    Alec Burks finally got some extended run for the Sixers in an overtime win over the Nets on Thursday, playing 30 minutes and scoring 19 points.

    This was the reason to hold on to Burks in deep leagues despite a clear downgrade in his deployment on a deep, confusing rotation. This doesn't mean Burks will get this run every night, but he's too tough to trust in most leagues.

    Alec Burks didn't leave the bench on Sunday despite being available to make his Sixers debut.

    Burks can give the Sixers some scoring punch and additional ball-handling off the bench, but Furkan Korkmaz was cooking and there was no need to mess with a good thing. If you hadn't yet, it's safe to drop Burks in leagues with 16 teams or fewer.

    Alec Burks and Glenn Robinson III are available to make their Sixers' debut on Sunday versus the Bulls.

    Burks figures to offer more value coming off of the bench to add a scoring punch, but it's going to take an injury for either to have standard league value going forward.

    Alec Burks and Glenn Robinson III are not expected to be available to make their Sixers' debut on Sunday versus the Bulls.

    Furkan Korkmaz should continue seeing heavy minutes with both Robinson and Burks out and Josh Richardson working his way back from injury.

    SG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Furkan Korkmaz hit two triples in 28 minutes of action on Thursday night, scoring 12 points on 4-of-12 shooting as the Bucks pulled away from the Sixers 112-101.

    Korkmaz has had some intrigue as a 3-point specialist in very deep leagues due to the absence of Josh Richardson. Shake Milton has gotten some run as well and has been an interesting option, scoring eight points to go with four rebounds and three assists in 24 minutes in this game. It'll be interesting to see what happens to the Sixers' role players not only when Richardson returns, but also when they incorporate newly acquired Glenn Robinson III and Alec Burks into the rotation.

  • Trey Burke
    PG, Philadelphia Sixers

    The Sixers waived Trey Burke on Thursday.

    The Sixers acquired Glen Robinson III and Alec Burks yesterday and had to create two roster spots in order to make room for them. They were able to trade James Ennis III but were forced to waive Burke after being unable to find a trade partner. Burke is not on the fantasy radar but could find himself on another team before the end of the season.

    Alec Burks and Glenn Robinson III have been traded to the Sixers in exchange for three second-round picks on Wednesday.

    Burks' value takes a massive hit with this relocation. He was seeing some good usage thanks to the Warriors being so ravaged by injuries. Now just a depth-filler for Philly, Burks will be relegated to a deep-league value asset ROS.

  • Eric Paschall
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Eric Paschall started on Wednesday and scored 15 points on 6-of-16 shooting with five rebounds, one steal and one block in 33 minutes.

    Paschall double-doubled with 14 points and 10 boards on Monday and got the start tonight with Glenn Robinson III and Alec Burks sitting out amidst trade rumors. Paschall started at small forward next to Draymond Green and Marquese Chriss, so he is worth watching as the trade deadline unfolds. Wait for one more game like this before picking him up in standard leagues though.

    According to Marc Stein of the NY Times, Alec Burks and Glenn Robinson III will sit out of Wednesday's game vs. the Nets in anticipation that one or both get traded before Thursday's trade deadline.

    The Warriors have been established sellers this season as they currently have the worst record in the NBA at 12-39. Continue to monitor the trades that occur over the next day as certain players will lose value while others will gain value depending on where they end up. Both Burks and Robinson will likely see their values diminish if they get moved to a contender as they will have less opportunity.

    D'Angelo Russell (right quad contusion) will play in Wednesday's game vs. the Nets.

    D'Angelo will return to action against his former team after missing their last contest. His return will negatively affect the value of Alec Burks but Burks should still be rostered in standard leagues.

    Alec Burks came off the bench on Monday and scored a game-high 30 points on 9-of-17 shooting to go with three rebounds, two assists, two steals and five 3-pointers.

    Burks has been the best player on the Warriors lately and will definitely be in several trade rumors as the week drags on. He'll have the most value on the Warriors, but could still have some low-end appeal on another squad. This situation as it stands is ripe for him though.

  • D'Angelo Russell
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    D'Angelo Russell (right quad contusion) is listed as out for Monday's game.

    He was considered a game-time decision, but the Warriors have ruled him out. Jordan Poole and Alec Burks should be the next men up.

    D'Angelo Russell (right quad contusion) will be a game-time decision ahead of Monday's game.

    Russell has also been the subject of recent trade rumors, but his owners will have to check back later regarding his status against the Wizards. Expect Alec Burks to see more minutes if Russell cannot play.

    Marc Stein is echoing earlier reports from The Athletic in that Alec Burks and Glenn Robinson III are expected to be moved by the trade deadline.

    Both players have been minute-munchers for a hollowed-out Warriors squad but a trade is the obvious move here. The team will probably take whatever they can get, and a move would basically erase what standard-league appeal that Burks and Robinson had as quasi-leaders on this terrible team. Deep-league GMs will be racing to see which of the remaining Warriors wings — Damion Lee, Ky Bowman, Jacob Evans, et al — will get the biggest boost.

    Anthony Slater of The Athletic names Alec Burks and Glenn Robinson as the two candidates most likely to be traded from the Warriors.

    Burks has been bandied about as a trade candidate pretty much since the season began and Robinson has been able to salvage his career with a solid season for the Warriors. That said, the market for 6th (but ideally 7th) man scorers has dried up after the Jordan Clarkson trade, and Derrick Rose still figures to be a more attractive target for teams seeking to fill that role. It is still somewhat likely that one or both of these players gets traded for a 2nd round pick, though they stand to lose a lot of fantasy value if that were the case. For what it's worth, the piece also mentions D'Angelo Russell as coveted target of the Timberwolves, as has been widely reported, but it still doesn't make sense for the Warriors to move on from their prized free agent acquisition after only half of a lost season.
