The Utah Jazz announced that Mike Conley has left the NBA bubble with the reason being the birth of his son which means he will miss at least the first two games against the Denver Nuggets in the first round of the playoffs.

The details about his plans on returning aren’t known yet, however, if he chooses to do so, he must test negative every day he is outside the bubble and then must quarantine for four days upon returning to the bubble. Only after that would he be cleared to return to the court.

Conley, 32, has been averaging 18 points per game on 43% shooting from the field and 37% from the three-point territory in 32 minutes of playing time.
