Burton totaled two points (1-3 FG, 0-2 3Pt), three rebounds, and one assist in eight minutes during Monday's 115-103 loss to the Grizzlies.
Burton has earned single-digit minutes in seven of eight appearances since the All-Star break and hasn't reached double figures in scoring since Feb. 11. Despite recently having his two-way contract converted into a full NBA deal, Burton doesn't possess much appeal across most fantasy formats.
The main implication is that Burton's two-way contract has now been converted to a full NBA deal, so he'll be playoff-eligible with a little more security. The details of the contract have not been disclosed, but it likely includes a team option or partial guarantee.
Burton tallied 18 points (7-9 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), and three blocks in 26 minutes during Monday's 120-111 victory over the Trail Blazers.
Burton came out of nowhere to score a career-high 18 points on 7-of-9 shooting. Jerami Grant (ankle) and Dennis Schroder (personal) were both out for this one which afforded Burton additional playing time. We would need to see a lot more of this before taking a look and the production can be viewed as more of an anomaly.
Burton led the Blue with 27 points (10-17 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds, three assists and five steals in the Blue's 130-117 win over the Skyforce on Sunday.
Burton played well on efficient shooting Sunday, but that's nothing new for the rookie. Averaging 17 points per game on 45.7 percent shooting, Burton has emerged as a consistent force on the Blue's offensive end, able to stretch the court somewhat with his ranged touch while finding open looks on drives. Burton's five steals played a big roll as well, as it helped the Blue stay on top of the Skyforce throughout the game. Look for Burton to continue delivering solid stat sheets, though not every night will be a near-30 point performance
Burton won't play in Wednesday's game against the Pelicans, Brett Dawson of The Athletic reports.
Burton won't be active for Wednesday's game after playing just one minutes in his previous appearance Monday. It looks like Burton will be on the outside of the rotation looking in for the foreseeable future as his minutes have trended down over the past five games.
