Jazz’s Mike Conley Playing in Game 3
Utah Jazz point guard Mike Conley is clearing quarantine soon and will be in the lineup for Game 3 as the Jazz take on the Denver Nuggets, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
Conley left the team, and the Orlando NBA Bubble, on Sunday to be present for the birth of his son, Elijah, back in Columbus, Ohio, but returned to the bubble on Monday night. It was believed that Conley would be able to play for Game 3 of the series.
Utah lost Game 1 in in overtime and routed Denver in Game 2 to even the series at 1 game a piece.
Conley’s return will be a big boost for the Jazz, as he has averaged 18 points and five assists since the NBA restart.
