SALT LAKE CITY – Utah Jazz guard Collin Sexton exited the game against the Golden State Warriors in the fourth quarter after suffering an injury.

With 7:37 remaining in the game, Collin Sexton exited the game with a hamstring injury and the Jazz later ruled him out for the rest of the game.

When Sexton left the game, he recorded 17 points and three assists on 4-of-9 shooting from the field, 1-for-3 from downtown, and 8-for-10 at the foul line.

Markkanen, Conley Out

Markkanen was added to the Jazz injury report late Wednesday due to an illness. The team did not offer an update on when the Finnish forward is expected to return to the lineup.

The Jazz star is averaging 22.2 points, 8.5 rebounds, and 2.2 assists.

Conley was also scratched from the lineup despite returning to practice for the Jazz amid a rare three-day break after falling to the Portland Trail Blazers on Saturday night.

The guard suffered a popliteus strain in his left knee in the Jazz win over Portland on November 19 but was listed as questionable by the team ahead of Wednesday night’s game.

“Each day is getting better, today was the first time practicing with contact and stuff,” Conley said Monday after practice. “The last week or so it’s been kind of transitioning from walking, to jogging, to running.”

Throughout Conley’s absence, the Jazz have struggled to close games, suffering losses in five contests that were decided by nine points or fewer.

The Jazz were 0-5 immediately following Conley’s injury but had won two straight games before Saturday’s loss.

Conley was averaging 10.2 points, 2.4 rebounds, 7.9 assists, 0.3 blocks, and 1.2 steals in 29.2 minutes per game for the Jazz before the injury.

Gay, meanwhile, was absent from the Jazz injury report after missing the team’s last 11 games with a sprained finger.

The veteran forward had been a regular off the bench this season averaging 4.5 points and 3.4 rebounds in 15.8 minutes per contest but leads the Jazz in plus-minus at +5.7.

Warriors Without Curry, Green, and Wiggins

The Warriors have struggled mightily on the road this season and will face a tough task in Utah without three starters in the lineup.

Curry (ankle), Green (hip tightness), and Wiggins (right adductor strain) will all sit out against the Jazz as the Warriors begin a stretch of eight games being played in eight different cities.

The Utah Jazz and Golden State Warriors is televised on AT&T SportsNet and can be heard on 97.5 The KSL Sports Zone. It can also be streamed on DirecTV Stream and FuboTV.
