Burke will be waived by the 76ers, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. In order to make room for the acquisitions of Glenn Robinson and Alec Burks, the 76ers chose to waive Burke, who appeared in 25 games this season for Philadelphia and averaged 5.9 points, 2.1 assists and 1.4 rebounds in 13.2 minutes. It's possible he lands with another team.
Burke was not with the 76ers during Thursday's morning shootaround, Joe Vardon of The Athletic reports. The 76ers need to trade or waive two players to make room for Alec Burks and Glenn Robinson -- the two players the organization recently traded for. Given that Burke isn't around Thursday, there seems to be a fair chance that he'll be waived or traded.
Burke had zero points (0-2 FG), three assists and one rebound in 12 minutes during Monday's 137-106 loss to the Heat. Burke had been listed as questionable due to an illness but was able to give it a go. This was one of the rare nights when Burke saw more minutes than Raul Neto, who has taken hold of the primary backup point guard gig behind Ben Simmons. While neither backup is all that appealing for fantasy purposes, Burke has barely been involved at all of late.
Burke (illness) is available for Monday's game against the Heat, Ky Carlin of USA Today reports. Burke is dealing with an undisclosed illness but will play through the issue Monday. He's appeared in just three of Philadelphia's past 10 games, playing a total of 10 minutes and tallying just two points.
Burke is dealing with an illness and is questionable for Monday's game against Miami, Ky Carlin of USA Today reports. An absence for Burke wouldn't have a dramatic impact on the 76ers' rotations, as the veteran guard has failed to crack double-digit minutes since Jan. 11. Look for a final update on Burke's status to come out ahead of tipoff.
