Anthony Slater

Enes Kanter post up and a bucket on the first possession. I'd expect a lot of low-block opportunities for Kanter tonight.

Royce Young

Enes Kanter is back in the starting five tonight. Missed the Portland game with a right thigh contusion.

Anthony Slater

Enes Kanter is in the Thunder's starting lineup tonight, back from one-game absence.

Mike Trudell

Enes Kanter is indeed playing today, after missing 1 game, joining Augustin, Roberson, Singler and Ibaka in an unfamiliar OKC line up.

Darnell Mayberry

Enes Kanter is on the court working out, testing out his thigh. Looks fine to me. Just THREW down a dunk. Status will be decided soon.

Darnell Mayberry

Enes Kanter is on the court working out, testing out his thigh. Looks fine to me. Just through down a dunk. Status will be decided soon.

Anthony Slater

Enes Kanter is testing out his thigh in pregame. Status for today vs Lakers still unknown. Game-time decision.

Mike Trudell

We know Durant/Westbrook (plus Steven Adams) are out, but Enes Kanter is a game-time decision. He's going through warm ups now, looks OK.

Anthony Slater

Good problem to have, but gonna be tough to keep Mitch McGary off the court when Adams/Kanter come back. Ton of young frontcourt depth.

Jody Genessy

Looks like Grant Jerrett will check in after this Jazz timeout. He's yet to play since being traded to Utah in the Enes Kanter swap.

Kerry Eggers

With Adams, Kanter and Durant out, #Blazers should hammer Thunder on boards tonight

Tony Jones

I Enes Kanter playing tonight? He's not in the starting lineup

Kerry Eggers

Latest Thunder player to go down is C Enes Kanter, out with thigh contusion. Also missing F Kevin Durant, C Steven Adams, F Steve Novak

Erik Gundersen

Enes Kanter is out tonight for OKC per Scott Brooks.

Darnell Mayberry

Scott Brooks says he doesn't know how long Kanter will be out. Nick Collison will start in place of Kanter.

Mike Richman

Enes Kanter out tonight with a right thigh contusion per Scott Brooks.

Darnell Mayberry

Enes Kanter is out tonight with a right thigh contusion.

Third observation is a film room look at Enes Kanter's defense, which was glaringly bad last night - bit.ly/1wtY7iG

Royce Young

Thunder lose to the Suns 117-113 in overtime. Westbrook 39 (12-38 shooting), 14 rebounds, 11 assists, Kanter 18, Waiters 16, Ibaka 13.

Adi Joseph

Reggie just suggested putting Kanter on the court for defense, then admitted that he knows Kanter is bad on defense, then stuck with it.

Royce Young

The way Kanter has been worked in the pick-and-roll tonight, methinks Steven Adams might be he preferred closing center.

Anthony Slater

Kanter is great offensively, but has always struggled as a defender. Example: vine.co/v/O2riOwYqD2O

Royce Young

Suns lead 86-84 after three. Westbrook 20 (5-22 shooting), six rebounds and nine assists, Kanter 18, Waiters 13.

Royce Young

Augustin, Waiters and Kanter: 31 points on 11-13 shooting. Westbrook, Ibaka and Singler: 13 points on 4-23 shooting.

Paul Coro

PHX 53, OKC 48 @ half. PHX: 50 FG%, 3-9 FT; OKC: 39 FG%, 12-13 FT; Keef: 16p; Kanter: 12p; Augustin: 10p; Westbrook: 2-14 FG #SunsVsThunder

Anthony Slater

Reason OKC is in it -Enes Kanter: 12 pts, 3 rebs -Dion Waiters: 9 pts, 4/4 FG -D.J. Augustin: 10 pts, 3 asts, 4/5 FG

Royce Young

Suns lead the Thunder 53-48 at half. Kanter 12, Augustin 10, Westbrook 8 (2-14 shooting), 5 rebounds and 5 assists, Waiters 9, Ibaka 5.

Anthony Slater

Thunder bench has stabilized things a bit. Non-Kanter starters a combined 0-of-15 shooting.

Darnell Mayberry

Nothing else is working at the moment, and so OKC starts to dump it into Kanter for higher-percentage looks. He's already gotten four FTAs.

Darnell Mayberry

As much as folk bag on it these days, we're seeing an example of when and how a low-post scoring threat (Kanter) helps the Thunder immensely

Aaron Falk

Last Jazz-Nuggets meeting: Denver beat Utah 103-101 on Dec. 1 Enes Kanter had 17p/15r Alec Burks had 22p/8r Arron Afflalo had 14p/1ejection
