Utah's veteran guard avoided serious injury or ligament damage after colliding into a screen in the 3rd quarter against Portland on Saturday.

Utah Jazz guard Mike Conley Jr. reportedly will miss the next two weeks after sustaining a knee injury, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania.

The injury occurred early in the third quarter of Utah’s 118-113 win against the Portland Trail Blazers on Saturday. The veteran guard left the game after colliding into a screen and did not return with 10:22 left in the third period.

The Jazz are off to an unexpectedly hot start this season, taking over the No. 1 spot in the Western Conference with last night’s victory in Portland. Conley is averaging 10.2 points, 2.4 rebounds and 7.9 assists with Utah this season.
