Mike Conley (sore right knee) played 44 minutes during Saturday's overtime loss, posting 20 points on 8-of-19 shooting, three 3-pointers, five rebounds and five assists.
The Jazz rested key players on Friday but it was just a precaution, and nothing suggests Conley's knee soreness will be a lingering problem. Utah doesn't have any remaining back-to-back sets on their schedule, either, which should protect Conley from unnecessary rest. Still, it doesn't hurt to confirm the 32-year-old's status prior to tip-off. Aug 08 7:32 pm (EST)
