G - DAL
Trey Burke stuffed the statsheet on Wednesday with 16 points (7-11 FG, 0-1 3PT, 2-4 FT), three rebounds, two assists, two steals, and one block in a Game 2 win against the Clippers.
Burke was pulled from the Game 1 matchup with a sprained ankle and his status for Wednesday was up in the air. He was able to take the court and ended up with his third best scoring performance since entering the bubble while logging a stat in ever category. He should be ready for Friday's Game 3 matchup.
Mavericks G Trey Burke (ankle) is available to play in Game 2 against the Clippers on Wednesday.
Burke sprained his ankle after playing 20 minutes in a Game 1 loss to the Clippers. The injury was not severe enough to keep him sidelined for long, but he's not a practical option in DFS for tonight's contest.
Trey Burke got the start at point guard and provided 12 points (4-9 FG, 2-2 FT) to go along with nine assists, four rebounds, one steal, one block, two three's, and two turnovers across 31 minutes in a 134-131 loss to Portland.
Burke earned his first start of the season and made the most of it, almost notching a double-double in 31 minutes. He played well in the absence of Seth Curry, and with the Mavericks firmly entrenched as the 7-seed in the West, the Mavericks starters may get a rest day in their final game. If this happens, it'll leave the door open for Burke to get more minutes on Thursday versus the Suns. The game is a must-win for Phoenix, so this has the potential for a high-scoring and favorable game script. DFS players should keep an eye on Burke as a potential cheap guard play in GPP tournaments.
Mavs guard Trey Burke returned to the second unit on Thursday, as the Mavs went with a big lineup against the Clippers featuring both Boban Marjanovich and Kristaps Porzingis without Seth Curry. Burke shot poorly (5-15 FG, 0-7 3pt, 1-1 FT) yet still led the bench in scoring with 11 points while contributing four rebounds and four assists in 31 minutes of playing time.
Burke continues to be given big minutes in Curry's absence but his shot simply wasn't falling tonight. Burke isn't a viable fantasy option in most leagues but keep his name in mind as a sneaky dart-throw in DFS if Curry continues to miss games.
The Mavericks have announced that G Trey Burke will enter into the starting lineup on Tuesday vs. Sacramento.
Recall Burke dropped 31 against the Rockets in the team’s first game in the Bubble. He’s capable of putting up some points and three balls, and he’s priced at just $3,600 on DraftKings. He could provide some late salary relief to your DFS lineups.
