Utah Jazz point guard Mike Conley has re-entered the Orlando Bubble per Adrian Wojnarowski.
Utah’s starting point guard originally left the bubble to be with his wife during the birth of their son, Elijah. Now, he is back in the bubble and going through quarantine so that he can rejoin his team. The Jazz are hopeful that he can play in game three of the first round matchup against the Denver Nuggets.
In game one of this tight knit series, it was clear that Utah was missing their starting point guard. The Jazz loss by 10 in an overtime thriller that saw Donovan Mitchell carry the offensive load, dropping 57 points. If Conley were present, this game could’ve played out way differently.
Adding Conley back to this roster will restore order to the ball movement and create the tempo Utah has used all year to succeed. Winning game two is a must for Utah if they want to avoid the almost unclimbable 0-2 deficit.
