Mike Conley (left hamstring strain) returned to action for the Jazz on Saturday, seeing 15 minutes of action and producing three points on 1-of-3 shooting (all from deep) with one rebound, three assists and two steals.
It's a good first baby step back for Conley, who will clearly be eased in by the Jazz. He should, in time, eventually make his way back into the starting lineup, which should push Joe Ingles (two points, nine rebounds, 12 assists, 31 minutes) back to a reserve role.

Mike Conley is probable to return from his strained left hamstring and face the Kings on Saturday.
Conley's return has long been anticipated, and he can only go up after a lousy start to his career as part of the Jazz. He has not seen the court since December 17, and his return should hurt Joe Ingles' value to some degree as the two did not coexist well prior to Conely's injury. If he is available Conley is well worth a pickup to see if he can rediscover the early-round value he delivered for so many years in Memphis. He is simply too talented, and the Jazz are far too committed to this experiment to let Conley go on playing this poorly.

Mike Conley will remain out Thursday vs. the Pelicans as he works himself back from a strained left hamstring.
With Conley ruled out, Joe Ingles will continue to have additional ball-handling duties while Emmanuel Mudiay and Jordan Clarkson will continue to see more minutes off the bench. Conley's next opportunity to take the floor will come Saturday vs. the Kings.

Joe Ingles tied a career high on Tuesday with 27 points (10-of-14 FGs) in addition to three rebounds, four assists, a steal and six 3-pointers in 30 minutes in a victory over the Nets.
Ingles was on fire in this game. After a very slow start to the season, he is now among the top-40 over the past month in both 8-cat and 9-cat leagues. Ingles' production should take a slight hit when Mike Conley returns, but he should be worth starting for the rest of the season.

Bojan Bogdanovic played 25 minutes and put up 16 points (5-for-9 shooting), four triples, three rebounds and three assists as the Jazz topped the Hornets on Friday.
Bogdanovic and Joe Ingles (11 points, three triples, three assists and a steal) combined for seven triples in this one as their hot shooting helped propel the Jazz to a comfortable win. Bogdanovic has a safe role as a pure scorer on this team and can fill the same role for your fantasy squads.

Joe Ingles throttled things down on Wednesday with a 11-point performance on 4-of-10 shooting from the field, adding two rebounds, five assists and two triples in 26 minutes.
It was an easy win, so there was no need for Smokin' Joe to play extra hard. As long as Mike Conley is sidelined, Ingles should be worth his weight in fantasy gold.

Joe Ingles scored 22 points on 8-of-12 shooting while adding two rebounds, six assists, two steals and four 3-pointers on Monday.
Ingles was hot from deep (4-for-5 3s) and continues to post strong value with Mike Conley out. Owners have at least another week of this production left and Ingles should be held in all leagues even with the return of Mike Conley, just to see how things shake out.

Joe Ingles was able to corral eight points, five rebounds, 10 assists, one block and two 3-pointers in Thursday's road win.
Ingles has at least four assists in six of his last seven games and continues to thrive with Mike Conley sidelined. There should be another week (at least) of this arrangement, so Ingles is locked and loaded as a middle-round asset.

Joe Ingles' heater cooled off on Monday vs. the Pistons and quietly posted 10 points on 4-of-9 shooting, five rebounds, five assists, one trey and one block in 30 minutes.
Ingles' hot run was not something that was sustainable, so a pedestrian performance was simply in the cards. However, as long as Mike Conley remains on the shelf, Ingles is a must-own, must-start guy in all formats.

Joe Ingles scored 15 points on 5-of-10 shooting (including five threes) with six rebounds and eight assists in Saturday's road win over the Clippers.
Ingles always had the talent and just needed to make a decision to produce, and with Mike Conley out he has done exactly that. He'll be a mid-round value until he changes his mind on how he's deployed, if it happens.

Joe Ingles stayed on fire in Thursday's 121-115 win over the Blazers, chipping in 26 points on 10-of-15 shooting with six threes, five rebounds, four assists and one steal.
Ingles is coming off a 27-point, seven 3-pointer game and is still feeling some afterburn. He's going to cool off at some point, but is a must-own, must-start asset while Mike Conley is sidelined.

Joe Ingles continued to impress in a start against the Heat on Monday as he put up 27 points (9-for-16 FGs, 2-for-2 FTs), seven 3-pointers, four rebounds, two assists and one steal in 38 minutes
With Mike Conley (left hamstring strain) banged up, Ingles has been back to the player he was for the past few seasons. Based on when Conley tried to return, it looks like Ingles' spot in the starting lineup is safe even once they Jazz are healthy. Make sure he's owned in your league. Rudy Gobert had a monster game with 18 points (9-for-11 FGs), 20 rebounds and five blocks in the loss.

Joe Ingles had an excellent game on Thursday, scoring 14 points on 5-of-10 shooting while adding seven rebounds, five assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.
This type of performance and the 36 minutes bring us back to the glory days of last year and Ingles becomes a must own player in standard leagues with the news that Mike Conley will be missing several weeks. He plays well alongside Rudy Gobert and the Jazz easily slide back into a system they're familiar with now that Ingles is starting.

Mike Conley will miss multiple games, and possibly multiple weeks, after re-injuring his left hamstring on Tuesday.
Conley had just returned from a five-game absence, so this is a blow to fantasy owners. Despite shooting just 36.5 percent from the floor, Conley has averaged 13.6 points and 4.6 assists. In the meantime, Joe Ingles should see his value increase.

Joe Ingles was moved into the starting lineup on Tuesday night and responded with 16 points, 12 rebounds, two assists, two blocks and four 3-pointers.
Ingles has been floundering all season with top-140/170 value (8/9-cat) but has returned top-45 numbers in the last couple of weeks, forcing Quin Snyder's hand. The Jazz started their five best players for the first time all season tonight, which is promising for Ingles, and Mike Conley's re-injury opens up more work as the primary playmaker. His arrow is pointing up and he should be added in all leagues based on his excellent play of late.
