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.
This isn't exactly breaking news, but Burton has totaled double-digit minutes in two consecutive games, playing 12 minutes against the Knicks last week and 10 minutes in Saturday's win over Phoenix. Burton will have a difficult time earning any sort of consistent spot in the rotation, but with Terrance Ferguson (personal) and Andre Roberson (knee) out -- and Alex Abrines (illness) questionable -- Monday, Burton could again see some deep bench minutes. Once that trio is healthy, however, Burton will likely sink back into a reduced role.
Burton totaled 16 points (6-11 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, three steals, and one block in 24 minutes during Tuesday's 119-115 preseason victory over the Bucks.
Burton played well off the bench in Tuesday's overtime victory, finishing with 16 points to go with a combined four defensive stats. After being named MVP of the Korean league last season, Burton signed a two-way deal with the Thunder prior to this year's summer league. Night's like this are going to be few and far between for Burton and his fantasy value is basically non-existent at this stage.
