Mike Conley said he'll continue to wear a protective mask until he feels comfortable.
We all knew who he was before he put on the mask, but Conley plans to continue wearing it just in case he gets hit again. "I'm going to keep it for a little bit," Conley said. "I feel more comfortable with it on whenever I'm playing because I already know I get hit in my face all the time. I'm a little dude, so I'm around elbows and stuff all the time." Conley doesn't wow in any category, but he's solid across the board and should be targeted in the middle rounds of fantasy drafts. Oct 1 - 11:56 AM

Grizzlies coach Dave Joerger wants Mike Conley to look for his own shot more often, particularly near the rim.

"We need more quick attacks from him and get us some easy baskets by being aggressive," Joerger said. "His quick attacks are paramount to our success. He gets stronger every year, and what I like is he's really strengthened his legs." He has reportedly gained "at least" 15 pounds of muscle this summer, a common claim which is believable when applied to Conley, who is entering a contract year. He's been a top-40 value in 8-cat leagues for each of the past four seasons and can typically be drafted at a discount.

Mike Conley has added "at least" 15 lbs of muscle this offseason.

Conley is entering a contract season, so he's going to do everything he can in order to put himself in a position to succeed. After battling through the postseason at well less than 100 percent health last season, Conley should enter the season feeling like a completely new player. As usual, he makes for a solid if unspectacular mid-round target for fantasy owners.

The Grizzlies have tried numerous times to engage Mike Conley in extension talks, but he reportedly wants to be a free agent in 2016.

To be clear, this doesn't mean that he will leave the Grizzlies, but it does make the most financial sense for him to wait until he hits the open market in 2016. Conley is an outstanding point guard and often doesn't get the credit he deserves, but it's safe to say that he will be getting a significant raise soon. He courageously battled through several injuries during the playoffs, but he should be rejuvenated after a summer full of rest and will be a solid target in the early middle rounds.

When asked to reveal his list of injuries, Mike Conley said he's dealing with a broken face, a strained neck, a left wrist sprain, a right wrist sprain, lower back tightness and a right foot sprain.

Yikes. Conley just wasn't the same player since the All-Star break and all of these injuries explain why. None of these injuries figure to linger on with maybe the exception of his back issue, so fantasy owners can draft him assuming he'll be healthy. He's likely going to be a nice value in the early middle rounds.

Mike Conley made 3-of-13 from the field for 11 points against the Warriors during a Game 6 108-95 loss on Friday, adding one rebound, nine assists, two steals and one turnover.

He deserves some credit for coming back, but Conley just wasn't the same since he first went down back in March. Both of his ankles didn't seem to be 100 percent and his struggles in this series might not have to do with his facial injury. In his five games against the Warriors, he averaged just 13.4 points, 0.8 boards, 5.8 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.4 treys. He'll probably be a nice value in the early middle rounds of drafts next season.

Mike Conley detailed what it was like recovering from the extremely painful facial fracture he sustained during Game 3 of Memphis' first-round series in a recent interview.

"That [first] night [in the hospital], I was throwing up," Conley said. "And every time I threw up—because when you do it, you can't really control this—I'd have to open my mouth. It would just kill me because I couldn't really open my mouth. Then, all of a sudden, blood would come out of my nose and I was like: 'I think I'm dying.' It was crazy." It's amazing that Conley has not only been able to play in Memphis' second-round series, but that he's been a difference-maker, and that speaks volumes to his toughness.

Mike Conley needed an IV before practice on Sunday to help him deal with the cramps he has had late in Game 2 and Game 3.

The guy is simply resilient and you just have to admire his toughness. Conley is playing with a swollen left eye, facial fractures, calf cramps and a sprained right foot, but he continues to perform at a high level against arguably the best team in the NBA. Conley is going to be good to go for Game 4 on Monday, and he will look to help the Grizzlies take a commanding 3-1 series lead over Golden State.
May 10 - 2:08 PM

Mike Conley scored 11 points with five assists and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes in Saturday's Game win over the Warriors.

Conley shot just 3-of-10 from the field and wasn't very aggressive on offense, but he deserves all the credit in the world for playing through a variety of ailments. Conley's face was bleeding at one point and he was clearly limping due to cramps late in the game, but the fact that he played 32 minutes suggests that he should be able to keep fighting through the pain moving forward. Conley and the Grizzlies will look to take a commanding 3-1 series lead over the Warriors in Memphis on Monday.
May 10 - 12:03 AM

Mike Conley will wear a new mask for Game 3 which will adjust to a slightly less swollen left side of his face.

The swelling has gone down considerably in Conley's left eye, and he also reiterated that the long break between Game 2 and 3 has been huge for his recovery. Conley managed to score 22 points in his return in Game 2, so he should be able to build off that performance in tonight's game as the Grizzlies try and take a 2-1 series lead over the Warriors. With Conley back in the lineup, Beno Udrih will serve as the primary backup point guard, while Nick Calathes will provide emergency depth.
May 9 - 12:16 PM

The swelling and redness has gone down considerably in Mike Conley's left eye.

Conley said that the long break between Games 2 and 3 have done his body wonders, and he'll look to build off a strong 22-point effort from Game 2 heading into Game 3, which will take place in Memphis on Saturday. Conley is still dealing with pain in his sprained right foot, but he's made it clear that nothing will keep him off the court as Memphis looks to continue their postseason push.
May 8 - 1:39 PM

Mike Conley said that his sprained right foot is "still sore."

So much attention has been on Conley's face, that his foot injury has gone nearly unreported. He's banged up right now, but it's playoff basketball, so he's going to do whatever he can to stay on the court. He'll look to build off Tuesday's 22-point outburst heading into Game 3 in Memphis on Saturday.
May 7 - 2:52 PM

Mike Conley (facial surgery) said that people don't understand what he has been going through for the past week.

"What I had to endure the past week, I don't think people really understand what I was going through physically," Conley said after Tuesday's Game 2 victory over the Warriors. "And then mentally with the pressure of playing and knowing that the team needed me to just find a way. And that was the biggest … finding a way regardless to how I was feeling." It was incredible to see Conley score 22 points on Tuesday after having surgery on his face just a week ago, and it's also worth mentioning that he has been bothered by a sprained right foot for several weeks as well. Conley now has three full days to rest before Game 3 on Saturday, so we hope that he continues to make strides in his recovery.

Mike Conley (facial surgery) thrived in his return during Game 2, scoring 22 points on 8-of-12 shooting with three 3-pointers and three assists to help the Grizzlies pull out a rare win in Oracle Arena.

Conley's sprained right foot is a lingering issue, his left eye remains swollen and red after recent facial surgery, he was exhausted due to a lack of conditioning, and he finished the game in obvious pain due to apparent cramping in his left calf. The good news is that he survived a hit to the face from Draymond Green and none of the above ailments prevented him from playing 27 brilliant minutes at the NBA's highest level of competition. All signs point to him being ready on Saturday, when the series shifts to Memphis for Game 3.
May 6 - 1:40 AM

Mike Conley (facial surgery) confirmed that he feels "good enough" to play in Game 2 on Tuesday.

Conley's foot is also bothering him and he was dealing with sensitivity to light and sound as recently as Sunday's Game 1 matchup, but he'll give it a go with a protective mask tonight. "I'm going to do what I always do. I'm going to play to win," he said. He will start with Beno Udrih and Nick Calathes serving as a tandem backup at PG.
