Utah guard Alec Burks is nearing his first court appearance of the season after having ankle surgery.
Burks returned to practice this week and appears to be nearing a return. While Burks will add some nice depth to the Jazz bench, he will have to battle Joe Ingles for a key backup role. He’s only a watchlist guy until he’s healthy AND an injury occurs to another Jazz backcourt member.
