The Mike Conley experience in Utah takes another not-so-positive turn. After returning to the lineup in yesterday’s games vs. the Magic, Conley experienced tightness in his hamstring during the second half and never returned. It was reported today via Shams Charania and Tony Jones of The Athletic, that Conley will miss multiple games, and possibly multiple weeks.

This really sucks. Even though Conley is having one of the worst seasons of his career so far, he’s been an important piece of offense and leadership on a Jazz team that struggled without him. “Multiple weeks” most likely indicates that Conley is done for the remainder of 2019. But how many weeks will it be? Here’s to hoping it’s as less as possible, and Mike can get back on the floor and get out of his slump.
