This has to be a bit of a concern for Utah especially considering that they last played on Wednesday, June 2nd. So despite having five rest days in between games, Conley is still not fit enough to be involved in the series opener.
The first-time All-Star was off to a fine start in the playoffs, averaging 17.4 points, 8.6 assists, and 3.8 rebounds. However, his absence might lead to Donovan Mitchell moving over to the point guard position, with Jordan Clarkson perhaps sliding into the starting lineup.
Utah is a consensus three-point home favorite for Game 1.
