Mike Trudell

Exum-Burks-Hood-Kanter-Gobert starts the 2nd half for Utah. Same group for LAL. Deficit is 12 after a 5-1 Lakers start.

Aaron Falk

Halftime: Jazz 54, Lakers 38. Burks has 13 points on 6-of-8 shooting. Kobe's up to 15 on 5-of-15.

Mike Trudell

Kobe's 2nd 3-pointer got him up to 12 points, but LAL's defense continues to struggle, with Alec Burks reaching 13 points to put Utah up 20.

Jody Genessy

Oh my goodness. Alec Burks goes behind the back to lose Kobe Bryant and then splits a couple of Laker bigs for a layup while getting fouled.

Tony Jones

Did anyone just see what Burks just did to Kobe Bryant?

Eric Pincus

Kobe hit his 2nd three-pointer of the night - but Burks just took it hard to the basket + foul - Jazz up 49-30 w/ FT coming

Eric Pincus

Alec Burks looks like he's primed for a big season for the Jazz

Tony Jones

Burks and Hayward look dynamic together on the wings

Aaron Falk

End of 1: Jazz 32, Lakers 20. Hayward has 8p/3a/2r to lead Utah. Burks w/ 6p/3r. Kobe has six points on 2-of-7 shooting.

Aaron Falk

Burks blows by Boozer and finishes the reverse layup. He has six points in his return. Jazz up 16-11.

Jody Genessy

Gordon Hayward waited too long to dish off to Alec Burks on that 2-on-1 fast break. Jazz are off and running tonight.

Tony Jones

Alec Burks reminds me of a young Ron Harper in the open floor. Not Bulls/Lakers Harper. Cleveland Cavs Harper

Jody Genessy

I like how Alec Burks got the ball in the open court and just attacked Kobe Bryant on that fast break.

Jody Genessy

ICYMI, the Jazz are starting Dante Exum, Alec Burks, Gordon Hayward, Enes Kanter and Derrick Favors. Trey Burke is getting a rest.

Mike Trudell

Dante Exum is listed as a starter for Utah tonight, along with Alec Burks (who missed last game vs. LAL), Hayward, Favors and Kanter.

Aaron Falk

Alec Burks will indeed play tonight, Snyder says. Has missed three straight games with a shoulder injury.

Aaron Falk

Shootaround update on Alec Burks. “It’s good to have him back on the court," Quin Snyder says. sltrib.com/sltrib/blogsja…

Aaron Falk

Alec Burks had an ice wrap on his shoulder after shootaround, but the Jazz guard says he's good to go tonight against the Lakers.

Jonathan Rinehart

Alec Burks (L shoulder contusion) will be game-time decision, Trevor Booker (sprained R ankle) doubtful for tomorrow’s game at the Lakers

Aaron Falk

Per Jazz JR, Alec Burks will be a game-time decision tomorrow and Trevor Booker is listed as doubtful to play.

Jody Genessy

Alec Burks (left shoulder contusion) might play Sunday. Trevor Booker (sprained right ankle) is doubtful vs. Lakers.

Tony Jones

No Alec Burks again tonight. Rodney Hood, COME ON DOWN

Jody Genessy

Jazz are now calling Alec Burks' injury a left shoulder contusion.

Aaron Falk

Last night, Snyder said the Jazz were "erring on the side of caution" with Burks since it's the preseason.

Aaron Falk

Alec Burks won't play tonight against the Clippers. Bruised left shoulder will have kept him out of three straight.

Jody Genessy

Alec Burks (shoulder) won't play tonight against the Clippers.

Jody Genessy

Rodney Hood and Ian Clark are getting early minutes with injured Alec Burks sidelined.

Jody Genessy

Jazz will "err on the side of caution" w/ Alec Burks (shoulder). Snyder: "It just doesn’t make sense to put him out there if he’s not 100%."

Aaron Falk

Snyder says Jazz erring on the side of caution w/ Burks: "It just doesn’t make sense right now to put him out there if he’s not 100%.”

Tony Jones

No Alec Burks tonight, so Rodney Hood will get his second straight start

Jody Genessy

Jazz starters vs Lakers: Trey Burke, Rodney Hood, Gordon Hayward, Enes Kanter, Derrick Favors. No Alec Burks (shoulder) tonight. 8 pm, NBATV

Aaron Falk

Jazz guard Alec Burks is still dealing with that bruised left shoulder, so he won't play tonight either.

David Locke

Expecting Rodney Hood will start again for the Jazz in place of Alec Burks

David Locke
