SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Mike Conley has rejoined the Utah Jazz inside the NBA bubble. According to a team spokesperson, Conley was in Orlando as of Tuesday morning, though there was no information provided as to when he would be available. The team referred questions to the league offices.
Conley left the NBA bubble on Sunday to be with his wife, Mary Peluso, for the birth of their son. KSL Sports has reached out to the NBA for comment on Conley’s future availability.
The NBA has seen several players travel outside of the Orlando bubble before returning to their teams. New Orleans Pelicans rookie Zion Williamson left the bubble on July 16, returned to his team on July 24, and was cleared to resume play on July 28.
