LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. Utah guard Mike Conley has returned to Walt Disney World after the birth of his son and will go through a quarantine period before joining the Jazz for their playoff series against Denver.
The Jazz announced he was back at the NBA campus following the team’s practice Tuesday. ESPN reported he arrived in the bubble Monday night.
In accordance with the NBAs COVID-19 policies, Conley is subject to a quarantine of at least four days. He is expected to miss Game 2 on Wednesday but possibly could be back for Game 3 on Friday.
The league is reviewing his situation.
Conley missed Monday’s first-round opener, which Utah lost 135-125 in overtime despite a Jazz playoff-record 57-point performance from Donovan Mitchell.
The 32-year-old Conley announced the birth of his son, Elijah Michael Conley, on social media late Sunday. Conley is averaging 14.4 points and 4.4 assists in his first season with Utah.
He was acquired as part of a deal with Memphis in July 2019.
The sixth-seeded Jazz already are missing Bojan Bogdanovic, who underwent right wrist surgery in May.
