SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah Jazz guard Mike Conley is expected to play on Saturday night against the Sacramento Kings at Vivint Smart Home Arena.

According to Stadium NBA Insider Shams Charania, Conley will come off the bench and be placed on a minutes restriction.

Conley missed the past 14 games with a hamstring injury. He missed five games from December 4 to December 13 before returning for one game, but he re-aggravated the hamstring injury and missed the 13 game stretch, where the Jazz went 12-2. During both stretches where Conley missed 19 games, Utah went 15-4.

In 22 games played this season, Conley has averaged 13.6 points, 3.3 rebounds and 4.6 assists per game. He is shooting 36 percent from the field and the three point line.

Donovan Mitchell has started at point guard in place of Conley, which allowed the Jazz to start Joe Ingles. When Conley returns to the starting lineup, head coach Quin Snyder will have a decision to make as to who he brings off the bench, Ingles or Royce O’Neale.
