The Utah Jazz will need to rebound from a Game 3 loss without Mike Conley.
The All-Star guard will miss a fourth straight game on Monday when the Jazz take on the Los Angeles Clippers in Game 4 at Staples Center.
Despite traveling with the team, the Utah Jazz’s All-Star guard was ruled out of playing both Games 3 and 4 in Los Angeles because of the right hamstring strain he sustained in Game 5 of the Jazz’s first-round playoff series against the Memphis Grizzlies.
When Conley spoke with reporters following that Game 5, he sounded hopeful about his ability to play when the second round began but has yet to be cleared for a return to the court.
Conley averaged 17.4 points and 8.6 assists while shooting 54.8% from 3-point range in the series against the Grizzlies.
The Jazz head into Game 4 on Monday with a 2-1 series lead over the Clippers.
