Alec Burks Utah’s Most Important Player?
The Jazz are in desperate need of a point guard, but their options are limited. With a full roster of 15 players, they can’t easily add a temporary replacement while Mo Williams and Earl Watson recover from their injuries.
Which is to say Alec Burks suddenly may be the Jazz’s most important player.
The second-year combo guard has been forced into an enhanced role in the last month, and with Watson’s exit due to bone bruising and a stress fracture in his right leg essentially becomes the Jazz’s backup point guard.
