Burke registered 11 points (4-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), two rebounds and four assists over 14 minutes in Tuesday's preseason victory over Guangzhou.
Burke only saw 14 minutes off the bench, but he made the most of his opportunities by knocking home four of his seven attempts from the field. He may struggle to see consistent minutes during the regular season behind Ben Simmons and Shake Milton, but his performance Tuesday evening certainly won't hurt his case for playing time.
Burke signed a one-year contract with Philadelphia on Thursday, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Burke played for the Knicks and Mavericks last season, averaging 10.9 points (43.1% FG, 35.2% 3PT, 83.1% FT) and 2.7 assists in 19.4 minutes per game across 58 total appearances. His deal with Philadelphia is a minimum contract that will pay him $1.84 million. He'll add point guard depth for a 76ers team that is thin at the position and in need of capable three point shooters.
Burke contributed 24 points (8-16 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 6-6 FT), five assists, two rebounds, and one steal in 29 minutes during Sunday's 129-127 overtime win against the Grizzlies.
Burke has reached double figures in scoring in five straight games while scoring at least 24 points twice during that same span. If Luka Doncic (thigh), who has been sidelined for the last two matchups, misses Tuesday's contest versus the lowly Suns, Burke will likely enjoy a high usage rate offensively once again.
Burke finished with 13 points (4-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 5-6 FT) and three assists over 30 minutes in the Mavericks' loss to the Grizzlies on Friday.
Burke drew the start on Friday and turned his 30 minutes into a very modest performance. Still, he's been fairly productive in his last four games with averages of 16.5 points, 5.0 assists and 2.5 boards in 25.8 minutes. In that time, he's hoisted 12 shots per contest. With Dallas in full tank mode, expect Burke to continue to see a solid chunk of minutes and heavy involvement in the offense for the final three games of the season.
Burke is starting at point guard Friday night against the Grizzlies, Bobby Karalla of the Mavericks' official site reports.
With Luka Doncic (thigh) on the shelf, Burke will draw his first start since Jan. 30, when he poured in 16 points as a Knick. He should see plenty of opportunities to show his skillset at this point in the season.
Burke tallied 16 points (6-14 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-6 FT), six rebounds, and five assists in 29 minutes during Monday's 122-102 victory over Philadelphia.
Burke produced another strong scoring effort Monday, making it two consecutive games with at least 16 points. His playing time is up over that short period and it could be the Mavericks are going to run him out there with more regularity down the stretch. Burke has the ability to score the ball in bunches and could be worth a speculative flyer if you need a short burst of points.
Burke supplied a team-high 25 points (10-18 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 1-2 FT) to go with eight assists in 31 minutes Sunday in the Mavericks' 106-103 win over the Thunder.
With Luka Doncic (thigh) sitting out, Burke stepped up to provide Dallas with another play-making option out of the backcourt, establish new personal bests as a Maverick in the points and assists columns. Dallas doesn't expect to have Doncic available for the second half of the back-to-back set Monday versus Philadelphia, making Burke an interesting punt play in DFS contests.
Burke supplied 13 points (3-7 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 5-5 FT), two assists and one steal across 21 minutes in the Mavericks' 126-91 win over the Warriors on Saturday.
Burke continues to offer solid production off the bench, with Saturday's scoring tally his second of the double-digit variety in the last three games. The 2013 first-round pick doesn't contribute much anywhere else on the stat sheet, but he should be able to continue serving as a serviceable source of points more often than not if his minutes remain in their current range of the high teens-low 20s.
Burke registered 15 points (5-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-6 FT), one rebound, one assist and one block across 22 minutes in the Mavericks' 126-118 loss to the Trail Blazers on Wednesday.
Burke's production continues to enjoy occasional spikes along the lines of Wednesday's, as he's now posted four double-digit scoring efforts since the All-Star break. The 26-year-old's playing time has been hard to trust, however, as he's logged minutes in the teens or lower in six other games during that span as well. Burke's aforementioned quartet of productive performances have come with an allotment of at least 18 minutes, but it remains to be seen if coach Rick Carlisle continues to keep the former Knick's second-unit role in flux.
Burke (illness) won't play in Wednesday's tilt with the Pacers, Mark Followill of Fox Sports Southwest reports.
Burke won't play after the feeling sick prior to tipoff Wednesday. The illness is unlikely to last too long, however Burke will be a game-time decision for Saturday's game against Memphis. Look for Jalen Brunson and Devin Harris to receive more run while Burke is out.
Burke turned in 20 points (8-15 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), seven rebounds and three assists across 23 minutes in Saturday's 125-109 loss to the Jazz.
Burke logged his best stat line yet with his new team on Saturday, and it appears that he's one of the prime candidates to benefit from Dennis Smith Jr's departure. Although Jalen Brunson has a firm grip on a starting role when the Mavs employ Tim Hardaway at the wing, Burke's effort on Saturday proved that he's going to be a key contributor in the backcourt in the second half of the season.
Burke contributed 18 points (5-9 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 5-6 FT), five rebounds, five assists, and two steals in 27 minutes during Friday's 122-107 loss to the Bucks.
Burke saw three more minutes than rookie starter Jalen Brunson, matching Luka Doncic (hand) and Tim Hardaway for the team high in minutes. After playing just four minutes in his Mavericks debut on Wednesday, Burke filled up the box score and may have scored some points with coach Rick Carlisle. With J.J. Barea (Achilles) out for the season, Burke will be competing with Brunson and Devin Harris for playing time at the point guard spot, though Carlisle is known for running plenty of multi-guard lineups.
Burke played four minutes and contributed zero points (0-2 FG), one rebound and one assist Wednesday in the Mavericks' 99-93 win over the Hornets.
Making his Mavericks debut, Burke served as the 10th man in coach Rick Carlisle's rotation and didn't make much of an impression during his time on the court. Dallas is seemingly content to deploy either Jalen Brunson or Luka Doncic as its main ball-handlers, leaving scant playing time left over for Burke whenever the former two players are on the bench simultaneously.
Burke (not injury related) will be available Wednesday against the Hornets, Dwain Price of the Mavericks' official site reports.
Burke has been out for the past two games while waiting for trade formalities to be completed. He'll be set to play Wednesday, though it's not clear what sort of role he'll have with the Mavericks, as coach Rick Carlisle has shown a liking for Jalen Brunson as backup point guard.
Burke will not play in Saturday's game against the Cavaliers, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.
As expected, given that he and the other two former Knicks players traded to Dallas are undergoing physicals today, Burke will not travel with the team to Cleveland. Chances are Burke and the others will be set to play their first game in a Mavericks uniform in Wednesday's home game against Charlotte, although Burke's fit in the team's rotation, given the presence of both Jalen Brunson and Devin Harris, is uncertain at this time.
Burke has been traded to the Mavericks in the deal that primarily involved Dennis Smith Jr., Kristaps Porzingis and Tim Hardaway Jr., Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Burke has seen his role fluctuate heavily this season, though he's notably averaging 16.5 points, 3.3 assists, 1.0 rebound and 1.0 steal in 28.3 minutes across the past four games. It's not immediately clear what his role will be in Dallas, but he'll presumably play a backup role in some capacity to Luka Doncic at point guard.
Burke collected 16 points (7-14 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-3 FT), three assists, two steals, one rebound and one block across 32 minutes in Wednesday's 114-90 loss to the Mavericks.
Burke continues to get extended run with Emmanuel Mudiay (shoulder) and Frank Ntilikina (groin) still sidelined. He made the most of it Wednesday night, shooting 50 percent with a nice effort on the defensive end as well. Over the last four games, Burke has made his case to stick around, averaging 16.5 points on 47 percent shooting and 3.3 assists.
Burke is starting at point guard Monday against the Hornets, Marc Berman of the New York Post reports.
Burke is set to join the starting lineup Monday with Emmanuel Mudiay (shoulder) and Frank Ntilikina (groin) both battling injuries. Seeing as Mudiay and Ntilikina could both miss multiple weeks, Burke could temporarily take over as the team's starting point guard. The 26-year-old held his own in a five-start stretch at the beginning of the season, averaging 11.2 points, 5.0 assists and 3.2 rebounds in 24 minutes per game.
Burke tallied 16 points (7-16 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), two assists and one rebound across 23 minutes Sunday in the Knicks' 106-97 loss to the Heat.
In the wake of Emmanuel Mudiay's (shoulder) multi-week injury, Burke re-entered the rotation with a bang in the Knicks' previous game Friday against the Nuggets, pouring in a team-high 25 points. Burke continued to bring the offense Sunday and saw his fantasy outlook take a turn for the better after starting point guard Frank Ntilikina exited with a groin strain during the contest. Ntilikina didn't travel to Charlotte for the second half of the back-to-back set Monday against the Hornets and could be at risk of missing additional time beyond that, so Burke may be in line for at least a short-term deployment in the starting five. Burke makes for a worthy pickup with the Knicks set to begin a four-game week.
Burke totaled 25 points (10-19 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five assists, two steals and a block over 33 minutes in the Knicks' loss to the Nets on Friday.
As expected, Burke took on an expanded role in the absence of Emmanuel Mudiay (shoulder), playing a season-high 33 minutes. When given an opportunity this season, Burke has been a reliable scorer capable of explosive games and able to chip in modest rebounding and assist totals. His usage should continue to trend up with Mudiay set to miss at least two weeks.
