Enes Kanter (back, wrist) is doubtful for Tuesday's matchup with the Magic.
Kanter's dealing with some soreness in his back and wrist and it's kept him out of two games in the last few weeks. They have been spaced out pretty far, with him missing Saturday's game and then one on March 11th, but the fact that his back hasn't been 100 percent since then isn't great. He could be shut down if the Knicks don't want to risk anything, but that's assuming they try to re-sign him in free agency. Kanter has been a solid middle-round option this season, and Kyle O'Quinn becomes a must-start option in his absence. Luke Kornet and Isaiah Hicks should also see added playing time, with Kornet the preferred play.
