Back on October 14, we found out that Utah Jazz rookie point guard Trey Burke had a broken finger on his shooting hand and was going to require surgery that could put him out for upwards of three months. Considering the Jazz are in a rebuilding mode and partially banking on Burke having a Damian Lillard-type of rookie season, they didn't have a ton of options at point guard left that would give you a lot of confidence.

The Jazz were left with John Lucas III, Ian Clark and the recently re-signed Jamaal Tinsley to fill those point guard duties before their rookie makes his debut. Although nothing is official right now, it looks like Lucas will get the nod as the starting point guard Wednesday night for the season opener. His name was on a game notes sheet that was handed out by Jazz PR, according to Steve Luhm of the Salt Lake Tribune.
