Alec Burks (knee) has been working out at the Jazz practice facility. He's been there a lot and it would appear Burks is healthy. Numerous injuries have kept Burks in check for the past few seasons, but he's putting in extra work to get the explosiveness back in his game. He could be competing with Donovan Mitchell for a rotation spot.

According to Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune, Alec Burks will be healthy at training camp for the first time in three years. The Jazz will need to rely on guys like Burks, Rodney Hood, Joe Ingles and Donovan Mitchell to pick up the slack with Gordon Hayward no longer around. Burks has played an average of 33 games over the past three seasons, but he could be a big part of the second unit if his health cooperates. He's only on the radar in very deep leagues and doesn't have great upside in standard leagues.

Alec Burks (knee) is healthy and "should be 100 percent good to go for training camp," according to reporter Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune. Burks was again limited by his balky knee all of last season. He averaged just 6.7 points on 39.9 percent shooting in 15.5 minutes over the 42 games he appeared in. Utah drafted highly-touted Donovan Mitchell with their first-round pick back in June, and Mitchell looked tremendous during summer league action. Burks, even if he's fully healthy, may have a tough time securing consistent minutes behind Mitchell and starter Rodney Hood.

Alec Burks (knee) stated during his exit interview that he'll work on getting his explosion back during the offseason. Burks' season was yet again derailed by injuries this year, and he didn't play a minute during the playoffs after undergoing a PRP treatment to his left knee. Over the past three seasons, Burks has only managed to suit up for a total of 100 games, and simply put, he won't be worth drafting in most leagues next season.

Alec Burks (knee) could be shut down for the remainder of the postseason according to Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune. To be clear, a final decision has not been made yet. Burks is listed as out indefinitely after getting PRP treatment on his left knee in mid-March, but he wasn't expected to see more than a handful of minutes anyways with the Jazz healthy for the most part.
