G - DAL
Trey Burke provided 19 points (8-14 FG, 3-7 3PT) to go along with five assists, two rebounds, and two assists over 28 minutes as the Mavericks lost to the Kings 113-106 on Monday.
This game came out of nowhere for Burke, who hadn't played more than 25 minutes since late January. His 19 points were the most he's scored since January 20 as well. He's really taken a backseat to Jalen Brunson, who took over as the second unit point guard in early February so Burke doesn't provide much value from a fantasy perspective.
Trey Burke put up 13 points (3-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 6-7 FT) with a pair of rebounds and one assist over 17 minutes as the Mavericks fell to the Pelicans 112-103 on Saturday.
Burke was able to get more run than usual as Dallas was missing their two biggest stars, Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis. He was one of five Mavericks to score in the double figures but Dallas lacked firepower without their two best players. They'll both likely be back in Dallas' next game on Monday vs. the Thunder so Burke will return to his limited role.
Trey Burke put up 10 points (4-4 FG, 2-2 3Pt) with two rebounds and one steal over 12 minutes as the Mavericks lost to the Trailblazers 125-119 on Friday.
Burke has done very little over the last 24 games, scoring in the double figures just twice during that span. He put in some solid work on Friday but there's no fantasy value to be had here. It would take a handful of injuries in front of him on the depth chart for Burke to have any relevancy.
Trey Burke finished with nine points (3-6 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) with two assists and one rebound over 17 minutes in the Mavericks 111-97 loss to the 76ers on Thursday.
This was the most points Burke has scored in a month and the most minutes he's logged in the last 12 games. The point guard filled in well back in January when Dallas was shorthanded due to health and safety protocols but with the team back at full strength in the back court, Burke can't carve out much playing time. Jalen Brunson is the reserve guard to keep an eye on in Dallas.
Trey Burke scored six points (3-8 FG, 0-4 3Pt) with three rebounds, two assists, and two steals over 18 minutes in the Mavericks 120-101 loss the Jazz on Friday.
Burke's minutes have decreased over the last three games from 26 to 21 and 18 on Friday vs. Utah. The Mavericks are finally back at full strength so Burke has resumed his typical bench role with the team. Dallas has lost four games in a row and hasn't looked all that great so it's possible coach Rick Carlisle will tweak his lineup a bit, which could be to Burke's benefit. Him and Jalen Brunson have both provided solid production for Dallas during stretches this season and would deserve more playing time if any changes are made.
