Burks (ankle) is no longer wearing a walking boot, Aaron Falk of the Salt Lake Tribune reports. Burks has been able to do some stand-still shooting over the last few days, but his mobility still remains limited after undergoing surgery to repair a fractured fibula back in late December. The Jazz expect to have him back at some point after the All-Star break, though the team hasn't pinpointed an exact date.
Burks (ankle) will undergo surgery on his fractured left fibula. Already out for at least the next six weeks, Burks was previously expected to avoid surgery. While it's unclear if the new prognosis will change his timeline, the good news is that he won't lose any time waiting, as the procedure is scheduled for Tuesday. Burks' minutes will likely be divided between a slew of different players, with Trey Burke taking on an increased scoring burden for the second unit.
Burks (ankle) has fractured his ankle and is expected to miss a minimum of six weeks, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo reports. Burks underwent an MRI on Sunday morning and it officially revealed a fracture in his left fibula. He's not expected to undergo surgery, but he'll start the long road to recovery moving forward. The original timetable looks to be a minimum of six weeks, which would likely bring him back sometime in the middle of February. With Burks out indefinitely, guards Trey Burke and Raul Neto will be the players that should see an increase in playing time.
Burks' ankle injury is potentially serious, according to Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune. He was in a walking boot following the game, though the extent of the injury is not known. Burks was on the receiving end of a hard foul and suffered a concussion and an ankle injury in Saturday night's loss to the Clippers.
Burks will not return to Saturday's game due to concussion symptoms and a sprained ankle, Jazz broadcaster David Locke reports. Burks was injured on a hard foul in the second quarter. The extent of his injuries are not totally certain, but he will have to pass a concussion test before he is allowed to play again.
