Warriors' Alec Burks: Out with ankle sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks has been ruled out for Friday's preseason game against the Lakers due to a right ankle sprain.

Burks continues to battle a right ankle sprain, and he'll be held out Friday as a result. It's unclear if he'll be ready to roll for the preseason opener Thursday against Los Angeles.

Warriors' Alec Burks: Out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks (ankle) won't play Wednesday, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports.

Burks will miss a fourth-straight game due to a right ankle sprain. He's progressing in his recovery and could return for Friday's preseason finale against the Lakers, though it wouldn't be surprising if coach Steve Kerr opted to keep Burks out and give him another week to fully recover ahead of the season opener against the Clippers on October 23rd.

Warriors' Alec Burks: Won't play Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's preseason game against the Lakers, Mike Trudell of the Lakers' official site reports.

Burks is still nursing a sprained right ankle and will miss a third consecutive preseason game as a result. The guard practiced in a limited fashion over the weekend, however, suggesting he'll likely be able to suit up for Golden State's regular-season opener next week.

Warriors' Alec Burks: Getting shots up Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks (ankle) was getting shots up at Saturday's practice, Connor Letourneau of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Burks has been out the past few days while recovering from a sprained right ankle. His progress is encouraging, and it seems more than likely that he'll be able to suit up for the Warriors' regular-season opener. His availability for Monday's game against the Lakers is less clear.

Warriors' Alec Burks: Will be sidelined Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks (ankle) will be sidelined during Thursday's preseason matchup against the Timberwolves, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports.

It'll be the second straight exhibition contest in which Burks will miss due to an ankle sprain. The guard sustained the injury during practice last Friday and, although it doesn't appear to be severe, the Warriors are likely leaning on the side of caution especially in the preseason with Burks.

Warriors' Alec Burks: Sits Saturday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks (ankle) did not play in Saturday's preseason game against the Lakers, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports.

Burks sustained the right ankle sprain during Friday's scrimmage and it still proved bothersome Saturday, so coach Steve Kerr didn't want to take any chances. It doesn't appear to be a severe injury for the 28-year-old, and he should be considered day-to-day.

Warriors' Alec Burks: Could be late scratch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks is questionable for Saturday's preseason game against the Lakers due to a right ankle sprain, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports.

This news comes mere seconds after lineup lock for DFS, and it remains unclear if Burks will be able to take the court. If he's out, Jordan Poole and Jacob Evans could see more action.

Warriors' Alec Burks: Decommits from Thunder, joins Warriors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks agreed Monday with the Warriors on a one-year contract, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Shortly after free agency opened June 30, Burks came to terms on an agreement with the Thunder, but the team allowed him to explore his options elsewhere in the wake of the league-altering trade over the weekend that sent Paul George to the Clippers. With Oklahoma City now seemingly on the brink of a rebuild, Burks elected to move on to a Golden State squad where he should have a good chance at claiming a rotation spot in the backcourt. While splitting time between the Cavaliers, Kings and Jazz in 2018-19, Burks appeared in 64 contests and averaged 8.8 points, 3.7 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.0 three-pointer in 21.5 minutes per game.

Thunder's Alec Burks: To sign with Thunder
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks and the Thunder have agreed to a contract, Royce Young of ESPN reports.

The details have not yet been released, but Burks will likely arrive in Oklahoma City on a cheap deal after splitting last season between Utah, Cleveland and Sacramento. The journeyman struggled to find consistent minutes with the Kings and Jazz but averaged 11.6 points, 5.5 rebounds and 2.9 assists in 34 games (24 starts) for the Cavs. Burks will add depth and three-point shooting in the backcourt behind Terrance Ferguson, Andre Roberson (knee) and Dennis Schroder.

Kings' Alec Burks: Doesn't play in Sunday's victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks (DNP-Coach's Decision) did not see the floor during Sunday's 113-106 win over the Spurs.

Burks saw seven minutes in Saturday's loss to the Rockets. However, he was held scoreless in four of his six appearances during the month of March. Even though the Kings have been eliminated from playoff contention, there's little reason to believe the 27-year-old wing will be more involved down the stretch.

Kings' Alec Burks: Fails to score Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks ended with just three rebounds in 21 minutes during Sunday's 117-104 victory over the Suns.

Burks played 21 minutes in his second game for Sacramento, but finished with just three rebounds, missing his single attempt from the field. Burks finds himself in a far less favorable position in Sacramento and will likely fade out of the standard league conversation.

Kings' Alec Burks: Fares well in team debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks put up nine points (4-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one steal in 15 minutes Friday in the Kings' 102-96 win over the Heat.

Burks' efficient shooting and solid rebounding amounted to a quality Kings debut for the guard, who was acquired from the Cavaliers on Wednesday. That being said, after routinely seeing 30-plus minutes from Cleveland in his recent outings, Burks' playing time was essentially cut in half in the move to Sacramento. It's expected that Burks' minutes will routinely sit in the teens moving forward, eliminating just about all of the fantasy value he previously held.

Kings' Alec Burks: On track to play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks is expected to make his Kings' debut in Friday's game against the Heat, Sean Cunningham of ABC 10 Sacramento reports.

Burks is one of two new Sacramento players that are expected to make their debuts in the purple and black Friday, with former Maverick Harrison Barnes being the other. While Buddy Hield will likely continue to take on majority of the minutes at shooting guard, Burks will likely take on most of the backcourt minutes that once belonged to Iman Shumpert before he was traded to Houston.

Kings' Alec Burks: Shipped to Sacramento
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks was traded from the Cavaliers to the Kings on Wednesday as part of a three-team deal, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

The Kings also received a second-round pick from Cleveland, while the Cavs received Brandon Knight, Marquese Chriss and a 2019 first-round pick from Houston, and the Rockets received Wade Baldwin and Nik Stauskas from the Cavaliers and Iman Shumpert from the Kings. Burks has been a solid contributor since joining Cleveland earlier in the year, averaging 11.6 points, 5.5 rebounds and 2.9 assists through 34 games with the Cavaliers. It's unclear what role the guard will immediately play with his new team, though there are minutes to be had following Shumpert's departure.

Cavaliers' Alec Burks: Contributes 21 points Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks tallied 21 points (9-19 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, two assists and two steals across 37 minutes in Tuesday's 103-96 loss to the Celtics.

Tuesday night was Burks' second-highest scoring total on the season, which shows that his role in the offense with his new team is expanding. He and Colin Sexton played well in the backcourt together and both figged over 37 minutes, which means they are spending a whole lot of time together on the court.

Cavaliers' Alec Burks: Flirts with double-double in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks totaled 11 points (3-8 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), eight rebounds and five assists over 34 minutes in the Cavaliers' loss to the Mavericks on Saturday.

Burks had another strong game on Saturday, recording double-digit points for the fourth time and at least five assists for the fourth time in his last five games. Burks has the potential for big games scoring and dishing, but they're too unpredictable to make him a reliable option.

Cavaliers' Alec Burks: Scores team-high 18 points Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks totaled 18 points (6-13 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds, and two assists in 32 minutes during Sunday's 104-101 victory over Chicago.

Burks matched Jordan Clarkson with a team-high 18 points Sunday, his third straight game in double-figures. Burks did have a stretch of borderline standard league value when he first arrived in Cleveland and perhaps he is starting to trend in that direction once again. Owners should not get too excited just yet but he is worth watching to see if he can continue he scoring ways over the coming weeks.

Cavaliers' Alec Burks: Stellar final line
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks tallied 10 points (3-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT) nine rebounds, six assists, two steals and two blocks in 26 minutes Wednesday against the Celtics.

Burks was held out of the starting lineup in Saturday's contest, and he's since been penciled in with the first unit for two straight games. The 27-year-old guard came within one board of notching a double-double, though it wouldn't matter much in a blowout loss on the road. Burks has been relatively quiet in the scoring column of late, averaging 6.8 points in his previous five matchups.

Cavaliers' Alec Burks: Not starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks is out of the starting lineup for Saturday's game at Denver, Harrison Wind of BSNDenver.com reports.

Burks has started the last seven games and 12 of the last 13, but will head to the bench in favor of Cameron Payne against the Nuggets. The 27-year-old was 6-for-18 for 13 points over the last two games, his lowest scoring output since mid-December.

Cavaliers' Alec Burks: Double-doubles in upset win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks posted 17 points (4-10 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 7-8 FT), 13 rebounds, four assists and one steal across 33 minutes in the Cavaliers' 101-95 win over the Lakers on Sunday.

Burks drew even with rookie Collin Sexton for second in scoring on the team, while his rebounding total trailed only that of Tristan Thompson's. Typically a much more scoring-dependent player in terms of fantasy production prior to this season, Burks has particularly stepped up his work on the boards since coming to Cleveland from the Jazz via trade in late November -- he's now averaging a career-high 5.3 rebounds across 29.1 minutes over 24 games (15 starts) in a Cavs uniform. He's been much more active as a facilitator than in recent seasons as well, with his 2.8 assists per contest his highest figure in that category since the 2014-15 campaign.
