Rookie Trey Burke To Debut Tonight For Jazz

BurkeThe Jazz are 1-11 and appear to be in contention for the worst record in the league this season.

But they’re at least getting a little help, and it’s at the position they’re the weakest. Rookie Trey Burke is set to make his debut on Wednesday against the Pelicans after missing the team’s first 12 games because of a fractured right index finger.

Burke was the Jazz’s top pick in last season’s draft and a major part in the team’s rebuilding process.

He generated a lot of buzz in the preseason for Rookie of the Year contention, but will have a lot of ground to make up to catch Michael Carter-Williams and company.
