      Jazz's Alec Burks: Scores eight points in 25 minutes Monday

      Burks scored eight points (2-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-6 FT) to go with two rebounds, three assists, and a steal in 25 minutes Monday against the Thunder. Burks didn't have his best game Monday, as it was only the second time he failed to reach double-digit points this season. However, the 24-year-old has been a scoring force off the Utah bench thus far. So far this season, he's averaged 15.6 PPG in 27.8 minutes per game, giving him some good fantasy value despite coming off the bench.

      Jazz's Alec Burks: Scores team-high 24 off the bench Tuesday

      Burks scored a team-high 24 points (7-13 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 6-6 FT) over 30 minutes off the bench in Tuesday's 118-114 loss to the Cavaliers. Burks has really been a spark plug for Utah's second unit and kept them in this game with his lights out shooting. He isn't normally a threat from downtown, but exploded with four treys Tuesday.

      Jazz's Alec Burks: Scores 15 off the bench Friday

      Burks scored 15 points (6-8 FG, 1-1 3P, 2-3 Ft) with seven rebounds in 27 minutes off the bench during Friday's win over the 76ers. He seems to be adapting well to a bench role behind Rodney Hood, and Burks is averaging 16.5 points and 6.5 boards through the first two games of the season as Utah's main scoring threat in the second unit.

      Jazz's Alec Burks: Comes off the bench Wednesday against Pistons

      Burks will come off the bench in Utah's opener Wednesday versus the Pistons, Jody Geneessy of the Deseret News reports. Even though he'll come off the bench, Burks stands a good chance of getting significant minutes. This move could be a move to get more bench scoring, and the 24-year-old could see starts later in the season. Rodney Hood will start in his place.

      Jazz's Alec Burks: No longer a safe bet to start Wednesday

      Burks is no longer being viewed as a lock to start at shooting guard for Wednesday's season opener against the Pistons, Jody Genessy of the Deseret News reports. Despite coach Quin Snyder labeling Burks as the "unquestioned starter" at shooting guard during training camp, it appears the 24-year-old may be considered a better fit off the bench, where he and Trey Burke could potentially give the second unit a much-needed scoring jolt. The starting situation remains fluid and Wednesday's lineup shouldn't be taken as a precursor of what's to come for the remainder of the season, as Burks is still likely to outpace second-year man Rodney Hood for minutes at the position this season.

      Alec Burks: 'Unquestioned starter' at shooting guard for Jazz

      The Jazz view Alec Burks as the "unquestioned starter" at shooting guard, according to the Salt Lake Tribune's Tony Jones. Though coach Quin Snyder hasn't confirmed as much, Burks appears to be doing everything in his power to hold off second-year man Rodney Hood for the starting gig, as he's turned in an effective preseason. Over five preseason contests, Burks has averaged 12.4 points in 27 minutes per game, all while converting at a 46.8 percent clip from the field. If he can hover closer to that mark rather than the career-low 40.3 percent rate he shot in 2014-15, Burks should have a decent shot at finishing as the clear-cut third scoring option on the Jazz behind stars Gordon Hayward and Derrick Favors.

      Jazz G Alec Burks scores game-high 27 points in win

      Jazz guard Alec Burks tallied a game-high 27 points (9-14 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 8-14 FT), six assists, five rebounds, and three steals in 37 minutes of action Tuesday against the Lakers. After he was held scoreless in the preseason opener Sunday, Burks, who is returning from shoulder surgery that ended his past season prematurely, was Tuesday's standout performer, though he did benefit from playing 37 of the game's 53 minutes. Along with scoring six of Utah's 12 points in overtime, Burks showed sound decision making, surrendering only two turnovers against his six assists. Burks is believed to be in a competition with Rodney Hood for the starting shooting-guard role, so he'll need to put together a few more strong preseason performances in order to keep himself at the top of the depth chart.

      Jazz G Alec Burks begins post-surgery rehab

      Jazz guard Alec Burks began his rehab from shoulder surgery this week, he told the Deseret News on Friday. Burks, who had season-ending shoulder surgery on Wednesday, revealed that his shoulder has not been at 100 percent since his college days at Colorado. He first injured his left shoulder in college, then aggravated it at the beginning of training camp leading up to this season. "I don't think it was healthy all year. It just finally came to a point where I had to get it fixed," Burks said. "I had a really bad shoulder and they fixed it. This will repair everything. I'm going to have a 100 percent shoulder. Finally." Burks' left arm will remain on a sling for the time being. His rehab consists of moving his left arm twice a week to help restore mobility. He'll start progressing to basketball-related activities once he ditches the sling.

      Jazz G Alec Burks to undergo season-ending shoulder surgery

      The Jazz announced Tuesday guard Alec Burks will undergo season-ending surgery to repair his injured left shoulder.
