Utah Jazz guard Mike Conley Jr. came off the bench during Friday's 118-108 loss against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Conley was on a minutes restriction in his return from a knee strain. The Ohio State product finished with 17 points and six assists in 25 minutes of action.

Conley missed Utah's last nine games with the injury, which he suffered in a Nov. 19 contest against the Portland Trail Blazers.

The veteran point guard helped lead the Jazz to a surprising 12-6 start before being sidelined. Utah struggled in Conley's absence, winning just three of nine games.

Conley averaged 10.2 points and a career-high 7.9 assists in 17 contests prior to the injury.
