Knicks' Alec Burks: Puts up 12 points in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks recorded 12 points (5-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds and four assists across 24 minutes off the bench in Wednesday's loss to the Hawks.

Burks delivered 27 points in the series opener but was unable to surpass the 12-point mark in any of the subsequent four games. The veteran served as a decent scoring threat off the bench for the Knicks in both the regular season and the playoffs, but he wasn't the one tasked with carrying the team offensively. For what it's worth, Burks averaged 14.0 points per game while shooting 42.8 percent from the field during the postseason.

Knicks' Alec Burks: Goes off for 27, but Knicks lose
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks had 27 points (9-13 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 6-8 FT), four assists and three rebounds in Sunday's Game 1 loss to the Hawks.

Burks fell just three points shy of his season high, and the Knicks needed every single one of his 27 to keep up with Atlanta down the stretch. Burks drilled key shot after key shot on his way to 18 points in the fourth quarter alone. While New York ultimately fell victim to a Trae Young floater with 0.9 seconds left, it was a night to remember for Burks, who's been an unsung hero off the bench for the fourth seed in the East all season.

Knicks' Alec Burks: Best performance of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks delivered 30 points (11-20 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists and a block across 34 minutes off the bench in Thursday's win over the Spurs.

Burks was listed as questionable for this matchup due to a knee problem, but it's clear this ailment didn't bother him at all en route to a game-high 30 points. The veteran shooting guard also recorded a season-high mark with his 30-point output, and he has surpassed the 25-point mark just twice all season long.

Knicks' Alec Burks: Available Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks (knee) is available Thursday against the Spurs, Mark Stein of The New York Times reports.

As expected, Burks is available for Thursday's contest despite a knee issue. He'll be making his return after a three-game absence.

Knicks' Alec Burks: Listed as probable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks (knee) is probable for Thursday's game against the Spurs.

Burks initially carried a questionable designation for Thursday's matchup, but he now appears likely to play. Burks has missed 11 of the last 13 games due to a knee injury and the league's COVID-19 protocols, so he could have a minutes restriction if he's active.

May 13, 2021 01:00 PM
Knicks' Alec Burks: Questionable again Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks (knee) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Spurs.

A bruised left knee has kept Burks out of the last three games, including Tuesday night's overtime loss to the Lakers. He'll have another chance to make his return to action Thursday, but a final call may not come until close to the 7:30 p.m. ET tip. Between the knee injury and a stay in the league's COVID-19 protocols, Burks has missed 11 of the Knicks' last 13 games.

Knicks' Alec Burks: Out vs. Lakers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks (knee) is out for Tuesday's contest against the Lakers.

Burks will sit out for a third straight game due to a left knee bruise. Immanuel Quickley (ankle) is out as well, so the Knicks remain shorthanded in the backcourt. More usage should funnel to Derrick Rose as a result.

May 10, 2021 07:16 PM
Knicks' Alec Burks: Questionable Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks (knee) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Lakers.

Burks has missed the last two contests while dealing with a bruised knee, and how he fares in shootaround and pregame warmups will likely determine his status. Expect an update closer to tipoff.

Knicks' Alec Burks: Officially out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks (knee) will not play Sunday against the Clippers, Marc Berman of the New York Post reports.

Burks will miss his second game in a row as expected while dealing with a left knee bruise. Kevin Knox and Derrick Rose will likely be the main beneficiaries from his absence.

Knicks' Alec Burks: Unlikely to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knicks' Alec Burks: Out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks (knee) will not play Friday's game against the Suns, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.

Burks was deemed doubtful heading into the evening, so no surprise here. With Immanuel Quickley (ankle) also sidelined, some combination of RJ Barrett and Derrick Rose could see increased minutes, while Frank Ntilikina could potentially return to the rotation.

Knicks' Alec Burks: Listed as doubtful
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks (knee) is doubtful for Friday's game against the Suns.

Burks has managed to play through his lingering knee injury in back-to-back games, but he's trending in the wrong direction for Friday's contest. If Burks can't go, RJ Barrett could end up handling increased minutes.

Knicks' Alec Burks: Good to go Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks (knee) is available for Wednesday's game against the Nuggets, Ian Begley of SportsNet New York reports.

Burks picked up a minor knee injury in his return to the court Monday after missing the previous eight games due to COVID-19-related conditioning issues. He appears to be alright, and his minutes should continue to increase with each game as his conditioning improves. The 29-year-old is averaging 12.5 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 25.6 minutes per game this season.

Knicks' Alec Burks: Probable Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks is probable for Wednesday's contest against the Nuggets due to a bruised left knee.

Burks made his return Monday against the Grizzlies, and he posted nine points, two rebounds and two assists in 16 minutes. He picked up a knee injury along the way, but he's still expected to see the court again Wednesday.

Knicks' Alec Burks: Cleared to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks (conditioning) has been cleared to play Monday against Memphis.

Burks' status was unclear after failing to appear in Sunday's contests against the Rockets, but the team has announced prior to tip that he'll be available off the bench. He last appeared Apr. 14 against the Pelicans, finishing with 21 points, seven boards, one assist and one steal in 22 minutes.

Knicks' Alec Burks: DNP Sunday, uncertain for Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks (conditioning) didn't see the floor during Sunday's win over Houston, as anticipated.

Burks was technically active, but he remained on the sideline due to conditioning concerns following a multi-game, COVID-19-related absence. The scoring guard figures to return to the rotation at some point during the upcoming week, but it's unclear if Tom Thibodeau will turn to Burks for minutes off the bench Monday at Memphis. Burks is not listed on the Knicks' official injury report as of Monday afternoon.

Knicks' Alec Burks: Unlikely to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks is unlikely to see the floor in Sunday's game against the Rockets due to conditioning, Mike Vorkunov of The Athletic reports.

Burks was removed from the injury report ahead of Wednesday's game against Chicago, but he did not see the floor due to conditioning concerns following a COVID-19-related absence. Those concerns are apparently persisting, as coach Tom Thibodeau told the media Sunday evening that Burks will likely remain inactive for at least one more game. Prior to entering the NBA's health and safety protocols, Burks was averaging 27.2 minutes per game off the bench since the All-Star break.

Knicks' Alec Burks: Off injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks (undisclosed) is off the injury report for Sunday's game against the Rockets.

Burks was off the injury report for Wednesday's game as well, but he ended up not seeing the court. Considering the situation, fantasy managers should still be on the lookout for additional news regarding Burks' availability.

Knicks' Alec Burks: Ruled out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks is inactive for Wednesday's game against the Bulls, Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News reports.

Burks exited protocols earlier in the day, and he was initially left off the injury report. However, he'll end up sitting out Wednesday's game -- likely for conditioning reasons. Burks last took the court back on April 14 in New Orleans. He'll have a good chance to return to the mix Sunday in Houston.

April 28, 2021 01:40 PM
Knicks' Alec Burks: Will be available Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks will be available for Wednesday's game against Chicago.

Burks was initially on track to miss Wednesday's game, but he's been cleared through the league's health and safety protocols and will be an option for coach Tom Thibodeau for the first time in two weeks. While Burks has filled a valuable scoring role off the bench this season, it's possible his workload could be limited given that he hasn't played since April 14 in New Orleans.
