|2015 Regular Season|
Thunder coach Scott Brooks said it not certain how long Kanter will be out. Brooks believed the injury occurred in the second half of Thursday night's 117-113 overtime loss in Phoenix. The 6-foot-11 Kanter is averaging 14 points and 7.9 rebounds. He was acquired along with Steve Novak from the Utah Jazz in a trade at the deadline last week.
Kanter, the third overall pick of the 2011 draft, is averaging career highs of 13.8 points and 7.8 rebounds.
Snyder said the two spoke before the team held its first practice after the All-Star break Wednesday, and they're ''in a good place.'' Kanter told the Salt Lake Tribune he would like to be traded before Thursday's deadline. He has been in a frontcourt rotation with Rudy Gobert, Derrick Favors and Trevor Booker. Kanter is averaging 13.8 points, 7.8 rebounds and 27.1 minutes this season.
Kanter is averaging 16.9 points and 10.1 rebounds over his last eight games.
Kanter is averaging 19.6 points and 10.8 rebounds over his last five games.
Kanter is averaging 19.3 points and 10.8 rebounds over his last four games. He has played 31-plus minutes three times in that span, so he should be a fixture in your lineup until his usage goes down.
That's two huge games in a row for Kanter, who put up 24 and 17 against Cleveland the night before. He remains a solid - but hardly elite - fantasy option.
There's no time table for his return.
The fourth-year center has posted some impressive numbers lately. Kanter also grabbed seven rebounds against the Pelicans.
Kanter is averaging 17.0 points in six games this month.
