Kanter has undergone successful arthroscopic surgery on his left knee and is expected to miss 4-6 weeks before beginning regular offseason activites.

There was no indication of a knee issue for Kanter during the season, but the surgery is likely just a cleanup procedure. Assuming no setbacks occur, he should be ready for the start of training camp.

Kanter scored 25 points (11-17 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-3 FT) with 15 rebounds, two assists and a block in 34 minutes during Wednesday's win over the Timberwolves.

The Thunder just missed the playoffs, but Kanter looks like he will be a very solid complementary piece to the team's dynamic duo of Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant next season.

Kanter (neck) had 21 points (9-19 FG), 17 rebounds and one block in 38 minutes.

Kanter (neck) is starting Sunday's game against the Rockets.

There was never any indication of Kanter's neck injury being serious, as he finished out Friday's loss to the Grizzlies with 24 points and 17 rebounds. X-rays came back negative, so the Turkish big man figures to once again log minutes well into the 30s.

Kanter put up 24 points and 17 rebounds in Friday's loss to the Grizzlies, but he underwent X-rays on his neck following the game, Darnell Mayberry of The Oklahoman reports.

The X-rays came back negative, and Kanter said he was fine, so at first glance it does not appear he is dealing with anything major. Expect an update on Kanter's status prior to the Thunder's next game Sunday against the Rockets.

Kanter scored 30 points (9-13 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 11-12 FT) with 16 rebounds, one assist and one block in 38 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Mavericks.

Kanter is ballin' right now averaging 20 points on 58 percent from the field and 88 percent from the free throw line with 12.4 rebounds over his last five games. The lack of defensive stats limit him from being an elite player, but he should be owned in all leagues nevertheless.

Kanter (ankle) returned to the starting lineup scoring 27 points (12-20 FG, 3-3FT) along with 12 rebounds.

Kanter's ankle was totally fine tonight, as he posted a strong game in his return. Kanter has recorded a double-double in his last five games played, averaging 21.8 points and 13.6 rebounds. It is nice to see that Kanter has been so effective after Steven Adams returned to the starting lineup.

Kanter (ankle) will return and start Sunday against the Heat, Anthony Slater of The Oklahoman reports.

Kanter suffered the ankle injury Wednesday, but has shown enough in practice Saturday and Sunday to earn the start. Because of some other injuries, it would not be a surprise to see Kanter player his usual 30 minutes Sunday if he is truly fully healed.

Kanter (ankle) practiced Saturday and there's a chance that he could take the floor Sunday against Miami, NBA.com's Randy Renner reports.

Renner reported that Kanter "moved around pretty good" during Saturday's practice, opening the possibility that he could return Sunday. Kanter missed Friday's game with a sprained ankle and bruised forearm. The fact that he practiced Saturday doesn't ensure that he'll be able to go against the Heat, so consider him a game-time decision until the Thunder release further information.

Kanter (ankle) is currently listed without a timetable for a return to the court, The Oklahoman reports.

Kanter should be considered out until the Thunder say otherwise. Until he returns to the court, it appears that Mitch McGary will be benefiting from added playing time as a starter.
