Utah Jazz point guard Mike Conley has been ruled out of Thursday’s Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals against the LA Clippers because of a mild strain of his right hamstring.
Conley, who also missed Utah’s 112-109 victory in Game 1, suffered the injury during the first half of Utah’s series-ending win over the Memphis Grizzlies on June 2.
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 because of tightness in his right hamstring.
Conley averaged 17.4 points and 8.6 assists for the top-seeded Jazz in the first round.
