Mike Conley and Donovan Mitchell will play in Game 6 of the Utah Jazz’s Western Conference semifinal series against the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday night.

Conley (right hamstring) and Mitchell (right ankle) were both listed as questionable on Thursday’s injury report. Then the Jazz announced that the two would go through their pregame warmups before their availability to play would be determined.

Shortly before tipoff, both Conley and Mitchell were upgraded, with the Jazz announcing both would be available to play in Game 6.

Friday marks the series debut for Conley, who suffered a hamstring strain in Game 5 of the Jazz’s first-round series against the Memphis Grizzlies.

Mitchell has been playing through the pain of a not fully healed right ankle sprain since Game 2 of the first round.

Heading into a Game 6, the Jazz trail the Clippers 3-2 in the best-of-seven series.
