Jazz center Enes Kanter to have treatment on right knee

Jazz center Enes Kanter will be out of action for about two weeks after getting medical treatment on his right knee, according to sources. Kanter's knee will receive an injection of platelet rich plasma to treat quadriceps tendonitis, a common overuse condition in athletes that causes soreness and inflammation above the kneecap. The injection will take place Tuesday by Kanter...

Utah Jazz: What’s wrong with Enes Kanter?

Enes Kanter has been removed from the starting lineup, and rather than use that demotion as motivation to prove he belongs back in the starting lineup, he appears to have lost all confidence. What is going on with his game? When it comes to offensive possessions, Kanter was seen as the stronger player to Favors, but Favors has actually demonstrated he’s the better option in many...

Gah! Enes Kanter suffers dislocated shoulder and it was obvious to all (video)

When Utah Jazz center Enes Kanter made his first appearance in his team’s game against the Phoenix Suns during the second quarter, little did he know that a mere few minutes later he would suffer a ghastly shoulder dislocation. To be honest, at first look, the play that resulted in the injury appeared fairly innocuous. Kanter simply was going to the floor in an effort to gain control...

Enes Kanter calls himself ‘Pimp Daddy,’ tweets a shout-out to his ‘sweeties’ (pic)

I’ll have to admit I am not familiar as perhaps I should be with Enes Kanter, the second-year center for the Utah Jazz. But from what I am learning now, the young man clearly is a bit of an eccentric fellow. Kanter, who hails from Turkey, not only is he a player with some potential, he is also a person who realizes that there is no reason not to have fun a little fun while savoring...

Photo: Enes Kanter draped in Jazz cheerleaders

 The Utah Jazz recently had their photo shoot in preparation for the upcoming 2012-13 NBA season. Seen here is Jazz big man Enes Kanter covered with a handful of the team's cheerleaders. Hey, if Kanter's pro basketball career doesn't pan out he can always be a spotter or a base for the Utah cheerleading squad. That much we know is true.

Enes Kanter Shows Moves in Jazz Rookie Dance-Off (Video)

Enes Kanter is known for being a power post player who could stand to improve his footwork. So it should come as no surprise that Kanter is far from a talented dancer. Kanter showed as much when he and fellow Utah Jazz second-year players participated in the team's rookie dance-off recently after missing their chance last year due to the lockout. As the saying goes, good things...

Enes Kanter leads Utah Jazz rookie dance-off (Video)

Utah Jazz center Enes Kanter was the clear fan favorite during the rookie dance-off held before the team's open scrimmage at the EnergySolutions Arena in Salt Lake City. Although Kanter is not the greatest dancer, and his version of the worm looked more like a push-up, the crowd ate it up.  Also taking part in the dance-off were teammates Kevin Murphy and Alec Burks...

Enes Kanter Jams Home Five-Pass Pool Alley-Oop Through Inner Tube (Video)

Enes Kanter is not known for his ups. The Swiss-born center developed solidly in his rookie season with the Utah Jazz last season, but at 6-foot-11 and 262 pounds, Kanter uses his girth more than his athleticism on the court. In the swimming pool, though, it appears to be a different story. Kanter can finish lobs with the best of them when H2O is involved, even when the alley-oop...

Enes Kanter dropped the mic after giving Jazz fans a pregame speech (Video)

If Enes Kanter wasn’t a Jazz fan favorite before, he is now. The 19-year-old Turkish rookie has only played limited minutes this season, but the dude is hardcore. Oh yes. Kanter seemed to be pushed by his teammates to deliver a pregame speech to Jazz fans prior to the team’s game against Portland on Thursday, and he knocked it out of the park. Kanter straight up grabbed the...

Kanter's speech to fans features epic 'mic drop'

The Utah Jazz had their rookie Enes Kanter give the end of the year speech to Jazz fans and it didn’t disappoint. The speech was to the point, motivational, and featured the best mic drop we have since Beyonce announced her pregnancy at last year’s MTV Music Awards. The Utaz Jazz players’ reactions were priceless. H/T The Big Lead Article found on: Cosby Sweaters
