Alec Burks will not play Wednesday for Knicks
New York Knicks guard Alec Burks is not on the active list for Wednesday's game against the Chicago Bulls.
Burks recently rejoined the team after being out due to the league's health and safety protocols. He participated in shootaround but will wait at least one more game before returning to game action. Burks' eventual return could take playing time away from Derrick Rose, Immanuel Quickley, and/or Reggie Bullock in the Knicks' rotation.
Per numberFire's NBA Heat Map, the Knicks play at the slowest pace out of all 20 teams playing Wednesday and the over/under in the Knicks-Bulls game (209.0 points) is the lowest on tonight's 10-game slate.
