Trey Burke Says He’s Out 4-6 Weeks After Finger Surgery

by October 16, 2013

Utah Jazz rookie point guard Trey Burke and his agent don’t appear to be on the same page when it comes to his surgically-repaired index finger. Burke says he’ll miss 4-6 weeks instead of the 8-12 weeks his agent told the media. The Jazz, meanwhile, are considering signing Jamaal Tinsley during Burke’s absence. Per the Salt Lake Tribune: “Utah opens the regular season Oct. 30 against Oklahoma City. With Burke out, the Jazz have talked to veteran point guard Jamaal Tinsley about a return to the team. Tinsley, 35, spent the past two seasons in Utah. He played in 103 games, including 33 starts. ‘There has been mutual interest,’ Raymond Brothers, Tinsley’s agent, said. Said coach Tyrone Corbin: ‘He has some interest, we have some interest. … He’s a guy who knows our system.'”
