Kanter (back) is leaning towards opting out of his $18.6 million player option for the 2018-19 season and becoming a free agent, Ian Begley of ESPN.com reports. Kanter says he wants to remain in New York longterm, which makes his likely decision to opt out of his deal rather curious, seeing as though his market value is expected to drop from the $18.6 million he would be owed in 2018-19 if he opts in. Nevertheless, it looks like Kanter is looking to get a long-term deal done with the Knicks, but the question remains if the rebuilding Knicks are interested in keeping the big man around or not.
Kanter (wrist, back) is out for Wednesday's season finale against the Cavaliers, Ian Begley of ESPN.com reports. As expected, Kanter will not take part in the Knicks' final game of the season. That said, his first year with the team was a success, as he averaged 14.1 points and a career-high 11.0 rebounds in 25.8 minutes per game.
Kanter (back, wrist) is doubtful for Wednesday's contest against the Cavaliers, Ian Begley of ESPN.com reports. Kanter is unlikely to take part in the team's final game of the season while continuing to nurse back and wrist ailments. Assuming he's played his last game this year, he'll have averaged 14.1 points, 11.0 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 25.8 minutes during his first season with New York.
Kanter (back) will remain out for Monday's matchup with the Cavaliers, Chris Iseman of The Record reports. Kanter was considered doubtful for Monday's contest, so it's not a surprise that he'll be missing a fifth straight game. In his place, look for Kyle O'Quinn to pick up another start, which should put him on double-double watch after nothing three straight. At this point, it seems unlikely Kanter will take the court again this season with just one game left on the schedule.
Kanter (back) is listed as doubtful for Monday's game against the Cavaliers, Marc Berman of the New York Post reports. Kanter has already missed the Knicks' previous four games with the back issue and seems unlikely to be back for either of the team's matchups with Cleveland this week before the regular season draws to a close. While Kanter has been out the last four contests, Kyle O'Quinn has filled in as the starting center and is averaging 12.5 points (on 51.3 percent shooting from the field), 14.3 rebounds, 3.3 blocks and 2.8 assists in 28.3 minutes per contest, making him a worthy activation across all settings.
