Jazz’s Mike Conley questionable to face Grizzlies on Saturday
Conley suffered a hamstring injury on Monday versus the Philadelphia 76ers and was forced to leave the game. He didn’t play on Wednesday against the Los Angeles Lakers — a game the Jazz lost at home.
Mike Conley is listed as questionable for tomorrow’s game against Memphis. Ja Morant is still out.

The Jazz are 12-10 on the season. They are in the sixth spot in the Western Conference standings.
In his first season with the Jazz, Conley is averaging 13.9 points, 3.5 rebounds and 4.6 assists in 21 games. The lefty is shooting just 36.9 percent from the field, 37.4 percent from beyond the arc and 79.5 percent from the free-throw line.
The Jazz need two things from Conley: One, he has to get healthy. And two, the guard has to start playing better if Utah wants to climb up in the West standings. Conley is too smart of a player to shoot this poorly from the floor. The Jazz need the Mike Conley who put up 21.1 points per game last season with the Grizzlies.
Utah is currently on a three-game losing streak. If Conley doesn’t play on Saturday, the Jazz will likely start Jeff Green again alongside Donovan Mitchell, Rudy Gobert, Joe Ingles and Bojan Bogdanovic.
