Celtics' Enes Kanter: Provides boost in Game 5 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kanter muscled his way to eight points (4-7 FG), four rebounds and two assists over 10 minutes of run in Friday's 121-108 Eastern Conference finals Game 5 win.

Kanter provided a similar spark in Game 3, yet for reasons unknown did not receive any playing time in Game 4. Coach Brad Stevens avoided that mistake Friday night, as he turned to Kanter when Boston was really struggling during the first half. He quickly snagged some rebounds and a few quick, powerful post-up buckets down low. Kanter and Jaylen Brown kept the C's in the game during the first half and then the five starters exploded for a 41-point third quarter. In what's been a rugged series, Kanter's inside production should again get some run in Sunday's Game 6.

Celtics' Enes Kanter: Plays 11 minutes in Game 2 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kanter tallied nine points (4-4 FG, 1-1 FT) and six rebounds in 11 minutes during Thursday's 106-101 loss to Miami.

After barely seeing the court in the playoffs, Kanter was thrown into the action Thursday, and he responded by connecting on all four of his shot attempts. The offensive ability is certainly there for Kanter; however, he was torched on the defensive end, letting Bam Adebayo get to the basket with ease. Based on what we saw from Kanter in this one, his playing time moving forward is far from guaranteed.

Celtics' Enes Kanter: Starting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kanter is starting Thursday's game against the Wizards, Gary Washburn of The Boston Globe reports.

With coach Brad Stevens resting most of his key players, Kanter will draw the start for the seeding finale. In six previous starts this season, he has averaged 12.7 points, 9.3 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 25.8 minutes.

Celtics' Enes Kanter: Wakes up with 11 in 15 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kanter produced 11 points (4-9 FG, 1-1 FT), eight rebounds, an assist and a blocked shot across 15 minutes in Tuesday's 122-107 win over the Grizzlies.

Although Daniel Theis started at center, Kanter and Robert Willams III rotated in the role and outplayed him. Kanter did quick work in only 11 minutes with a team-high eight rebounds. Kanter is worth a look in games where the Celtics are at a significant height disadvantage.

Celtics' Enes Kanter: Grabs eight boards in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kanter produced 11 points (4-7 FG, 3-6 FT), eight rebounds, two assists and a block in Sunday's 128-124 win over the Trail Blazers.

Kanter saw a few more minutes Sunday relative to the 17.4 minutes per game he has averaged through the season. The big fella's size was needed versus a Portland lineup filled with bigs Jusuf Nurkic, Zach Collins and Hassan Whiteside. Kanter's eight boards tied with Gordon Hayward for the team lead. This was a nice bounce-back game for the reserve center, as Kanter posted only two points and three boards Friday versus Milwaukee. Boston now faces the Heat on Tuesday in a game with big seeding implications.

Celtics' Enes Kanter: Will rest Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kanter is resting Tuesday against the Rockets, Tom Westerholm of The Springfield Republican reports.

Kanter will get the day off prior to Friday's opener against the Bucks. Coach Brad Stevens is also resting Marcus Smart, Gordon Hayward, Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, Kemba Walker and Daniel Theis.

Celtics' Enes Kanter: Posts double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kanter went for 11 points (5-9 FG, 1-2 FT) and 10 rebounds in 13 minutes during Friday's 98-84 scrimmage loss to the Thunder.

Kanter came off the bench but produced a better line than starting center Daniel Theis, who finished with eight points, three rebounds and three assists in 16 minutes of action. Kanter might remain in a bench role moving forward, but he should remain a decent scoring alternative for Boston.

Celtics' Enes Kanter: Records double-double in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kanter amassed 10 points (3-6 FG, 4-4 FT), 11 rebounds and one steal in 14 minutes in Wednesday's 112-106 win over the Cavaliers.

With Kemba Walker (knee), Gordon Hayward (knee) and Jaylen Brown (hamstring) all sidelined for the Celtics, Kanter notched his first double-double in eight games. His playing time didn't see a huge jump, but the center made the most of the opportunities presented to him with Boston down three of their top four scorers. His minutes are going to be unreliable with Robert Williams and Daniel Theis both currently heathy for this front court, but if the Celtics continue to be without multiple starters Friday night against the Jazz, Kanter could produce another solid scoring effort off the bench.

Celtics' Enes Kanter: Poor production continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kanter finished with just four points (1-3 FG, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, two assists and one steal in 17 minutes during Tuesday's 118-106 victory over the Trail Blazers.

Kanter has basically been a fantasy afterthought of late, ranking outside the top-300 over the past two weeks. Kanter can certainly contribute when given sufficient playing time; however, at this stage, his defense is so bad that the Celtics are finding it difficult to have him on the floor. If Daniel Theis were to suffer an injury, perhaps Kanter could be considered in 12-team leagues but as of right now, he can be safely left on the waiver wire.

Celtics' Enes Kanter: Offers little in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kanter failed to score (0-2 FG), adding just three rebounds in eight minutes during Tuesday's 116-105 loss to the Rockets.

Kanter barely saw the floor Tuesday, succumbing to the small-ball style of the Rockets. His inability to switch out on defense often limits Kanter's impact and the Rockets took full advantage. As long as Daniel Theis is healthy, Kanter seems destined to play no more than 20 minutes on any given night, leaving him a deeper-league asset only.

Celtics' Enes Kanter: Returns to bench role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kanter is not in the starting lineup Sunday against Oklahoma City.

The 27-year-old started the last two games and averaged 27.0 minutes in the absence of Daniel Theis (ankle), but Theis makes his return to the court Sunday. Kanter should return to his more modest role off the bench, when he's averaging 17.6 minutes per contest.

Celtics' Enes Kanter: Big double-double in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kanter scored 16 points (5-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 6-7 FT) while adding 15 rebounds and a block in 28 minutes during Friday's 112-107 win over the Hawks.

With Daniel Theis nursing an ankle injury, Kanter had a big role for Boston against a depleted Atlanta frontcourt that's still waiting for trade deadline acquisition Clint Capela to join the roster. Kanter's 28 minutes played were a season high, leading to his eighth double-double of the year. Once Theis is healthy again though, expect Kanter's minutes to dwindle back into the teens on most nights.

Celtics' Enes Kanter: Quiet in start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kanter collected seven points (3-5 FG, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds, two assists, one block and one steal in 25 minutes in Wednesday's 116-100 win versus the Magic.

Kanter received the spot start for the injured Daniel Theis (knee) and was mostly ineffective in the tough matchup versus the Magic. However, this was only the center's second game back after missing five straight due to a shoulder injury and it was encouraging to see him log 25 minutes. If Theis remains out for Friday's tilt against the Hawks, Kanter should produce a better outing in the friendly matchup.

Celtics' Enes Kanter: Joins starting five
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kanter is starting at center Wednesday against the Magic.

Kanter will draw the start Monday in place of the injured Daniel Theis (ankle). In four previous starts this season, the big man is averaging 13.3 points, 8.3 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 25.3 minutes.

Celtics' Enes Kanter: Officially cleared
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kanter (hip) was removed from the injury report ahead of Wednesday's game against Orlando.

Kanter made his return to action Monday in Atlanta after a five-game absence, but he remained on the initial injury report ahead of Wednesday's game. Now officially cleared, Kanter could be in line to start against Orlando with Daniel Theis sidelined.

Celtics' Enes Kanter: Likely to play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kanter (hip) is probable for Wednesday's matchup against Orlando, Jared Weiss of The Athletic reports.

Kanter returned from a hip injury in Monday's win over the Hawks, where he logged 16 minutes of action and managed a near double-double with eight points and nine boards. Kanter's appearance on the injury report is likely just a precaution taken by the Celtics, as the center is likely to play barring any major setbacks.

Celtics' Enes Kanter: Available Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kanter (hip) has been upgraded to available for Monday's game against the Hawks, Ben Rohrbach of Yahoo Sports reports. According to Adam Himmelsbach of The Boston Globe, coach Brad Stevens said the big man "will be pretty limited" in his first game back.

Kanter will return from a five-game absence due to a right hip bruise. So far this season, the veteran center has averaged 9.5 points, 8.2 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 18.5 minutes per game while largely playing a reserve rotational role for the Celtics.

February 2, 2020 04:44 PM
Celtics' Enes Kanter: Questionable Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kanter (hip) is considered questionable for Monday's game against Atlanta.

Kanter hasn't played since Jan. 22 as he continues to nurse a hip injury, but there's hope that he'll be able to make his return Monday night. Prior to the injury, Kanter had averaged 10.5 points, 8.5 rebounds and 1.0 assist over his last 10 games.

Celtics' Enes Kanter: Ruled out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kanter (hip) won't play in Saturday's game against Philadelphia, Jared Weiss of The Athletic reports.

Kanter's absence will extend to a fifth consecutive contest as the veteran center continues to battle a right hip bruise. Daniel Theis will continue to see the majority of the minutes at center with Vincent Poirier presumably continuing to see extended run off the bench. Tacko Fall, newly called up from the G League, could see some action in reserve as well.

Celtics' Enes Kanter: Questionable Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kanter (hip) is considered questionable for Saturday's game versus Philadelphia, Jared Weiss of The Athletic reports.

The veteran center has missed the last four games due to the right hip bruise, but he may be able to retake the court Saturday. Grant Williams has seen increased run during his absence, and he'll likely do so again against the 76ers if Kanter cannot suit up.
