-112 loss to the Raptors. Four different Knicks bench players scored in double digits, led by Kanter's 15, which is the only reason the game was even vaguely close. It's the big man's fourth straight double-double and ninth of the season, and he looks to have fully adjusted to the move to the second unit behind rookie Mitchell Robinson.
Kanter finished with 23 points (8-14 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 7-8 FT), 24 rebounds, seven assists, and one steal in 40 minutes during Monday's 116-115 loss to the Bulls. Kanter came off the bench again Monday but played a whopping 40 minutes in the double-overtime thriller. Mitchell Robinson was in early foul trouble leaving Kanter to pick up the majority of the center minutes. In his playing time, Kanter produced a huge double-double and hopefully, this will be a sign of things to come. After shifting to the bench, Kanter has seen his numbers decline so maybe this will get things going again.
