Enes Kanter received 27 minutes of playing time on Wednesday and produced 20 points (7-of-11 from the field, 6-for-6 from the charity stripe), nine rebounds and a block.
Kanter rebounded nicely from a nine-minute outing on Monday, and his fantasy value will really be determined by how much run he gets. He’s good for scoring, boards and strong field goal percentages with the occasional block but would plummet into late-round territory if he was stuck with minutes in the high teens. The Knicks are fully expected to move one of their reserve centers, which could help Kanter out in the second half. He’s not the safest play in the world but there isn’t too much concern yet.
