Conley will miss Game 2 Thursday at Vivint Arena due to the mild hamstring strain that has kept him off the floor since the second quarter of the series-clinching win over Memphis.
Utah was able to pull out a 112-109 victory over Los Angeles without Conley in Game 1 Tuesday.
Hamstring injuries in both legs caused Conley to miss multiple games during the regular season.
