Yes, you read that correctly. Tony Jones reported on Twitter:
Alec Burks is expected to make his season-debut on Monday night league sources tell the SL Tribune. He will be under a minutes restriction— Tony Jones (@tribjazz) January 2, 2017
I’m not really sure who this Alec Burks guy is, I’m guessing he’s on the halftime show dunk squad? Maybe we were just let in on the true identity of the Jazz Bear? Regardless, I’m still not entirely sure Alec Burks even exists.
All joking aside, we are finally starting to see some good juju. I know we’ll all have our eyes peeled during the game for this unicorn sighting. There is always a chance that Burks may not come back in this game, but even so, this news tells us how close he is to returning.
Here’s to hoping George Hill and Dante Exum aren’t far behind Alec Burks in returning to the floor.
