Trey Burke (MCL sprain) says his knee is no longer swelling and that his pain is subsiding, and he hopes to be able to return by Sunday.
While Burke wants to be back by the end of New York's current three-game road trip, it's not looking all that likely. He's been able to cut without pain and is slated to start taking contact in the "next couple days." Burke's return is only going to cloud the point guard situation in New York even further, and given how frequently the rotation changes it's a situation that should be avoided in 12-team leagues.
