2020 Playoffs: First Round | Nuggets vs. Jazz

Mike Conley back in starting lineup for Game 3

The Utah Jazz have point guard Mike Conley back in the mix for Game 3 against the Denver Nuggets on Friday (4 ET, TNT/TNT OT).

Conley is in the starting lineup as Utah looks to grab a 2-1 series edge on the Nuggets. Conley left the NBA campus at Walt Disney World to attend the birth of his son in Columbus, Ohio.

He returned to the NBA campus on Monday and went through a four-day quarantine period before joining the Jazz for the playoff series.

The 32-year-old Conley announced the birth of his son, Elijah Michael Conley, on social media late Sunday. Conley is averaging 14.4 points and 4.4 assists in his first season with Utah.

He was acquired as part of a deal with Memphis in July 2019.
