Ime Udoka comments on Enes Kanter's lack of playing time and social media posts
Ime Udoka on Enes Kanter’s lack of playing time: “My thing is strictly basketball. We're switching a lot and doing some things that probably are not as natural for him and that's limited his time to some extent … Nothing basketball related will be based on [social media].” pic.twitter.com/f1yr7m3aoO
Enes Kanter has only played 10 minutes total all season. With Al Horford out on Saturday night, Boston struggled mightily the minutes that Robert Williams had to rest, but Ime still wouldn't go to Enes. So while Udoka shot down any insinuation that Kanter's posts on human rights in Taiwan, Tibet, and Hong Kong have anything to do with his DNP's, one does need to wonder why Kanter was re-signed in the first place?
Celtics were a +13 for the 34 mins that Time Lord played & thus a -15 for the 14 mins he didn't.
None of those 14 mins went to Enes Kanter. Why did you re-sign Enes if you aren't going to play him the nights Al is out & you're getting killed the mins Time Lord has to rest?
Brad Stevens and Udoka both know Kanter's strengths and weaknesses on the court by this point in his career. So if he's not going to play when one of your two centers is out, is he only on the roster for the games that both are out? Would he even play then?
