Conley excelled with the Jazz this season. He averaged 16.2 points and 6 assists per game, making the All-Star team for the first time in his career. 

Prior to the injury, Conley was out to a hot start in the postseason. In his first four games against the Grizzlies, Conley averaged 20 points and 10.3 assists.

Clippers will be without Kawhi Leonard for Game 5

Conley's news comes shortly after it was revealed the Clippers would be without Kawhi Leonard in Game 5 due to a knee injury. The severity of Leonard's injury is unknown, though the team fears Leonard may have an ACL issue.

With Leonard out, the Game 5 odds have shifted heavily in the Jazz's favor. Even without Conley, oddsmakers at BetMGM like the Jazz's chances against a Clippers team with Leonard.
