Description: Thunder center Enes Kanter posted his second straight double-double with his new team.
Insight: Kanter has been proving us wrong at The Sports Network who said he was a loser of the trade deadline. He had 20 points and 12 rebounds on Sunday versus the Nuggets. It will be interesting to see if coach Scott Brooks sticks with Kanter or moves back to Steven Adams when Adams returns from his injury.
 
2/21/2015 10:13:00 PM
Description: Thunder center Enes Kanter posted a double-double during his first game with the team.
Insight: Kanter started at center and played 32 minutes, going 4-of-9 from the field and 2-of-6 from the line for 10 points and 13 boards. He will have a good chance for numbers like Saturday, on a nightly basis.
 
2/21/2015 1:15:00 PM
Description: Center Enes Kanter is expected to play and start Saturday night for his new team - the Thunder.
Insight: Kanter averaged 13.8 ppg, 7.8 rpg in Utah and should be able to match that for the Thunder. He has a big chance to show his offensive game on Saturday with Kevin Durant out of the lineup. He and Serge Ibaka should snare most of the rebounds too.
 
2/19/2015 4:23:00 PM
Description: Center Enes Kanter will leave the slow-paced Utah Jazz and join the up tempo Thunder.
Insight: Kanter should start in the middle and could keep the job even after Steven Adams returns. He averaged 13.8 ppg, 7.8 rpg in Utah and should be able to match that for the Thunder.

Insight: After recording 24 points and 17 rebounds on Wednesday, Kanter went for 23 points and 16 boards on Thursday against the Bucks. He also had two steals, one block, and two turnovers. Kanter is a fine option at center.

1/21/2015 2:20:00 PM
Description: Jazz center Enes Kanter will remain in the starting lineup according to the Salt Lake Tribune.
Insight: Rudy Gobert has played very well lately while Kanter missed some time, but coach Quin Snyder made it clear that Kanter will start. Gobert, however, appears poised to steal some playing time from Kanter, so owners will want to keep a close eye on this situation.
 
1/13/2015 1:40:00 PM
Description: Jazz center Enes Kanter (14.0 ppg, 7.2 rpg) will get the start Tuesday against Golden State.
Insight: Rudy Gobert has played well in his absence, but Kanter will get his starting spot back. He posted 16 points and six rebounds in 21 minutes in his first action since injuring his ankle and should see more time as the starter.
 
1/7/2015 1:08:00 PM
Description: Jazz center Enes Kanter will not play on Wednesday versus the Bulls.
Insight: This will be the third straight game Kanter will miss. Rudy Gobert will replace him in the lineup, and Gobert should see some serious consideration from owners on Wednesday. There is even a possibility that Gobert takes the starting role from Kanter in the long-run.
 
1/5/2015 4:00:00 PM
Description: Jazz center Enes Kanter was seen in a walking boot due to an ankle injury and will not play Monday night.
Insight: Kanter's absence (13.9 ppg, 7.3 rpg) opens the door for Rudy Gobert. Gobert had 13 points, 11 rebounds and six blocks as his replacement on Saturday,
 
12/16/2014 10:33:00 PM

10/16/2014 4:48:00 PM
Description: Jazz center Enes Kanter will look to build off a solid 2013-14 campaign.
Insight: He averaged a career-high 12.3 points per game last season, along with 7.5 rebounds per game. Playing at the center position, owners would like to see more production in the rebounding department, along with his ability to block shots (0.5 BPG last season). Kanter should be shooting around 50 percent from the field, and will not kill you from the free throw line (73% last season), and as a result owners should target him towards the end of their drafts.
 
4/16/2014 7:59:00 PM
Description: Quad tendinitis will prevent Jazz center Enes Kanter from suiting up Wednesday against Minnesota. SOURCE: David Locke, Jazz radio play-by-play
Insight: It's only Kanter's second absence of the year. Erik Murphy (0.3 ppg, 0.3 rpg) is active and could wind up starting in Kanter's place.
 
4/9/2014 9:37:00 AM
Description: Jazz center Enes Kanter collected 15 points and 19 rebounds Tuesday in a loss to Dallas.
Insight: That's Kanter's highest rebounding total of the season. While many teams will be resting their starters down the stretch, Utah's rotation shouldn't see any sweeping changes over the final four games of the season. Make sure to have Kanter (12.1 ppg, 7.3 rpg) in your starting lineup Friday against Portland.

Description: Jazz PF/C Enes Kanter has averaged 37 minutes per game the last two games and put up double-doubles in both.
Insight: Utah has started Marvin Williams at power forward most of the season, but Kanter has started the last two.
