News: Burks (shoulder) scored a team-high 21 points with six rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 29 minutes Sunday. Impact: The highlight of the game was Burks crossing over Kobe Bryant in embarrassing fashion, and it seems that Burks should be considered healthy going forward.(RotoWire, )

News: Burks (shoulder) will be available for Sunday's preseason game against the Lakers, the Salt Lake Tribune reports. Impact: Burks has been unable to fully participate in training camp with a shoulder injury that he can't shake, but Sunday's game against the Lakers should be a good determinant for just how serious the injury is. Regardless, Burks will be the starting shooting guard for the Jazz this season and is a steal in the later rounds of standard league drafts.(RotoWire, )

News: Burks (shoulder) will not play in Friday's preseason game against the Clippers. Impact: The Jazz will continue to err on the side of caution with Burks and his shoulder contusion. With the ushering in of the 2014-15 season, the 23-year-old stands to see an increased role in new coach Quin Snyder's rotation. Most notably, he's on track to be in the starting lineup and has proven that he's an offensive threat when given enough time on the court. Since Utah's regular season doesn't start until Oct. 29 against Houston, Burks has plenty of time to shake off his minor shoulder injury.(RotoWire, )

News: Burks (shoulder) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Lakers. Impact: Burks, who has a bruised shoulder, was a partial participant in Thursday's practice and considered a game-time call heading into Thursday's matchup. He'll continue to sit out, while rookie Rodney Hood likely gets another start.(RotoWire, )

News: Burks (shoulder) is considered a game-time decision to play Thursday against the Lakers, the Salt Lake Tribune reports. Impact: Burks missed Monday's game against the Clippers due to a bruised left shoulder, which limited him to a partial participant at Tuesday's practice. Nonetheless, it appears Burks at least has a chance of suiting up Thursday, indicating his shoulder issue isn't expected to linger for long.(RotoWire, )

News: Burks (shoulder) was a partial participant in Tuesday's practice, Jody Genessy of the Deseret News reports. Impact: Burks is nursing a bruised shoulder, and his status for Thursday's preseason game looks to be up in the air. Whether or not he's able to go through a full practice will likely be the determining factor.(RotoWire, )

News: Burks will miss Monday's preseason contest against the Clippers due to a bruised left shoulder. Impact: There's no word on the severity of the injury, but with two days until the Jazz's next exhibition Thursday, Burks will have a week between showings, if he takes the court, of course. In two games to date, both versus the Blazers, he showed well, averaging 16 points (on 50 percent shooting), three steals, 2.5 rebounds, and 1.5 assists in 33.5 minutes. His lack of a three-point attempt to date is curious, but perhaps he's making attempts to translate offseason work into action against NBA-level competition.(RotoWire, )
