Trey Burke scored 15 points with one rebound, four assists and two turnovers on 6-of-16 from the field against the Rockets on Wednesday.
He had the Pat Beverley treatment early, but finished strong. Burke missed all of his four attempts from deep tonight and this shouldn't be viewed as a major negative. If you drafted him, his outlook hasn't changed and he will be able to keep Dante Exum at bay this season. Oct 30 - 1:15 AM

Trey Burke (knee) confirmed he's ready for the season opener against the Rockets on Wednesday.

There was just some knee tendinitis and it caused him to miss practice on Tuesday. He'll get Patrick Beverley, so he might be starting off his season slowly. Burke should improve from his rookie season, but his owners have some their expectations somewhat low.

Trey Burke (knee) missed practice on Tuesday due to left patella tendinitis.

He hasn't had any knee issues in his pro career and the injury doesn't sound serious. Burke had a fantastic preseason after a disappointing rookie campaign, and he even couldn't get it going in summer league either. Considering the changed offensive scheme, perhaps Burke turns it around in his sophomore season.
Oct 28 - 3:07 PM

The Jazz picked up the third-year option on Trey Burke.

Despite a letdown in 2013-14, this was an easy call to bring Burke back on his rookie scale deal. He had a nice October and could be worthy of a pick later in fantasy drafts.
Oct 25 - 12:19 PM

Trey Burke made 5-of-14 from the field for 12 points with four rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes against the Suns on Friday.

He was coming in scorching hot from deep, making 16-of-30 (53.3 percent) in his previous seven games. Burke was much better this month and only shot below 30 percent from the field in one game, something he did more than any other player last season. He is one of a handful of players to show major improvement this month and is worth a look later in drafts.
Oct 25 - 10:02 AM

Trey Burke hit 9-of-16 shots and three more 3-pointers for 23 points, three rebounds, five assists and a steal on Tuesday.

He's now hit 16-of-30 3-pointers in the preseason, and has made Dante Exum an afterthought. Once the big-named point guards are off the board, Burke looks like he's primed and ready to go this season.
Oct 21 - 11:00 PM

Trey Burke will be given a precautionary night off on Sunday, allowing Dante Exum to start at PG for the Jazz.

Burke has been terrific this preseason and he's coming off a game with 21 points, five rebounds and six assists, so he's earned a bit of rest. His FG percentage remains a concern but that's not uncommon for PGs, and he has enough upside to warrant a selection in the late rounds.
Oct 19 - 9:50 PM

Trey Burke's excellent preseason continued on Friday against Chris Paul and the Clippers, as he hit 7-of-15 shots for 21 points, five rebounds, six assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

The Jazz took the Clips all the way to the end and Burke was right in the middle of it, as he continues to put distance between he and Dante Exum while also upping his fantasy ceiling into the late-middle rounds. His empty defensive stats hold him back, but this is the player that had Las Vegas setting him as the prohibitive favorite for Rookie of the Year right after he was drafted.
Oct 18 - 2:34 AM

Trey Burke scored 16 points on 6-of-11 shooting with four threes, eight assists and one steal in Monday's 102-89 preseason win over the Clippers.

It was somewhat clear at Summer League that Burke had the starting job all locked up and now there's no contest between he and Dante Exum, who needs more seasoning. His fantasy game suffers from a lack of steals and his stellar 90.3 percent free throw shooting is only fueled by 1.6 attempts per game. If he can become merely average in the former and start getting to the line at a greater clip he has mid-round upside. For now, he's just a safe and intriguing late round target.
Oct 14 - 1:51 AM

Trey Burke was outstanding against the Blazers on Thursday with 22 points, four rebounds, seven assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

He was dreadful at both summer leagues and had a horrible 2013 preseason before a hand injury, so it's a great sign to see him start off 2014 on a high note. He scored 11 points on a 50 effective field goal percentage. We still need to see more out of him to suggest him as anything more than a late-round pick.
Oct 10 - 12:38 AM

Trey Burke hit 4-of-10 shots and two 3-pointers for 11 points, three rebounds, four assists and a steal in Tuesday's win over the Blazers.

Dante Exum came off the bench and played 29 minutes, but hit just 1-of-5 shots for four points, two assists, a steal and a block. These two could end up in a timeshare at some point, but for now, Burke is the player to draft.
Oct 8 - 1:24 AM

Trey Burke is dedicated to improving defensively this season.

"I know that I’m low to the ground," said Burke, whose 6'1" listed height is generous. "I want to be able to be a good defender this season, and I want to be able to fight over screens, and fight over picks. It’s something that you have to have a mindset to do, and I want to be able to get that done." Burke suddenly faces competition for minutes from this summer's No. 5 pick, Dante Exum, an inexperienced 19-year-old who stands 6'6" with impressive athleticism. Fantasy owners shouldn't target Burke as more than a flier pick for 3-pointers and assists.
Oct 5 - 11:26 PM

Trey Burke issued an apology after nude photos of him were leaked on social media.

"Publicly, I want to first and foremost apologize to my family [and] apologize to the Miller family, as well as my teammates," Burke said. "We already talked about it in the locker room. From this day forward, it won’t happen again. They were old pictures. They were meant to be kept private but they weren’t. So from this day forward my actions and my judgments will be much better." Photo scandal aside, Burke will have to improve his play in order hold off rookie Dante Exum. Burke's 2013-14 averages of 12.8 points, 1.6 three-pointers, and 5.7 assists were nothing to write home about, so fantasy owners shouldn't spend more than a late-round draft pick on the second-year player.
Oct 2 - 12:52 PM

Trey Burke will not play on Friday due to an illness.

He had an up-and-down summer league next to Dante Exum. Burke shot just 30.4 percent from the field and he's now put up two horrible shooting performances in a row after making just 24 percent last summer. He'll have to have a big season to keep Exum at bay.
Jul 18 - 7:42 PM

Trey Burke will play for the Jazz during Summer League.

The arrival of Dante Exum in Utah has complicated Burke's fantasy outlook, since the Jazz may not be able to routinely play them together in the backcourt. Burke averaged 12.8 points, 1.6 triples and 5.7 assists as a rookie, but he shot 38.0 percent from the field and only chipped in 0.6 steals per game, resulting in middling fantasy value. We'll be closely monitoring the Jazz throughout the summer and preseason to determine how well Burke and Exum can co-exist.
