Top Alec Burks News

  • Knicks' Alec Burks: Steps up off bench in Game 7

    Burks tallied 26 points (8-13 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 8-8 FT), three rebounds and two assists over 27 minutes in Sunday's 130-109 loss to Indiana in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals.

    Burks provided New York with strong play off the bench in the winner-take-all contest, leading all bench players in Sunday's game in scoring while ending as one of two Knicks with 25 or more points in the season-ending loss. Burks, who didn't appear in the postseason prior to the series against the Pacers, set a playoff high in scoring while tallying 15 or more points in three of his final four games.

  • Knicks' Alec Burks: Drops team-high 20 points

    Burks contributed 20 points (5-11 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 8-10 FT), five rebounds and two assists in 23 minutes during Sunday's 121-89 loss to the Pacers in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals.

    With the Pacers jumping out to a huge lead and Jalen Brunson looking less than 100 percent, Burks saw extended playing time and made the most of his opportunity. We know Burks can put up points in a hurry when afforded meaningful playing time. However, with that said, New York fans will be hoping this is not the case in Game 5 on Tuesday, given his outbursts tend to come when the Knicks are on the wrong end of the blowout.

  • Knicks' Alec Burks: Cracks rotation Wednesday

    Burks closed Wednesday's 130-121 victory over the Pacers in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals with zero points (0-1 FG) in one minute.

    Burks dusted himself off Wednesday, leaving the bench for the first time this postseason. Jalen Brunson was forced to the locker room during the second quarter, affording one minute of playing time to Burks. Given Brunson was able to return to the game, it is unlikely we see Burks again anytime soon.

  • Knicks' Alec Burks: Handles light role in return

    Burks (shoulder) tallied five points (2-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt), two rebounds and one assist in 12 minutes Sunday in the Knicks' 113-112 win over the Thunder.

    Burks was back in action after a three-game absence due to a sprained shoulder but wasn't able to make much of an impression during his time on the court. He'll likely hold down a minor role in New York's rotation in the short term, but he could see his playing time disappear entirely once the team gets OG Anunoby (elbow) and Julius Randle (shoulder) back from injury.

  • Knicks' Alec Burks: Will be available Sunday

    Burks (shoulder) is available for Sunday's game against the Thunder, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.

    As expected, Burks has been upgraded from probable to available and will suit up following a three-game absence. Thus far in March (10 appearances), Burks has averaged 7.1 points and 1.8 rebounds in 12.4 minutes per game.

  • Knicks' Alec Burks: Probable to face OKC

    Burks (shoulder) is probable for Sunday's game against the Thunder.

    Burks seems likely to return to the court after a three-game absence. If available, the veteran sharpshooter should provide minutes off the bench, but he's not expected to deliver tons of fantasy value.

  • Knicks' Alec Burks: Won't play Friday

    Burks (shoulder) won't play Friday against the Spurs.

    Burks will miss his third straight game Friday, but he's said to be day-to-day. His next chance to play will come Sunday against the Thunder.

  • Knicks' Alec Burks: Questionable for Friday

    Burks (shoulder) is questionable to play Friday against the Spurs.

    Burks could be in line to miss a third straight game with a shoulder sprain, but even if he's available, his presence won't alter many fantasy lineups. The veteran guard is logging just 12.4 minutes per game since the beginning of March.

  • Knicks' Alec Burks: Questionable for Wednesday

    Burks (shoulder) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Raptors.

    Burks missed Monday's game against the Pistons due to a right shoulder sprain, and it's unclear whether he'll be available Wednesday. If he remains out, Bojan Bogdanovic could see a few more minutes than usual.

  • Knicks' Alec Burks: Listed as questionable

    Burks is questionable for Monday's game against Detroit with a sprained right shoulder.

    This sounds like a day-to-day issue for Burks given the questionable tag. He's played a very limited role in March, averaging just 12.4 minutes per game.

  • Knicks' Alec Burks: Goes for 18 points off bench

    Burks amassed 18 points (5-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 5-7 FT), five rebounds, one assist and two steals in 21 minutes during Thursday's 113-100 loss to the Nuggets.

    Burks is settled as a bench option in the Knicks' offensive scheme, and that alone is enough reason for fantasy managers to be wary about his upside, as his role is extremely inconsistent. He has scored in double digits in two of his last three appearances, but on the same note, he's achieved that feat just three times since the All-Star break. He's averaging 6.7 points per game while shooting 28.3 percent from deep in that span, so Burks should be better left on the waiver wire in most leagues.

  • Knicks' Alec Burks: Struggles to find shot

    Burks ended Monday's 119-112 victory over Golden State with five points (1-5 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), one rebound and one assist across 14 minutes.

    Since being traded to the Knicks on Feb. 8, Burks has struggled to find his footing, averaging 7.3 points in 14.4 minutes on 31.5 percent shooting. Before the trade, Burks averaged 12.6 points in 20.9 minutes on a more respectable 39.4 percent from the field with Detroit. The change of scenery has not bode well for the 32-year-old. He should not be expected to provide much fantasy value behind Miles McBride, who has flourished the past month in 29.0 minutes per game.

  • Knicks' Alec Burks: Rough night in loss

    Burks totaled two points (1-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt), two rebounds, one assist and one block over 16 minutes during Tuesday's 115-92 loss to the Pelicans.

    Burks had just two points in the loss, offering absolutely nothing in terms of fantasy value. Despite the Knicks continuing to deal with injuries to multiple key pieces, Burks has been unable to make the most of the situation. He should still be viewed as a possible points streamer, but as we saw Tuesday, even that might be a stretch right now.

  • Knicks' Alec Burks: Retreats to bench Thursday

    Burks isn't starting Thursday's game against the 76ers.

    Burks started the Knicks' final game before the All-Star break but will retreat to the bench Thursday since Donte DiVincenzo (hamstring) and Bojan Bogdanovic (calf) are back in action. Burks has averaged 13.6 points and 3.0 rebounds in 21.6 minutes per game over his last five appearances off the bench.
