Burks went for 10 points (4-11 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and four rebounds across 19 minutes during a 95-86 loss to the Bulls on Saturday. Burks saw a slightly increased workload with Rodney Hood (knee) missing another game and was able to score in double figures for the fourth time so far in March. His 11 field goal attempts matched a season high. Hood isn't expected to miss much more time, so Burks will likely be looking at fewer opportunities soon.
Burks dropped 21 points (5-11 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 8-9 FT), seven rebounds, and two assists across 24 minutes during Saturday's 112-104 loss to the Thunder. Burks hit an impressive three of his five three-point attempts on his way to 21 points, a much better clip than his season average of 33.3 percent from that distance. He struggled to find his stroke at the beginning of the season after missing the first 34 games with an ankle injury, but has picked it up over his past 10 games, knocking down an average of 39.1 percent of his attempts from beyond the arc. That being said, he's only playing 15.7 minutes per game this season, severely limiting his fantasy potential, making him only valuable in the deepest of fantasy formats.
Burks finished with eight points (3-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding seven rebounds and two assists over 28 minutes in Wednesday's 107-80 loss against the Timberwolves. Burks played a season-high 28 minutes, mostly because of the lopsided score. He is averaging 7.4 points over his past 10 outings, but he doesn't offering much more than a smattering of rebounds, assists and an occasional steal for fantasy owners in deeper leagues.
Burks tallied 12 points (5-11 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three rebounds and one assist over 22 minutes in Thursday's 112-105 overtime loss to the Mavericks. As is often the case, Burks set the pace of the Jazz bench, posting double-digit scoring for the second straight game after a stretch of three consecutive single-digit efforts. The sixth-year pro continues to serve as one of the more productive sixth men in the league, and has now seen over 20 minutes in all February contests. After shooting just 3-for-16 in his first two games of the month, Burks has bounced back to post a 50.0 percent success rate (12-for-24) over the last three outings.
Burks supplied 15 points (4-5 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 5-6 FT) and two rebounds over 16 minutes in Saturday's 102-95 loss to the Grizzlies. Burks was impressively efficient once again, scoring just under a point per minute on the floor while racking up his fifth straight double-digit scoring effort. The sixth-year sharpshooter has now scored a combined 26 points over his last 30 minutes on the court across a two-game span, and is currently one of the most offensively-proficient sixth men in the league, averaging 13.0 points over the last five contests.
