Alec Burks clears protocols, back with Knicks

New York Knicks guard Alec Burks (health and safety protocols) has rejoined the Knicks.

What It Means:

Burks is available for Wednesday's game against the Chicago Bulls, but it's not clear if he is ready to play following a two-week absence. His return should bolster the Knicks' second unit over the final few weeks as they look to move up in the standings. Derrick Rose, Immanuel Quickley, and Reggie Bullock could all be impacted by Burks' return.

Burks is averaging 23.1 FanDuel points per game this season. Per numberFire's NBA Heat Map, the over/under in Wednesday's Knicks-Bulls game (210.0 points) is the lowest total out of the 20 games on the schedule.
