Burke finished Thursday's 115-105 victory over the Pistons with 15 points (5-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), two assists, one steal and one blocked shot across 19 minutes.
Burke didn't log extensive playing time, but he still finished second on the team in scoring in the win. The veteran guard bounced back from a miserable effort his last time out, when he went 2-for-13 from the field against Golden State. Burke has had an inconsistent role with Dallas this season and is averaging a modest 6.9 points per contest.
Burke will start Tuesday's game against the Warriors.
Tuesday marks Burke's first start of the season, and it comes in the absence of Josh Richardson (hamstring), with coach Rick Carlisle electing to bring Tim Hardaway off the bench. During Monday's game against the Kings, Burke posted 19 points, five assists, two rebounds and two steals in 28 minutes.
Burke (calf) is available for Thursday's game against Milwaukee.
Burke will be back in action after missing Dallas' previous two games. Meanwhile, the Mavericks will be without Tyler Bey (illness), Willie Cauley-Stein (COVID-19 protocols), JJ Redick (heel) and Tyrell Terry (personal).
Burke (calf) is probable for Thursday's game against the Bucks.
After two missed games, Burke is likely to be back in action Thursday. Since the start of March, he's averaged 4.9 points and 1.2 assists in 11.3 minutes.
Burke (calf) is listed as out for Wednesday's game against Houston.
A strained calf will keep Burke out of a second straight game as the Mavs enter a Wednesday/Thursday back-to-back set. Given the schedule, it would not be a surprise if Burke ends up missing Thursday's home matchup versus Milwaukee as well.
Burke (calf) is questionable for Wednesday's game against Houston, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Burke missed just his second game of the season in Monday's win over Utah, and he's once again uncertain for Wednesday's outing. He's averaged just 10.3 minutes per game over the last eight contests, so his absence wouldn't affect the rotation too much.
Burke will not be available for Monday's game against the Jazz due to a sprained left calf.
Burke was not on the Mavs' injury report, so it's possible he picked up the injury during pregame warmups. Regardless, the reserve guard won't be available, freeing up roughly seven-to-10 minutes in the backcourt.
Burke added six points (3-5 FG, 0-2 3Pt), two steals and one rebound during Monday's win over the Thunder.
After posting 13 points in 17 minutes a game prior, Burke struggled from three-point range in this one but managed at least six points for a third straight game. Burke has now tallied double figures in 11 outings this season. Over his past three games, the Michigan product is averaging 8.3 points while grabbing four total rebounds.
Burke had 11 points (4-5 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two assists and one rebound during Monday's win over Orlando.
Burke managed double figures for the first time since Jan. 23 against Houston when he totaled 13 points, as the guard has now scored at least six points in three straight matchups. After dropping just three points over a three-game span Feb. 14 to Feb. 23, Burke has totaled 26 points over the last three games.
Burke finished with five points (2-4 FG, 1-2 3PT), one rebound and one assist in eight minutes Monday night against the Timberwolves.
Burke knocked down half of his attempts from the field, scoring five points for the second game in a row. He's been held to single digits in the scoring column in each of his last nine contests, and he's been unable to provide much value in other areas. Burke will need to earn himself more playing time if he wants to get back into the fantasy conversation.
Burke tallied 13 points (4-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three steals, one rebound and one assist in 24 minutes Saturday in the Mavericks' 133-108 loss to the Rockets.
Burke has found his niche as a bench scorer for the depleted Mavericks of late, hitting double digits in points in six of the last eight games. The 28-year-old has received 20-plus minutes in each of those contests, but he may have to sacrifice some playing time once all of Josh Richardson, Dorian Finney-Smith, Dwight Powell and Maxi Kleber clear the NBA's health and safety protocols. All four players could be back at some point within the next week, so Burke's usefulness in 12-team leagues looks like it may have an expiration date.
Burke went for 22 points (9-16 FG, 4-8 3Pt), three assists, two steals and one rebound across 32 minutes off the bench in Wednesday's 124-112 win over the Pacers.
Over his first seven games this season, Burke cracked double-digit points just once. However, he's done it four times in his last six games, including clearing 20 points twice. He doesn't add much in terms of rebounds or assists, but Burke has shown the ability to score and chip in with some steals when his number is called.
Burke managed 17 points (5-11 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 5-5 FT), three assists and two steals across 26 minutes during Monday's 116-93 loss to the Raptors.
Burke has alternated between games of single digit and double-digit scoring across the last six games, but this was one of his better efforts despite the blowout loss. The 28-year-old guard is off to a good start from deep this season, as he's averaging 1.8 triples per game while shooting 41.5 percent from beyond the arc.
Burke isn't starting Wednesday's game at Charlotte, Mark Followill of Fox Sports Southwest reports.
It appeared the 28-year-old would receive his first start of the season Wednesday, but the Mavericks posted conflicting lineups before tipoff, with Tim Hardaway receiving the nod. Burke should still play a sizable role off the bench for the Mavs.
Burke will start Wednesday's game against the Hornets, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.
The 28-year-old had 29 points in 21 minutes Saturday against the Magic and will receive his first start of the season. Burke should see similar run Wednesday with the Mavericks still shorthanded to the COVID-19 protocols.
Burke went for 29 points (11-13 FG, 7-8 3Pt), four assists and one block in 21 minutes off the bench in Saturday night's 112-98 victory over the Magic.
Burke had struggled to get things going, shooting the ball less than 10 times in five consecutive games before Saturday night's outburst. Burke was able to see extended minutes because of the absences of Josh Richardson, Dorian Finney-Smith and Jalen Brunson (COVID-19 protocols) and showed why he was the ninth overall pick back in 2013.
Burke (illness) will play Saturday against the Magic, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Burke could see a minutes bump Saturday, as the Mavericks are down Josh Richardson, Dorian Finney-Smith and Jalen Brunson due to COVID-19 protocols. In three games this season where Burke has seen 20-plus minutes, he's averaged 9.0 points and 2.0 assists.
Burke (illness) is probable for Saturday's game against the Magic.
Burke missed Thursday's game against Denver due to an illness, but he appears to be trending toward returning to the court Saturday. With Josh Richardson unavailable due to health and safety protocols, Burke could see significant playing time if he's active.
Burke (illness) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Magic, freelance writer Eddie Sefko reports.
Burke sat Thursday against the Nuggets due to an illness, and it's unclear if he'll be ready for Saturday's action. In his absence, Luka Doncic and Josh Richardson both saw over 40 minutes.
Dallas lists Burke as out for Thursday's game against the Nuggets due to an illness, Mavericks radio play-by-play broadcaster Chuck Cooperstein reports.
The Mavericks' decision to rule Burke out a day in advance perhaps suggests that he'll return to Dallas rather than traveling with the team to Denver for the final contest of the three-game road trip. After Luka Doncic (quadriceps) returned from a one-game absence to play the second leg of a back-to-back set Monday in Houston, Burke predictably saw his role decline, as he played a season-low nine minutes in the 113-100 victory.
