SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Utah Jazz will once again be without Mike Conley when they face the Los Angeles Clippers in game five.

The Jazz had listed Conley as questionable on Tuesday but ruled him out this morning after the team’s shootaround.

Conley has missed each game in the series so far after re-aggravating his hamstring injury in game five against the Memphis Grizzlies on June 2.

The veteran originally suffered the injury in February and has since reaggravated the injury twice in the last three months. Conley missed six games in February, then missed an additional nine games in late April and early May.

Joe Ingles has started in Conley’s place and done a more than adequate job. The guard is averaging 16.3 points, 4.0 assists, and 3.5 rebounds while shooting 54 percent from the floor and 50 percent from the three-point line.

“We’ll be excited to get him back,” guard Donovan Mitchell said of Conley’s absence. “But in the time being, while we’re going, we’ve got to understand that we have a job to do and we’ve got to go out there and fulfill it.”

The Clippers are also expected to be shorthanded when they take the floor tonight. Superstar Kawhi Leonard injured his right knee in a collision with Ingles late in the Clippers game four win.

Though the Clippers evened the series at two games apiece, this is a growing fear that Leonard may miss the remainder of the series against the Jazz with the knee injury.

The Jazz and Clippers will tip-off tonight at 8 pm MT. The game will be broadcast on TNT.
