Utah Jazz veteran star Mike Conley suffered a hamstring injury during Game 5 win over the Memphis Grizzlies. Conley will be reevaluated prior to the start of second round, the team announced Thursday.

Conley, 33, averaged 17.4 points, 8.6 assists and 38 rebounds in five games against Memphis. Utah will face the winner of the Clippers-Mavericks series in the next round.

Conley played just 12 minutes in the series-clincher against the Grizzlies. As the Jazz are waiting to learn their opponent in the Western Conference semifinals, Dallas and LA will face each other on Friday for Game 6 of the series.

In case Conley is not ready for the semifinals, expect Jordan Clarkson to receive more minutes, who had 24 points and five assists in the Game 5 win vs. Memphis.
