by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/28/2015) Jazz center Enes Kanter scored a team-high 21 points on 8 of 16 shooting while hauling in 11 rebounds in his team's 94-89 loss to the Clippers Wednesday.

It's the fourth 20-point performance and third double-double in Kanter's last five games despite averaging just 14.1 points and 7.5 rebounds heading into Wednesday's action. The center also managed to record one assist and one block in 36 minutes of action. He'll square off with the Warriors Friday.


Jazz C Enes Canter doubles up vs. Bucks Thursday

(1/22/2015) Jazz center Enes Kanter scored 23 points on 8 of 15 shooting while racking up 16 rebounds in his team's 101-99 win over the Bucks Thursday.

The Jazz chose to start two centers against a Bucks team with small forward Ersan Ilyasova at the power-forward position, and the strategy paid off early, with Utah jumping out to a 26-16 lead by the end of the first quarter. Kanter also kicked in two steals and one block in 36 minutes while delivering his second straight double-double. He'll square off with the Nets Saturday.

Jazz to keep center Enes Kanter in starting role


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(1/21/2015) Jazz coach Quin Snyder was emphatic starting center Enes Kanter will remain in his role, reports the Salt Lake Tribune.

With Rudy Gobert playing well while Kanter was sidelined, Snyder has repeatedly been asked about the starting role and he said nothing will change.

"We have a starting lineup. Enes has been the starter. Rudy comes off the bench," Snyder said. "That's not something I believe in toying with."

Snyder added that he's been pleased with Kanter's play and his role will not be diminished

"Enes has been terrific," he said. "He's a big part of what we do and we need him to play well."


Enes Kanter replacing Rudy Gobert in Jazz starting lineup


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/13/2015) Jazz coach Quinn Synder said center Enes Kanter is returning to the starting lineup Tuesday against the Warriors and center Rudy Gobert will return to a reserve role. Synder said the reason for the change is because players don't lose starting jobs because of injury, according to the Salt Lake Tribune.

Kanter missed four games due to an ankle injury before returning to action Saturday against the Rockets. He had 16 points and six rebounds in 21 minutes. While he was able to make his return, Kanter said his ankle won't be 100 percent for a long time, reports the Deseret News.

"I can't just wait for it to be 100 percent," Kanter said. "I'm just going to go out there and play."
