Trey Burke was re-evaluated by doctors today and should be ready to go soon. The news was broke by Jody Genessy of the Deseret News.
Trey Burke has been given the green light to do light dribbling and shooting. He still won’t practice but can do more. No timetable.

According to Jody Burke has been cleared to dribble a bit and shoot the basketball but still won’t practice as of now. Burke originally broke his finger on October 12th against the Clippers and had surgery Tuesday October 15th. Tomorrow will be 4 weeks since the surgery and recovery time was projected to be 4-6 weeks on the injury. The Jazz are in desperate need of another threat on the offensive end as well as some help from the point guard position. Tinsley and Lucas III are shooting a combined 23-75 for 30.6% and 9-42 for 21.4%. Burke could not possibly play worse than what Tinsley and Lucas III are doing for the Jazz right now. The faster Burke can get all healed up the better as this team is off to the worst start (0-7) since moving to Utah and are trying to avoid the 0-11 mark as the worst start in franchise history. Let’s hope Trey Burke get’s back soon and can help up the level of point guard play so the Jazz can put more W’s in the win column.
