Burke (forearm) went through a full practice Wednesday, J. Michael of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.
Burke was held out of practice Tuesday with an unspecified forearm issue, but it appears to be nothing serious. Expect Burke to be available in his usual reserve role Thursday against the Pacers.
Details regarding the injury are unknown, but Burke should nonetheless be considered questionable for Thursday's game against the Pacers until the
Burke put up five points (2-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three assists, one rebound and one block across 12 minutes in a 116-108 win over the Lakers on Thursday.
After logging 19 minutes in the Wizards' 16-point win over the Knicks on Tuesday, Burke saw his playing time take a hit Thursday in a more competitive contest. Since exploding for 27 points in a Dec. 30 win over the Nets, Burke has scored no more than nine points in any of his last 17 contests, effectively taking him off the fantasy radar in the majority of formats.
Burke put up four points (2-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt), three assists and one rebound across 20 minutes in a 120-101 win over the Trail Blazers on Monday.
Burke has held down a steady role on the Wizards' second unit for most of the season, but he saw an uptick in playing time Monday with Washington rolling to an easy win. Since exploding for 27 points against the Nets on Dec. 30, Burke has predictably cooled off, with his opportunities also dwindling a bit following Bradley Beal's return from a brief absence due to injury. In his eight January contests, Burke is averaging 2.6 points, 2.8 assists and 1.0 rebound in 12.8 minutes per game, which will effectively keep him off the fantasy radar unless John Wall and/or Beal is sidelined long term.
Burke tallied 27 points (10-12 FG, 5-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, two assists and two steals across 30 minutes in a 118-95 win over the Nets on Friday.
The Wizards were in need of one of their other guards to step up in a secondary scoring role with Bradley Beal (ankle) sitting out, and Burke surprisingly emerged to fill that void, besting his previous season high by nine points. Though Burke demonstrated the ability to help shoulder some of the scoring load while working as a lead playmaker for the Jazz in his first two seasons in the league, he's rarely been efficient in doing so, as his career 38.8 percent and 33.4 percent marks from the field and three-point range, respectively, would suggest. Burke should benefit from more touches and minutes alongside starting point guard John Wall if Beal is to miss more time, but don't rely on him to turn in any more explosive outings on this level.
