Burks notched 18 points (6-15 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 5-7 FT), six rebounds and two assists in 28 minutes off the bench during Monday's 109-101 Game 1 loss against the Celtics. Burks logged a heavy dose of minutes off the bench and responded well to the call, tying with Tobias Harris for the second-most points on the team behind Joel Embiid, who scored 26. The veteran guard isn't going to crack the starting lineup anytime soon, but he has an established role as a scorer off the bench, so he should remain valuable in fantasy as long as he keeps seeing the floor regularly.
Burks scored 16 points (6-11 FG, 4-6 3Pt) while adding five rebounds, five assists and two steals in 22 minutes off the bench during Friday's 134-96 win over the Rockets. After missing Wednesday's game with a sore foot, Burks looked good in his return to action as he put together his best performance from three-point range since the restart. The 29-year-old has become a big part of the backcourt rotation with Ben Simmons (knee) out, averaging 20.3 points, 4.0 boards, 3.3 assists and 2.5 threes over 25.3 minutes in his last four games.
Burks (foot) is off the injury report ahead of Friday's game against the Rockets. Burks will take part in the 76ers' final seeding game. Over his past three appearances, he's averaged 21.7 points, 3.7 rebounds and 2.7 assists in 26.3 minutes.
Burks will not play Wednesday against the Raptors due to a sore left foot, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. The Sixers noted that the injury is not considered serious, so it's likely Burks is simply getting the night off on the second half of a back-to-back. In Tuesday's start against the Suns, Burks went for a bubble-high 23 points on 9-of-17 shooting.
Burks exploded for 23 points (9-17 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four assists, two rebounds and one steal in 28 minutes during Tuesday's loss against the Suns. The 76ers rested most of their regulars, so Burks had the chance to show what he could do with extended minutes, and he didn't disappoint. He is not strange to these scoring exploits, as this 23-point effort marked the 16th time Burks has scored 20 or more points in the current season. Burks should continue as a bench threat during the playoffs, but he might get another chance to start in the final two regular-season games against the Raptors (Aug. 12) and the Rockets (Aug. 14).
