Salt Lake City, UT – Utah Jazz rookie Trey Burke fractured his right index finger on Saturday night in a 106-74 loss to the LA Clippers.
Burke got injured midway through the first quarter when his hand got tangled with Clippers' all-star Chris Paul.
The Michigan product was drafted ninth by Minnesota and traded to Utah on draft night. Burke will be re-evaluated on Monday to determine if surgery is necessary.
John Lucas III and Alec Burks are candidates to start in Burke's absence.
