Hood started and picked up 28 minutes, notching 17 points, three triples and a steal while Burks came off the bench to produce 14 points (3-of-11 from the field, 7-of-8 from the line), seven rebounds, four assists, two steals and a triple in 25 minutes of his own. The injury to Donovan Mitchell helped clear things up for both guys tonight but it’s a tight squeeze to get all three the minutes they deserve. It looks like the Jazz will give Burks the short end of the stick rather than run with a hot hand approach, which actually removes a ton of headache potential here. He’s worth holding for a week or so to see if that changes but owners should start looking for contingency plans once Burks returns to the rotation’s fringes.
