    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.
