Trey Kerby

My favorite part of the Chad Ford rerank is that he still kept Jimmer ahead of Alec Burks. reddit.com/r/nba/comments…

David Locke

Find it pretty cool that @Alec Burks parents are here watching the game rooting on the Jazz. Good People

Aaron Falk

With Burks out the rest of the year & Hood out until after the all-star break, Jazz need help on the wing, and Millsap's provided energy.

Jon Santiago

There once was a time when @James Ham & I were bigger fans of Alec Burks than Klay Thompson...

David Locke

This will be Dante Exum 2nd start of the season. Without Favors, Burks and Hood Snyder felt necessary to re-evaluate roles

Tim Chisholm

14-26. They don't impress me. RT @Lazron: @Tim Chisholm @Daoud_S, Gobert, Burke, Kanter & Burks aren't good ? Exum has potential too

Aaron Falk

Alec Burks: "There's a team out there fighting and you can't even put on a jersey. It's tough. It's really tough." sltrib.com/sports/2069766…

Aaron Falk

Alec Burks' shoulder hasn't been 100 percent in years. He thinks he'll finally get back there. sltrib.com/sports/2069766… http://t.co/42MZ0KBTq9

Alec Burks said he hasn't had a fully healthy shoulder since he was in his teens. He first hurt it in college at Colorado.

Jody Genessy

Alec Burks: "I had a really bad shoulder and they fixed it. This will repair everything. I’m going to have a 100 percent shoulder. Finally."

Jody Genessy

Jazz G Alec Burks is in good spirits two weeks after having season-ending shoulder surgery. "I’m feeling good. I’m not in pain." #LALatUTA

Aaron Falk

Chatted with Alec Burks for a minute. Tough for him to miss games, but excited to have a fully healthy shoulder for first time in years.

Aaron Falk

Alec Burks is here, getting in some light one-armed rebounding practice. http://t.co/PzN4jltWn6

Jody Genessy

Coach Snyder walked into the pressroom while I was working on that Alec Burks trailer. I came really close to showing him his video.

Jody Genessy

Alec Burks—ALEC BURKS!—was at Jazz shootaround. I typed his name twice on accident, adding a dramatic effect. So ... vine.co/v/ODdhpgj6npl

Jody Genessy

Jazz have a visitor at shootaround: Alec Burks. Alec Burks. He had season-ending surgery on his shoulder on Dec. 31. http://t.co/om5cjPWyR3

David Locke

Since Alec Burks got hurt Trey Burke has been very good. Take out a crazy historically bad night and he is off the charts

David Locke

David Locke

Jazz will be without Alec Burks, Rodney Hood, Patrick Christopher, Enes Kanter v. Minnesota on Saturday v Wolves who have lost 10 in a row

David Locke

The defensive coverage on Gordon Hayward without Alec Burks and Rodney Hood is going to tilt to his side heavily. Someone has to help

Jody Genessy

Jazz starters: Trey Burke, Patrick Christopher, Gordon Hayward, Enes Kanter, Derrick Favors. No Alec Burks (surgery) or Rodney Hood (heel).

David Locke

Dante Exum playing with Trey and Ian Clark could supplement the minutes as well without Hood and Burks

David Locke

The @Utah Jazz starting 5 of Burke, Burks, Hayward, Kanter and Favors has an offenisve rating of 114 per 100 poss (12th best in NBA)

Aaron Falk

Quin Snyder on Alec burks: we're losing a big piece of what we do. It's not easy but best thing for him to get healthy

Marc Stein

Hearing there are renewed fears in Utah that Alec Burks' latest shoulder issues will shelve him long-term ... and possibly for the season

Even if Alec Burks opts to get shoulder surgery next offseason, a source says he won't be back within two weeks.

Jody Genessy

Alec Burks has struggled with a shoulder issue even before being drafted by the Jazz. He skipped pre-draft workouts in 2011 because of it.

Jody Genessy

Multiple sources have told me that Jazz guard Alec Burks definitely needs surgery on his left shoulder — either now or next offseason.

Aaron Falk

Obviously vastly different reports out there right now regarding Burks' status going forward. All that's official: he's out indefinitely.

Adrian Wojnarowski

After meeting w/ specialists, Utah's Alec Burks won't need shoulder surgery, source tells Yahoo. Undergoing rehab; could return in 2 weeks.
