The Utah Jazz ruled out guards Mike Conley (hamstring) and Donovan Mitchell (ankle) for their Wednesday home game against the Portland Trail Blazers.

It will be the ninth straight game missed by Conley and 14th consecutive game missed by Mitchell.

The Jazz also announced on Tuesday that Mitchell, who is still recovering from an injury sustained on April 16, will miss the team’s final three regular-season games.

Mitchell is averaging a team-high 26.4 points per game this season, while Conley chips in with 16.4 points per game and six assists per contest.

The Jazz (50-19) were 1 1/2 games ahead of the Suns (48-20) for the top spot in the Western Conference ahead of Phoenix’s road game against the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday.

Following the Portland game, Utah finished with games at Oklahoma City on Friday and at Sacramento on Sunday.

Forward Juwan Morgan (right heel soreness) was also ruled out for Utah’s game against the Trail Blazers.
