Jazz to keep center Enes Kanter in starting role


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

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."

With Rudy Gobert emerging as a productive option while starting in Kanter’s place, it remains to be seen who Quin Snyder will insert in the starting lineup. Kanter is averaging 13.9 points and 7.3 rebounds in 33 appearances this season.

Utah is an 11 1/2-point underdog at Houston.

Gobert has averaged 9.6 points, 9.4 rebounds and 4.0 blocks in five starts this season. The second-year center is averaging 6.3 points, 6.7 boards and 2.0 block through his first 36 games.
