This Thanksgiving road trip continues to test Utah Jazz fans gratitude as Mike Conley left the game against Philadelphia 76ers with an apparent hamstring injury. Utah Jazz PR is saying the injury is left hamstring tightness. Mike Conley was 3 of 9 with 7 points, 6 rebounds, and 2 assists before he checked out of the game for good.

As I write this, Quin Snyder is probably going to be pulling his starters soon to waive the white flag on this can’t-burn-the-film Thanksgiving road trip. There’s no word whether this is just a precautionary measure in a game that has already got away from them or if he could miss more time. Jazz fans will remember Ricky Rubio fighting through and losing multiple games to injury the last two seasons. Hopefully, this is nothing like that.
