Mike Conley (Achilles) will sit out against Indiana on Wednesday.

He is day-to-day, but coach David Fizdale said this is something he's been struggling with since Day-1, so it sounds like there could be additional maintenance on his foot going forward. Conley's fantasy value has dropped in a big way, and it could be a while before he's 100 percent. His value is probably too low to trade, so his fantasy owners may want to just sit tight until he can get it going again. Mario Chalmers is worth a look in 12-team leagues while Andrew Harrison should get minutes, as well. Tyreke Evans should be busy in the second unit.

Mike Conley (left Achilles) did not participate during shootaround and remains questionable to play Wednesday vs. the Pacers.

Conley looks to be headed for a game-time call, but given his history with Achilles issues, the Grizzlies may want to play it safe and give him the night off. After Wednesday, the Grizzlies don't play again until Saturday, so if Conley sits that would give him a full four days to rest his sore left Achilles. Mario Chalmers will draw the start if Conley sits, and there will be more shots to go around for guys like Tyreke Evans and Marc Gasol. Stay tuned.

Mike Conley (left Achilles) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Pacers.

Conley will never be one to make excuses, but coming off a 2-of-12 shooting performance, it's tough to try and say that the Achilles issue isn't affecting him. This is the same Achilles that limited him to just 56 games during his 2015-16 campaign, so the Grizzlies may want to give him some time off to avoid this turning into a lingering issue. If he's out, Mario Chalmers would likely draw the start and Marc Gasol would see a spike in usage. Stay tuned.
Nov 14 - 5:59 PM

Mike Conley scored a season-low seven points and hit just 2-of-12 shots in Monday's loss to the Bucks.

As referenced in the link below, Conley's shooting numbers are down across the board this season. Despite playing 33 minutes, he wasn't productive in other areas of the boxscore either with two assists, one steal and two triples. Conley did miss a game on Nov. 1 due to an Achilles issue, so maybe he's not 100 percent. However, if he is healthy then he's way too good to not snap out of this funk, so this could be a great buy-low opportunity.
Nov 13 - 11:50 PM

Mike Conley had a forgettable game vs. Houston on Saturday, shooting 4-of-11 from the field for 12 points, five assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes.

The minutes aren't a concern since there was plenty of garbage time -- Marc Gasol also played 28 minutes while getting 15 points, nine boards and three assists. Houston has been stingy vs. PGs despite the early loss of Chris Paul this season, giving up the 10th-fewest DFS points, and Conley should bounce back vs. the Bucks on Monday.
Nov 11 - 10:53 PM

Mike Conley had 23 points, five rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block on Sunday, making 9-of-17 shots with three 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

Conley suited up for both games this weekend, despite being listed as 'questionable' prior to Saturday's game. Presumably that means that it's a very minor ailment, as Memphis wouldn't have risked a setback in a back-to-back situation vs. the Lakers tonight. He should be fine vs. the Blazers on Tuesday and we're leaving him off the injury report.
Nov 6 - 12:17 AM

Mike Conley scored 21 points with one rebound, three assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the Clippers on Saturday.

He's fared well in his games against the Clippers and once again he didn't have any problem with what coach Doc Rivers threw at him. Good game aside, it'll be interesting to see how the Grizzlies handle Sunday's Staples Center back-to-back against the Lakers. Perhaps this win today could mean the team thinks it's playing with house money, so they may opt to rest Conley to give him a few days before they head to Portland for Tuesday. He's off to a slow start, but he should improve in a hurry as long as he's able to stay healthy.
Nov 4 - 6:50 PM

Mike Conley (Achilles) will start against the Clippers on Saturday.

He was called a game-time decision for this game, so maybe he'll be slightly limited after he missed Wednesday. Conley may have to have this Achilles injury managed at some point, so maybe Mario Chalmers can get a couple extra minutes. You're obviously starting Conley everywhere.
Nov 4 - 2:13 PM

Mike Conley (Achilles) is not listed on the injury report but is a game-time decision for Saturday's matchup vs. the Clippers, according to Grizzlies reporter Michael Wallace.

If Conley is unable to play, it would be the second straight game he has missed. Per Wallace, Conley is "managing soreness in his Achilles," but "hopes to play in Saturday's game." We should have definitive world within the hour, as the game tips off at 3:30 est. If Conley can't play, Mario Chalmers will likely draw another start. Chalmers had seven points and five assists in 26 minutes on Wednesday.
Nov 4 - 1:42 PM

Mike Conley (Achilles) will not play against the Magic on Wednesday.

The Grizzlies will take it easy on their star point guard and sit him for the first time this season. He should be considered questionable for Saturday against the Clippers. As for tonight, Mario Chalmers should be able to clear his season-high 26 minutes while Andrew Harrison is likely to shift back to being more of a point guard. That should also open up minutes on the wings, so Tyreke Evans, Dillon Brooks and others could benefit.
Nov 1 - 6:23 PM

Mike Conley (sore left Achilles) and Marc Gasol (left ankle) will be game-time decisions for Wednesday's game against the Magic.

"We'll see how it goes. I'm going to get some more treatment right now," Conley said after shootaround. This left Achilles issue was a major problem for Conley during the 2015-16 season, limiting him to just 56 games, so the Grizzlies might want to play it safe and keep him on the sidelines to avoid this turning into a lingering issue. If he's out, Mario Chalmers would be in line for a start, and he'd make for an intriguing dice roll in daily leagues. Stay tuned.

Mike Conley (sore left Achilles) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Magic.

Conley's left Achilles has been a reoccurring issue dating back to 2016, and it was one of the main reasons he only got through 56 games during his 2015-16 campaign, so the Grizzlies may want to take it easy on him this early in the season to avoid this becoming a lingering thing. If Conley is forced to the sidelines on Wednesday, Mario Chalmers would likely draw the start, and he'd make for an intriguing DFS punt play. Check back for another update following Wednesday morning's shootaround.
Oct 31 - 6:06 PM

David Fizdale revealed that Mike Conley has been dealing with some foot soreness, but he's been pushing through it the past few games.

This helps explain why Conley has been connecting on just 36.8 percent of his shot attempts this season, and he has dealt with foot issues in the past, so maybe he'll take a few games off. Although, Conley tends to get out there as long as he's capable of walking. The lame shooting percentages shouldn't be a long-term issue, and his steal should gradually work there way up to his career average of 1.5, so savvy fantasy GMs would be wise to try and float out some buy-low offers.
Oct 31 - 3:01 PM

Mike Conley scored 22 points with one rebound, four assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Mavs on Thursday.

He did miss two clutch free throws in a row late in this game to give the Mavs a chance, but he finished 10-of-12 from there tonight. As expected, Conley is firing away from deep with his 7.2 attempts per game, making 2.4 per game so far this season. Conley's pace is slightly up and his assist percentage is slightly down, so there's still some room for important. If you took him in the third round, you should feel pretty comfortable despite a somewhat slow start.
