Utah Jazz point guard Mike Conley was ruled out of Monday’s Western Conference Game 4 in Los Angeles against the Clippers as he continues to recover from a mild right hamstring strain.

The Jazz have a 2-1 lead in the series.

Conley has yet to play in the series. He sustained the injury in Game 5 of Utah’s first-round playoff series against the Memphis Grizzlies and hasn’t played since.

The 33-year-old 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. The Clippers won Game 3 on their home court Saturday, 132-106.
