The Detroit Pistons and Utah Jazz square off on Wednesday night at Vivint Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah, to begin their two-game cross-conference series.
The latest injury status of Mike Conley and Rudy Gay
With a total of 228.0 points, the Pistons are 11.5-point road underdogs. Cade Cunningham (leg) and Isaiah Stewart (foot) are out, and Saddiq Bey (ankle) is questionable. On the other hand, the Jazz will most likely be without Mike Conley (knee) and Rudy Gay (hand) for the first time this season.

- The Jazz Injuries
Mike Conley is listed as a QUES for the Pistons vs. Jazz game on Wednesday.
Injury to the lower left leg Conley’s injury suffered in Saturday’s win over the Trail Blazers would keep him out for at least two weeks, but Walden says the Jazz aren’t ruling out the possibility of the veteran point guard returning sooner.
He’ll almost certainly miss the first two games of this week, and he’ll almost certainly miss at least one half of the weekend back-to-back set.
Gay will be out for at least two weeks, according to the Jazz, who announced the news on Thursday.
Rudy Gay had an MRI, which revealed a sprain of the third finger MCP joint in his left hand. He’ll be re-evaluated in about two weeks.
- The Pistons injuries
Saddiq Bey flew back to Detroit on Monday to receive treatment for a sprained right ankle, indicating that the forward will miss the remaining three games of the Pistons’ three-game road trip.
Saddiq Bey, who sat out Sunday’s loss to the Kings, will miss games in Denver on Tuesday, Utah on Wednesday, and Phoenix on Friday while he returns to Detroit to continue his rehab program.
Cunningham (lower leg) will be out indefinitely due to a shin stress fracture.

Cade Cunningham will miss at least the next four games for the Pistons due to left shin soreness, the team announced prior to Saturday’s game. He’ll be re-evaluated after the Pistons’ game against the Lakers next Friday in Los Angeles.
The second-year guard will miss the games against the Boston Celtics on Saturday, the Toronto Raptors on Monday, and the Los Angeles Clippers and Los Angeles Lakers the following week.
