Alec Burks scores one point in loss to Knicks
Alec Burks totaled one point (0-3 FG, 0-3 3PT, 1-1 FT) and one assist in the Pistons’ 118-112 loss to the Knicks.
Burks scored 1.0 point in the Pistons' loss to the Knicks, putting together his worst scoring performance of the season. Even with him playing only 11.0 minutes, his overall production has gradually decreased since the beginning of the season. In Burks' defense, his minutes have been substantially reduced over the past four games, granting others an opportunity in the rotation. However, this has led to an equally substantial decrease in Burks' appeal in most season-long leagues. His situation may not improve with the recently increased activity of teammates Jaden Ivey and Marcus Sasser, which could see Burks finding himself on the wrong side of the team's long-term plans and our player pools. He doesn't warrant serious consideration in any season-long or daily fantasy formats but could find relevance later during the season's "end-game." Burks has a usage rate of 20.8 percent, a plus-minus of -3.5, and is averaging 19.9 minutes, 10.8 points, 2.4 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 0.4 steals, and 0.3 blocks per game while shooting 34.5 percent from the floor and 36.6 percent from beyond the arc.
