Jazz rookie Trey Burke breaks finger, out indefinitely

By Matt Moore | NBA writer

The Utah Jazz announced Saturday night rookie point guard and ROY favorite Trey Burke sustained a broken right index finger during Utah's preseason loss to the Clippers. He's listed as out indefinitely and will be re-evaluated on Monday.

The Deseret News reports Burke will see a specialist on Monday for further evaluation.

PBT has video of the injury:

Burke was taken ninth in last June's draft and has established himself as the favorite to win Rookie of the Year according to multiple sportsbooks. Worse, the injury is to his shooting hand, so that's obviously going to affect the former Wolverine's shot as well as his handle. The injury certainly doesn't sound good.

Burke was 1-of-6 for two points with four assists in 14 minutes before the injury.
