The Jazz have played the matchup game against some teams to get a better defensive unit on the court, and that's left Kanter on the outside looking in at times this season. While he has the potential to be a double-double threat who can sink a three-pointer and get an occasional block, Kanter is getting looked over against teams that use legit stretch power forwards like the Pelicans with Ryan Anderson. Keep that in mind if considering Kanter for a daily games lineup.

Kanter was limited to just 12 minutes on the court Friday as coach Quin Snyder didn't like the big man's matchup with the small lineup that the Knicks put out on the court, the Deseret News reports. "Tonight was just one of those matchup nights at that position. That's a tough position in the NBA," said Snyder of Kanter at power forward.
Kanter fell out of favor last season with former coach Ty Corbin as he ultimately was moved to a role off the bench. The regime change with Snyder put Kanter back into the starting five this season although a similar situation is looming in Utah as Kanter played under 20 minutes for the second time this year without being in foul trouble. For the time being Kanter remains as a starter in Utah, but four different players came off the bench to play more minutes than the former third overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft on Friday.
