    Jazz's Alec Burks: Ditches walking boot

    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.

    Jazz's Alec Burks: Set for Tuesday surgery

    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.

    Jazz's Alec Burks: Has fractured fibula and out minimum of six weeks

    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.

    Jazz's Alec Burks: Scores 13 points in 20 minutes

    Burks finished with 13 points (3-7 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 6-9 FT) and two rebounds across 20 minutes in Monday's 110-89 win over the Suns. Burks has come off the bench the last two games and has seen his playing time suffer for it, as he's averaged just 10.5 points (on 42.9 percent shooting) in 18.5 minutes. The strong play of starting point guard Raul Neto during that span has contributed to Burks' demise, but due to Neto's limitations as a scorer, it's likely that Burks will gradually begin to see his minutes draw closer to 30 per game.

    Jazz's Alec Burks: To come off the bench Friday

    Burks will return to his reserve role Friday versus Denver, David Locke of The Zone Sports Network reports. After starting his third game of the year on Wednesday, and second of his last three, Burks will come off the bench again in favor of Raul Neto. While Burks minutes may be slightly hampered, expect him to continue seeing close to his normal workload.

    Jazz's Alec Burks: Moves back to starting role, but scores only eight points

    Burks scored eight points (2-10 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 4-6 FT) to go with five boards, two assists, and two turnovers across 33 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Pelicans. For the second time in three games, Burks entered the starting lineup as part of a three-wing lineup, but it failed to get the Jazz out of their funk, as they wilted in the fourth quarter against the lowly Pelicans. Coach Quin Snyder seems content to continue experimenting with his lineups in order to get the Jazz back on the winning track, so it's quite possible that Burks could ultimately settle back on the bench with Raul Neto reclaiming point guard duties on the top unit. Regardless of how he's utilized, Burks has been seeing minutes in the high-20s-to-low-30s all season, meaning that a possible to reserve role likely wouldn't change his fantasy value.

    Jazz's Alec Burks: Sees just 18 minutes Monday

    Burks played only 18 minutes in Monday's 118-81 loss to the Spurs, contributing eight points (2-9 FG, 4-4 FT), three assists, and one rebound. Nearly all of the Jazz's core players saw their playing time cut significantly after the Spurs raced out to a 23-point halftime advantage. Burks, who moved into a bench role after scoring 21 points in a start Sunday against the Thunder, was actually outproduced by Raul Neto (12 points) on Monday, but because of the nature of this game, it's best not to draw too many conclusions from the minutes or production of any player.

    Jazz's Alec Burks: Coming off bench Monday

    Burks will be replaced by Raul Neto in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Spurs, Jazz radio announcer David Locke reports. Burks was handed his second start of the season Sunday against the Thunder, scoring 21 points to go with five rebounds, but will return to his usual sixth-man role Monday versus San Antonio. Despite the lineup change, Burks can be deployed as he normally would be by fantasy owners to begin this week.
