Jazz rule PG Conley out for Game 1 vs. Clippers


Utah Jazz point guard Mike Conley did not play in Tuesday’s Western Conference semifinals opener against the LA Clippers due to a mild strain of his right hamstring.

Conley suffered the injury during the first half of the Jazz’s series-ending Game 5 win over the Memphis Grizzlies last Wednesday. He was a limited participant in Monday’s practice before being ruled out of Game 1 Tuesday morning.

“Hopefully, we’ll get him back as quickly as possible,” Jazz coach Quin Snyder said. “But those things are hard to predict.”

Conley, 33, an All-Star for the first time this season, has missed significant time because of injuries to both hamstrings during his two seasons in Utah. He missed six games in February and nine games in late April and May due to tightness in his right hamstring.

Conley averaged 17.4 points and 8.6 assists for the top-seeded Jazz in the first round.
