Utah Jazz point guard Mike Conley has been officially ruled out of the team’s Saturday matchup against the Los Angeles Clippers in Game 3 of their Western Conference semifinal series.
Conley suffered a mild right hamstring strain in the first quarter of the Jazz’s closeout victory over the Memphis Grizzlies in the first round. He was ruled out from a return at halftime of that game, and has not played since.
Conley has been officially “questionable” to play on the team’s injury report ahead of each game thus far against the Clippers, but has subsequently been ruled out in the hours before each game.
He traveled with the team to Los Angeles for Games 3 and 4, which will take place at Staples Center.
The Jazz lead the series 2-0 in spite of Conley’s absence.
