Utah Jazz point guard Mike Conley will miss Saturday night’s game against the host Los Angeles Clippers due to his mild right hamstring strain.

Conley also missed Games 1 and 2 of the Western Conference semifinals due to the same injury. The 33-year-old was injured during Game 5 of Utah’s first-round series against the Memphis Grizzlies.

He was sidelined on two occasions with right hamstring injuries during the regular season.

Conley averaged 16.2 points, 6.0 assists and 3.5 rebounds in 51 games (all starts) of Utah’s 72 during the regular season. He was named an All-Star for the first time in his 14-year career.

Utah prevailed 112-109 in the series opener on Tuesday in Salt Lake City and followed up with a 117-111 home victory on Thursday.
