Enes Kanter was a focal point of the Knicks offense on Sunday against the Magic, scoring 18 on 8-of-13 shooting with 16 boards, two assists and a steal.
Both Tim Hardaway Jr. (left leg) and Kristaps Porzingis (ankle) did not play on Sunday so it’s amazing that the Knicks only lost 100-105. Kanter struggled on defense against Vucevic but held his own on offense by shooting over 60 percent. Kanter missed three straight games in the last ten days but has been productive in his two games since returning. Kanter has been a top-40 contributor this year in both 8 and 9-cat leagues. His playing time could go up as he’s only at 26.3 minutes a game on the year. Expect Kanter to keep up his play and don’t be scared to offer fair value for Kanter as he should maintain his value all year.
