There have been durability concerns for Conley of late. He hasn't played more than 70 games in any of the last five seasons.
When healthy, he is a force with the ball in his hands as someone who can stretch the defense with his shooting, penetrate off the bounce and find open teammates when the defense collapses on him.
He averaged 21.1 points and 6.4 assists over 70 appearances in 2018-19 but has struggled some during his first season with the Jazz. Entering play Tuesday, he was averaging 13.9 points and 4.6 assists while shooting a career-worst 36.9 percent from the field.
While Utah will be hard-pressed to replicate Conley's presence on a nightly basis—even with his inconsistency—it does have other candidates to serve in a ball-handling and facilitating role.
Look for Emmanuel Mudiay to see more playing time alongside Donovan Mitchell until the starter returns.
