Kanter scored 14 points (7-10 FG) to go with 11 rebounds across 27 minutes in Tuesday's 113-109 overtime win against the Lakers.

EDGE Analysis

While Kristaps Porzingis grabs all of the offensive headlines, Kanter has been dominating the boards as of late. The New York center is averaging 10.7 rebounds over his last seven games since he returned to the lineup from a back injury. Of those seven games, Kanter has recorded a double-double in five of them. While he is averaging a steady 13.4 points, Kanter's 10.3 rebounds per game are more than sufficient moving forward.

Kanter compiled eight points (4-9 FG) five rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 18 minutes Sunday in New York's win over Atlanta.

EDGE Analysis

Kanter is working well in tandem with Knicks big man Kristaps Porzingis. His efficiency and willingness to do the dirty work in the paint make him a valuable piece for the Knicks. As a team, they aren't flush with scoring options. As a result, Kanter's touches won't be at risk for the remainder of the season.Kanter is averaging a double-double so far in the 2017-18 campaign, and he will continue to be valuable for his fantasy owners.

Kanter is dealing with some discomfort in his hip, but will still play in Sunday's game against the Hawks, Ian Begley of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kanter reportedly took a shot to the hip in Saturday's game against Chicago, which is now giving him some lingering pain. However, it's not serious enough where it will keep Kanter out of action, so he should be in the starting lineup as usual. That said, there's certainly a chance coach Jeff Hornacek monitors his minutes a bit, so Kanter could be a bit of a risky play for Sunday's DFS slate.

Kanter contributed 22 points (7-9 FG, 8-9 FT), 14 rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 25 minutes during Wednesday's 115-86 win over the Heat.

EDGE Analysis

Kanter returned to the lineup with a bang, posting a season high in scoring while notching his eighth double-double in 18 appearances. He has been superb through the first two months, and he'll have time to rest his back with the team off until Sunday.

Kanter (back) will participate in Wednesday's matchup against the Heat, Al Iannazzone of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kanter missed the team's most recent three games while nursing back spasms, but went through practice Tuesday and seemingly got through morning shootaround with no issues. As a result, he'll probably be re-inserted back into the Knicks' starting five and will go up against a Heat squad devoid of Hassan Whiteside (knee). With Kanter's return, Kyle O'Quinn and Willy Hernangomez will likely see their roles revert back to normal.

Kanter (back) is probable for Wednesday's matchup against the Heat after going through practice Tuesday, Al Iannazzone of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

This is certainly good news all-around for the Knicks, as Kanter has missed the team's past three contests while nursing back spasms. In his five most recent appearances, he's averaging 13.6 points and 9.2 rebounds per contest. More word on his availability should emerge following the team's Wednesday morning shootaround.

Kanter (back) participated in practice Tuesday, Ian Begley of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kanter hasn't been able to play in the Knicks' last three games due to back spasms. Since the 25-year-old's hopes are high for playing Wednesday against the Heat, expect Kyle O'Quinn to move back to the bench if Kanter is good to go.

Kanter (back) will practice Tuesday in hopes of playing Wednesday against Miami, Ian Begley of ESPN New York reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kanter has missed the last three games while battling back spasms, but the big man will make every effort to return to action Wednesday as the Knicks look to end a three-game skid. Kyle O'Quinn has been starting in Kanter's place, and he'd likely move back to the bench in the event that Kanter is cleared.

Kanter (back) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Trail Blazers.

EDGE Analysis

Kanter has missed the last two games with back spasms and despite saying he was going to play through the pain Monday, the Knicks' medical staff likely advised him against it. He'll miss a third straight game and should be considered questionable heading into Wednesday's matchup against the Heat. Kyle O'Quinn should pick up yet another start after going off for 20 points, 15 rebounds, four assists, one steal and two blocks across 26 minutes Saturday against the Rockets.

Kanter (back) is considered questionable for Monday's game against Houston.

EDGE Analysis

While Kanter said Sunday that he intends to return after missing the last two games with back spasms, the decision won't ultimately be in his hands, and at this point it's unclear whether he'll be able to play. Look for an update closer to tip-off. If Kanter can't go, Kyle O'Quinn would likely make another start in his place.
