There are three scoring periods left until default H2H playoffs commence. I hope your teams are surging and not slippin’. ***** A few stream-of-consciousness thoughts on trades this week (not all of them, *cough* Malachi…

Trey Burke is not listed on the injury report for Saturday’s game vs. the Grizzlies.
Burke missed Wednesday’s game to an illness but it looks like he’s ready to go for Saturday. When Luka Doncic is healthy and playing, it’s difficult to count on Burke game-to-game despite his random good games.

Trey Burke has been ruled out of Wednesday's game against the Pacers with an illness.
He was questionable prior to this development, so there's little surprise here. With Burke sitting out, Devin Harris should get all the backup PG minutes he can handle.

Trey Burke (illness) is now questionable to face the Pacers on Wednesday.
Burke has had a few big games for the Mavs, though he's really a pure roll of the dice unless Luka Doncic is out. If Burke is unable to play tonight it will lead to more work for Jalen Brunson and Devin Harris, though as long as Doncic is in the lineup, the Mavs' depth guards are off limits in fantasy.

Trey Burke scored 20 points off the bench in Saturday's loss to the Jazz, hitting 8-of-15 shots (including a three) with seven rebounds and three assists in 23 minutes.
Whether you want to look at the revenge angle or the fact that Luka Doncic (ankle) did not play, we simply need to see Burke be productive again to get an add recommendation in 12-14 team formats. If things go well, he suddenly gets workload on a team not playing for a whole lot.
February 22, 2019, 6:58 pmLuka Doncic - G/F - Dallas Mavericks
Luka Doncic (sore right ankle) will not play on Friday vs. the Nuggets.
Doncic’s minor injuries have piled up enough to force him to sit this one. Doncic is day-to-day and hopefully he’ll be fine after a day or two or rest. Jalen Brunson and Trey Burke will assume the point guard duties for as long as Doncic is out.

Luka Doncic (sore right ankle) is listed as questionable for Friday’s game vs. the Nuggets.
Doncic has been a little banged up lately as he assumes the reins for the Mavs. If he can’t go, look for Jalen Brunson and Trey Burke to assume most of the ball-handling duties.
February 13, 2019, 11:44 pmTrey Burke - G - Dallas Mavericks
After having an 18-5-5 line and a solid follow-up performance, Trey Burke played just six minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Heat.
He scored zero points on 0-of-3 shooting in his six minutes, but added two steals and one assist to the box score. He can be left on the wire.
February 10, 2019, 5:50 pmTrey Burke - G - Dallas Mavericks
Trey Burke finished Sunday's win with eight points, two triples and a steal in 17 minutes of action.
Hopefully you didn't drop anything of consequence for Burke after his big 18-5-5 game on Friday. He'll be in the rotation but consistency figures to be an issue here, so Burke is just a deep-league option if you need points. Jalen Brunson started again and had five points, seven assists, a steal, a block and a triple in 14 minutes.
February 8, 2019, 11:33 pmTrey Burke - G - Dallas Mavericks
Trey Burke fared much better in his second game as a Mav on Friday and was impressive in 27 minutes off the bench with 18 points (5-of-9 shooting), five rebounds, five assists, three triples and two steals.
Burke is worth picking up on the strength of this performance. Also, Luka Doncic is a bit banged up lately, dealing with a sore left hand and a right hip contusion, making Burke a viable handcuff flier. Jalen Brunson, who started alongside Doncic, was not much of a factor with five points, three rebounds, three assists and a 3-pointer.
February 7, 2019, 12:17 amTrey Burke - G - Dallas Mavericks
Trey Burke was a little more than an afterthought in Wednesday's win over the Hornets with him having just a rebound and an assist to his name in his four minutes on the floor.
Jalen Brunson logged 30 minutes and produced eight points (4-of-11 shooting), seven rebounds, five dimes and two steals. Burke is a drop right now as he does not fit in the Mavs' future plans.
February 1, 2019, 5:01 pmTim Hardaway Jr. - G - Dallas Mavericks
Tim Hardaway Jr., Courtney Lee, Trey Burke and Kristaps Porzingis will not be with the Mavs on Saturday to face the Cavs.
All four new Mavs were scheduled to undergo physicals on Friday but there has been no word on the results and thus will not be playing on Saturday. Dallas is extremely short handed so Dwight Powell, Maxi Kleber and Jalen Brunson are DFS guys to look at.

Trey Burke is officially a member of the Mavs.
Burke was reportedly included in Thursday's big trade, at least by some outlets, and now we can safely declare him the newest addition to the Dallas roster. As we said earlier, Burke is looking at a highly diminished role with the Mavs. He might play the backup role if Luka Doncic doesn't make the full-time move to point guard but either way it's unlikely that Burke can leapfrog Jalen Brunson for minutes. He's only a hold in leagues with 20 teams or more right now.

Trey Burke has reportedly been traded to the Mavs.
We'll hold off on declaring it as fact for the time being, as Burke hasn't appeared in every major report. He's looking at diminished, and potentially non-existent, fantasy value either way. The Knicks just acquired their new point guard while the Mavs would surely prioritize opportunities for Luka Doncic and Jalen Brunson over an impending UFA. Burke is a drop in all but the deepest of leagues, though he may be able to get minutes in the teens depending on how Rick Carlisle shuffles things around.
January 28, 2019, 9:19 pmTrey Burke - G - New York Knicks
Trey Burke started on Monday and scored nine points on 4-of-11 shooting with a 3-pointer, two rebounds, three assists and a block.
Burke slotted in as a starter but didn't do much with it. He's still a solid streaming option as Frank Ntilikina and Emmanuel Mudiay are both shelved but don't be afraid to move on if he drops another dud as he's only a short-term option anyways.
