Alec Burks (knee) stated during his exit interview that he'll work on getting his explosion back during the offseason.
Burks' season was yet again derailed by injuries this year, and he didn't play a minute during the playoffs after undergoing a PRP treatment to his left knee. Over the past three seasons, Burks has only managed to suit up for a total of 100 games, and simply put, he won't be worth drafting in most leagues next season. May 9 - 3:29 PM

Date:

Alec Burks (knee) could be shut down for the remainder of the postseason according to Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune.

To be clear, a final decision has not been made yet. Burks is listed as out indefinitely after getting PRP treatment on his left knee in mid-March, but he wasn't expected to see more than a handful of minutes anyways with the Jazz healthy for the most part.
May 1 - 10:23 AM

Alec Burks (knee) remains out for Sunday.

He is out indefinitely with his PRP treatment to his left knee. Burks is not in the rotation and staying healthy has been a tough task for the slashing guard.
Apr 29 - 9:46 PM

Alec Burks (left knee) will not play in Game 5 vs. the Clippers on Tuesday.

He had a PRP treatment to his left knee last week and there's no word of a timetable for his return. The oft-injured guard wasn't a big part of the rotation anyways.
Apr 24 - 8:11 PM

Alec Burks (left knee) will not suit up for Game 4 on Sunday.

He had a PRP treatment to his left knee on Thursday, so at the very least, he figures to miss the remainder of this first-round series. He's a non-factor in the rotation, so his playing status is irrelevant, anyway.
Apr 23 - 3:24 PM

Alec Burks (knee) had a platelet rich plasma (PRP) injection to his left knee on Thursday and he will not play in Game 3 on Friday.

He is basically out indefinitely. Burks has not been in the rotation and didn't really play much this season unless George Hill, Rodney Hood or Gordon Hayward missed time.
Apr 20 - 6:55 PM

Alec Burks (personal) returned to action on Wednesday, posting three points, one rebound and one steal in nine minutes off the bench.

Burks missed one game following the birth of his first child, and his return was welcome news for Utah's depleted backcourt. He's still not worth owning while Dante Exum, Shelvin Mack, Gordon Hayward, Rodney Hood, Joe Johnson and Joe Ingles are all healthy.
Mar 30 - 2:03 AM

Alec Burks (personal) is back with the team and is expected to be available for Wednesday against the Kings.

After being away from the team on Monday to be there for the birth of his daughter, Burks should be in the rotation tonight. He was playing point guard earlier in 2017 and the Jazz could look at him in that spot today. It'll still be tough to trust him in fantasy, especially if Gordon Hayward (quad) is a go.
Mar 29 - 4:17 PM

Alec Burks is not with the team for Monday's game against the Pelicans due to personal reasons.

Burks just doesn't play enough minutes to make much of a difference for most fantasy owners, especially at this juncture of the season. Dante Exum and Joe Ingles will likely see a couple of extra minutes as a result of Burks being inactive.
Mar 27 - 9:10 PM

Alec Burk scored a season-high 21 points against the Thunder on Saturday, adding seven rebounds, two assists and three 3-pointers in 24 minutes.

The Jazz just leaned on their second unit for most of the second half after their first-unit guys were the main reason they trailed by 23 points early in the third. Burks has played well, but he'll be tough to rely on in fantasy when the normal starting five is active. His multiple-position game helps him, though.
Mar 11 - 5:37 PM

Alec Burks shot 3-of-11 from the field on Friday vs. the Nets, finishing with eight points, six rebounds, one steal and two triples.

Even though Joe Johnson (groin) joined Rodney Hood (knee) on the shelf tonight, Burks only played 23 minutes tonight compared to 28 on Wednesday. This was his second straight game shooting 3-of-11 from the field and he's simply not getting enough burn to make a difference in standard leagues.
Mar 4 - 12:42 AM

Alec Burks scored 12 points with three rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 22 minutes against the Mavs on Thursday.

He did have a costly turnover and the Jazz had some major issues in the second unit today. Burks didn't see much run as a point guard, but he did handle the ball and brought it up the floor. He still doesn't have much value even with Rodney Hood (knee) likely out for a couple more games.
Feb 9 - 11:31 PM

Alec Burks played 21 minutes with seven points, one rebound, four assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 21 minutes against the Hawks on Monday.

He actually lost some backup point guard minutes with Dante Exum getting a look there. Burks still did his share of ball-handling with most of his minutes next to Exum today. Still, working in Exum hasn't really led to added minutes for Burks following the Rodney Hood (knee) injury.
Feb 6 - 10:28 PM

Alec Burks matched his season-high 25 minutes against the Bucks on Wednesday with six points, four rebounds, two steals and one 3-pointer.

He did play six minutes in garbage time, scoring five points to finish the game. Burks looks to have the backup point guard job locked up for the time being, but he's still played just 15.0 minutes per game in his last two. If Rodney Hood (knee) does miss time, maybe he can get some combo guard minutes. He's really just a speculative add in 16-team leagues for now.
Feb 2 - 1:03 AM

Alec Burks scored 15 points on 4-of-5 shooting in Saturday's loss to the Grizzlies.

That's a solid line in just 15 minutes. Raul Neto was inactive and Shelvin Mack is a trade candidate, so Burks does have a small path to minutes if he can stay ahead of Dante Exum in the rotation -- Burks saw 10 minutes as a backup PG tonight. He added two rebounds with two triples and zero assists, but also turned the ball over five times. Just keep an eye on him in deeper leagues.
