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 four-day quarantine period before joining the Jazz for their playoff series against Denver.
Conley is set to miss Game 2 on Wednesday but could be back on the court for Game 3 on Friday depending upon testing. He returned to the NBA campus Monday night.
The league completed its review and in accordance with the NBA’s COVID-19 policies, Conley’s four-day quarantine is expected to end Friday.
The 32-year-old Conley announced the birth of his son, Elijah Michael Conley, on social media late Sunday.

In the words of our oldest son , “Welcome to the world Lightning Thunder Michael Alex Conley”! 😂 We settled on Elijah Michael Conley instead.. close enough though.
