On December 2, 2019, Conley suffered a hamstring injury against the Philadelphia 76ers. The injury caused him to miss five games.
On December 17, 2019, the point guard returned to Utah’s lineup against the Orlando Magic. Conley played 19 minutes before leaving the game after he reaggravated the injury.
The Jazz own a 15-4 record in games without Conley on the court this season.
A month later, he returned to the court when the Jazz hosted the Sacramento Kings on January 18.
In the six games since returning from the hamstring injury, Conley has averaged 8.8 points, 1.7 rebounds, and 2.0 assists in 19.5 minutes per game. He’s shot 44.7 percent overall and 19.0 percent from three-point range during January.
The @UtahJazz aren’t playing Mike Conley on the second night of a b2b, which should give you some sense still of where they think he is in his return to 100%.
