Utah Jazz rookie point guard Trey Burke will start his first NBA game Sunday against the Oklahoma City Thunder, reports the Deseret News' Jody Genessy.

Burke missed the first 12 games of the season while recovering from surgery that repaired a broken finger, but he has come off the bench in his two games back. Playing behind John Lucas III, who will now come off the bench, Burke scored 11 points in 12 minutes in his debut. He then produced five points, five rebounds and three assists in his second NBA game.
