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.

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.

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.

Description: Jazz center Enes Kanter was seen in a walking boot due to an ankle injury and will not play Monday night.

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.

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.
