Alec Burks saw 18 minutes of action on Saturday night and responded with 15 points and six rebounds on 4-of-7 from the field and 7-of-8 from the line.
There’s not a ton to be excited about by this singular game, as Burks had received a DNP in three of his last five. The absence of Rodney Hood got him back in the rotation and he’s someone to keep an eye on with Hood appearing more and more likely to be traded at the deadline. Obviously any spots in the rotation will depend on what Utah brings in with any trades, but Burks could become a decent scoring option for deep league players.
