Mike Conley scored 20 points with four rebounds, five assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Nets on Wednesday.
Marc Gasol (foot) runs the offense a lot and has the most dimes for centers, so we'll be seeing more of Conley in play-making spots. Expect him to be an early-round asset going forward in a contract year. Feb 10 - 10:28 PM

Mike Conley scored a season-high 27 points during a 112-106 overtime loss to the Blazers on Monday, adding three rebounds, three assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

His defense wasn't great, but at least he was effective on the offensive end. Since Conley returned from an Achilles issue 10 games ago, he averaged 13.7 points, 3.5 boards, 7.2 assists, 0.9 steals and 1.1 treys. He's been a fifth-round player in that span despite not even playing his best. Expect him to improve and the All-Star break should help him.

Mike Conley will consider all options when he becomes a free agent this summer.

"I think everything will be on the table when the time comes," Conley said. "I haven’t committed to anything." The Grizzlies might be a little nervous following this quote, as Conley will have the ability to walk at the end of the season as an unrestricted free agent. Grizzlies general manager Chris Wallace has already stated that Conley will be the team's "No. 1 priority" this summer, but there will certainly be a lot of competition for his signature.

Mike Conley was held to just eight points on Saturday vs. the Kings, adding seven assists, four boards and one steal.

The minutes were there, but Conley wasn't very active on offense and shot 3-of-6 from the field with two turnovers. He hasn't found his stride since returning from his Achilles injury, averaging just 10.8 points, 6.6 assists, 4.2 boards, 1.2 steals and 0.6 3-pointers over his last five games. He is also shooting 33.3 percent from the field in that span which means the buy-low window is wide open.

Mike Conley was held to just five points on 1-of-8 shooting in Thursday's blowout win over the Bucks.

He saved his line with nine assists, one board and one steal, but he played just 24 minutes due to the lopsided score. Conley hasn't established a rhythm since returning from his Achilles injury, averaging just 12.2 points, 7.2 assists, 3.6 boards, 1.0 steals and 1.2 3-pointers on 35.3 percent shooting from the field. He should get it going soon and is a prime buy-low target.

Grizzlies GM Chris Wallace said Mike Conley will be the team's "No. 1 priority" in free agency this offseason.

What else is he going to say? Conley is revered in Memphis, has been his entire career with the Grizzlies and the team has made no secret that they'd like to keep the point guard in the fold. Expect the two sides to engage in negotiations when allowable, but there will certainly be other teams interested.
Jan 25 - 11:40 AM

Mike Conley scored 20 points against the Nuggets on Thursday with three rebounds, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers on 5-of-9 from the field.

He's back? Conley put up a 15-point, 10-dime game in his return on Monday after missing six games due to his sore Achilles. He didn't have a history of Achilles injuries before this problem, so hopefully it'll be smooth sailing for him. He is a must-start guard again.
Jan 22 - 12:38 AM

Mike Conley (Achilles) will start against the Pelicans on Monday.

He's missed six games and apparently his visit with the doctors over the weekend went well. Conley was flirting with 40 minutes in a few games leading up to his injury on Jan. 4, but the Grizzlies will likely dial him back to 25-30 in his first game back. He should still be in all fantasy lineups today. Mario Chalmers will move to the bench.
Jan 18 - 2:14 PM

The Grizzlies are "hoping" that Mike Conley (Achilles) can play on Monday vs. the Pelicans.

Conley was upgraded to questionable on Sunday ahead of the matchup, so he's obviously making progress after six straight games on the sidelines. It's still unclear how realistic of a shot Conley has at playing, but his return will kibosh the short-term value that Mario Chalmers has been holding.
Jan 18 - 1:50 PM

Mike Conley (Achilles) has been upgraded to questionable for Monday's game vs. the Pelicans.

He has missed six games in a row and the Grizzlies were reportedly willing to shut him down for a little while, so this means his Achilles must finally be progressing. If Conley is cleared to play on Monday, his return will shatter the value of Mario Chalmers. Expect an update after the morning shootaround.
Jan 17 - 6:56 PM

Mike Conley (Achilles) will not play against the Knicks on Saturday night.

He will miss his sixth game tonight and recently saw doctors to check on his sore Achilles. Mario Chalmers has been flirting with 40 minutes in the starting lineup and should be a key contributor tonight again. He should be owned in standard leagues until Conley proves he's healthy.
Jan 16 - 6:27 PM

Mike Conley (Achilles) did not go through shootaround on Saturday.

He is listed as doubtful to play vs. the Knicks, so the Grizzlies will likely hold him out. In fact, the Grizzlies have actually contemplated shutting down Conley for a while before deciding to continue to list him as day-to-day. Expect Mario Chalmers to draw another start on Saturday.
Jan 16 - 11:57 AM

The Grizzlies considered shutting down Mike Conley (Achilles) for a little while.

The Grizzlies ultimately decided to continue to list Conley as day-to-day, but there is still no known timetable for his return. "We’re hoping to be able to come up with a timetable in the next little bit,’’ Memphis coach Dave Joerger said on Friday. "It’s the right thing to do, especially for our fan base on what’s going on and explain what we’re looking at." Conley is doubtful to play vs. the Knicks on Saturday, meaning Mario Chalmers should get at least one more game to run the offense.
Jan 16 - 10:29 AM

Mike Conley (Achilles) is doubtful to play vs. the Knicks on Saturday.

The good news is that he's still listed as day-to-day and there is "no long-term timetable for [Conley's] return." Mario Chalmers has played well as a starter in Conley's absence and he's coming off a 25-point, eight-assist performance that ended with a wild game-winner -- he's an appealing fill-in option vs. Jose Calderon and the Knicks.
Jan 15 - 6:10 PM

Mike Conley (Achilles) met with doctors on Friday and did not practice.

He doesn't have a target date to return from his Achilles issue. Conley hasn't been warming up before games and he's likely going to miss the weekend. Mario Chalmers has been fantastic in his last five with 39.0 minutes per game, so it makes sense to own him in all standard leagues until Conley shows he's healthy.
