Enes Kanter was neither here nor there in his return to Utah on Friday, shooting 5-of-13 and finishing with 12 points, nine rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block in 26 minutes.
It would’ve been nice to see Kanter get more run against a big Jazz front line but he was still moderately productive in decent playing time. He’s almost certainly going to come down from his early-middle round value as the season wears on though there’s an outside chance that some trades leave more minutes on his plate. You can sell high on Kanter if you want but he’s getting enough playing time (aside from some short dips) to sustain solid top-80 value this season.
