Alec Burks News
New York Knicks guard Alec Burks debuted with his new team on Saturday versus the Indiana Pacers. The former Piston came off the bench in this one. Although Jalen Brunson was unequivocally the game's top producer, Burks scored 22 points in just 22 minutes. The Knicks moved on from Immanuel Quickley and Quentin Grimes, so a stable ball handler to support Brunson was desperately a need for New York. Without question, there's a spot for Burks in the rotation. However, fantasy managers shouldn't expect this type of production, at least not consistently, moving forward.
New York Knicks guard Alec Burks will play on Saturday against the Indiana Pacers. It will be the veteran's first game with the Knicks, and it comes after he averaged 12.6 points in 43 games with the Pistons this season. Burks probably won't be a consistent fantasy contributor. However, with Jalen Brunson (ankle) questionable and OG Anunoby (elbow), Isaiah Hartenstein (Achilles), and Julius Randle (shoulder) out, Burks could be more productive for fantasy managers right out of the gate.
Detroit Pistons guard/forward Alec Burks is heading back to the New York Knicks, according to Adrian Wojnarowski. Burks and Bojan Bogdanovic are being sent to New York in return for Evan Fournier, Quentin Grimes, Malachi Flynn, and two second-round picks. Burks played two seasons with the Knicks prior to this deal in 2020-21 and 2021-22. He joined the Pistons via trade and is now right back where he started. Over the last season and a half with Detroit, Burks averaged 12.7 points, 2.9 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 2.1 made threes, and 1.0 turnovers per game. He's not an automatic addition in fantasy leagues right now because the Knicks have a few forwards and guards ahead of him. He could become a solid streaming option, though, while some of their key players are hurt.
Detroit Pistons guard Alec Burks (hamstring) is expected to play on Sunday versus the Denver Nuggets. Burks has slowed down since averaging 15 points per game in October. However, he scored at least 21 points or more in the previous two games leading up to Friday's loss to the Warriors, so there may be something there for fantasy managers willing to risk putting him in the starting lineup.
