DeAndre Jordan managed just three points, seven rebounds and four dimes in 20 minutes off the bench on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Kanter bolsters a second unit in Portland that is starting to shape up into a decent group. Kanter won't see big value thanks to Jusuf Nurkic, but he could still be worth a fantasy roster spot if he can play minutes in the 20s on a consistent basis.
