The All-Star guard will miss Game 1 against the LA Clippers due to a right hamstring strain.

Utah Jazz guard Mike Conley will be sidelined with a right hamstring strain for Game 1 of the team’s Western Conference semifinals series against the LA Clippers, the Jazz announced on Wednesday (PHT).

Conley has been nursing a hamstring strain since February. He reaggravated it and left early in Utah’s series-clinching victory over Memphis. The injury caused him to miss 21 games during the regular season.

The 33-year-old All-Star averaged 16.2 points, 6.0 assists and 3.5 rebounds over 51 games with Utah this season.
