Burke (back) was upgraded to probable for Monday's game against the Warriors following morning shootaround, broadcaster David Locke reports. Burke was relegated to a total of 23 minutes playing time over his previous two games while dealing with back spasms and there's no guarantee he'll be able to play his normal workload of 22 minutes Monday either, despite it looking like he'll be available. If he's limited yet again, Raul Neto and Alec Burks are the only viable options to play point in Utah.
Burke is considered probable for Monday's game against the Warriors due to back spasms, Jody Genessy of Deseret News reports. Burke played 15 minutes in Saturday's contest against the Pelicans, and will likely continue to see his minutes increase as he further parts himself from the back spasms that limited him to just eight minutes Wednesday. His probable status for Monday's game bodes well, but a refreshed status should come at some point prior to the contest if the team provides one.
Burke scored eight points (3-6 FG, 2-3 3Pt) and added two rebounds and one assist over 15 minutes in Saturday's win over the Pelicans. Burke, who exited Wednesday's game against the Clippers and missed Friday's practice due to back spasms, was able to recover in time to give the Jazz some solid minutes off the bench Saturday. Though he played well in his limited run, Burke still saw about six minutes below his average for the season, suggesting the Jazz weren't quite comfortable giving him a full workload. He could see his minutes tick up slightly as he becomes further removed from the back issue.
Burke (back) is questionable for Saturday's tilt versus New Orleans, Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune reports. Burke was able to participate in the team's shootaround Saturday morning, which is a positive sign for his status against the Pelicans. He left Wednesday's game early due to back spasms, which caused him to miss Friday's practice. Expect an update on his status closer to tip-off.
Burke (back) was unable to practice Friday and is considered questionable for Saturday's game against the Pelicans, Aaron Falk of The Salt Lake Tribune reports. Burke prematurely exited Wednesday's game against the Clippers with back spasms which apparently have lingered into Friday. If he's unable to go Saturday, Raul Neto and Alec Burks will be the only viable options to man point in Utah.
