Enes Kanter starting Saturday Night vs Atlanta Hawks
January 16Grant WhiteSportsGrid
According to Brooke Olzendam, Enes Kanter has worked his way into the starting lineup. Kanter, who has played in all 12 games for the Portland Trail Blazers, will be starting in place of Jusuf Nurkic who went down with a fractured wrist.
This will be Kanter’s first start of the season. He has been productive off the bench scoring 10.0 points and 8.9 rebounds while averaging 18.7 minutes per game. Kanter’s presence is unlikely to affect the two-headed monster CJ McCollum and Damian Lillard, who are averaging a combined 54.5 points per game for the Blazers. Kanter may see a boost in production, but his $10,000 salary at FanDuel is still hard to justify.
The 234.5 total implies that the game against the Atlanta Hawks might be a bit of a track meet and the Blazers are 5 point chalk at home. Tip-off is 10 pm EST.
