Mike Conley said that he won't "consciously" shoot more 3-pointers this year, even though the Grizzlies finished with the fewest made 3-pointers per game last season.

Conley made 1.4 triples per game last year, nearly a third of the Grizzlies' total, so the real question is whether guys like Courtney Lee and Vince Carter can contribute more from the perimeter. "We have a lot of good shooters on this team," Conley said. "I’ll take mine when they’re available." Despite having an oft-overlooked fantasy game, Conley hasn't slipped beyond the top-40 in three seasons.

The Grizzlies announced on Monday that CEO Jason Levien and assistant general manager Stu Lash have left the organization.

GM Chris Wallace will assume interim responsibility for basketball operations until a replacement is found. An unnamed source said that Jason Levien and owner Robert Pera had been at odds for over a year, and it wouldn't be surprising to see some more changes come from the Grizzlies organization.

Mike Conley played through a hamstring injury during Saturday's Game 7 loss to the Thunder, finishing with 20 points, five boards, nine assists, four steals and four turnovers on 8-of-14 shooting.

It was clear he was still dealing with his strained hammy and was on the stationary bike when he wasn't on the court. Conley turned in a magnificent game despite being at less than 100 percent and even played some nice defense as the main reason for OKC turning the ball over 18 times tonight. He finished the regular season with top-40 value despite missing nine games and he'll head into next season as a top-10 point guard in fantasy leagues.

Mike Conley vowed to play through his right hamstring injury during Game 7 on Saturday.

"The pain is still there, but nothing I can’t play through, I think," said Conley, whose mobility has improved since the injury. Nick Calathes and Zach Randolph are both out with suspensions and Tony Allen (eye) is questionable to play, so the Grizzlies need Conley to at least match his postseason averages of 15.2 points, 4.5 rebounds, 7.7 assists and 1.7 steals.

Mike Conley said he's "feeling sore" at Friday's practice and that he expects to play on Saturday in Game 7.

He added that his soreness is not as bad has he thought. Conley looked bothered by his right hamstring strain in his one minute of action in the fourth quarter following Thursday's injury. Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol are great, but the loss of Nick Calathes (suspension) makes Conley Memphis' most indispensable player. We'll have another update following practice.
May 2 - 2:30 PM

Coach Dave Joeger said in Thursday's post-game interview that he's "hoping" Mike Conley (hamstring) can play in Game 7 on Saturday.

Conley added he is planning on playing in Game 7. He was limping in the locker room after the game due to his right hamstring strain which he suffered in the second half tonight. Conley returned to the game for just 56 seconds after the injury and he was clearly at less than 100 percent. He's very likely to be limited in practice on Friday and the team should have an update on his status. If he's not going to play, the Grizzlies will be in huge trouble with only Beno Udrih left at point guard.

Mike Conley is dealing with a right hamstring strain and is expected to return to Thursday's game.

He went to the locker room and returned to the bench about five minutes following that trip. Conley hasn't really dealt with many hamstring strains in his career and the injury doesn't sound serious. The Grizzlies are getting blown out, so Conley might not return in order to get closer to 100 percent for Game 7 on Saturday.

Mike Conley turned in a great game during a huge 98-95 win on Thursday with 20 points, five boards, three assists, two steals, two 3-pointers and one turnover on 8-of-14 from the field.

The Thunder may have made a mistake by not putting Russell Westbrook on Conley for a sizable portion of this game and Conley played mistake-free for basically the whole game. Conley is better known for his output in steals, but his offense came around nicely this year with a solid effective field goal percentage of 50.0. Even though he missed nine games in the regular season, Conley was still able to put up third-round value in standard fantasy leagues.

Mike Conley has won the NBA's Joe Dumars Trophy for sportsmanship.

Conley received 77 first-place votes out of a possible 334 and finished just ahead of Jeff Green and Channing Frye. The award is voted on by the players and is given to the player who reflects the ideals of sportsmanship, including ethical behavior, fair play and integrity. Despite the fact that he's locked into a playoff battle with the Thunder right now, this award comes as a nice personal reward for Conley as it was voted on by his peers.

Mike Conley scored 19 points and handed out 12 assists with just two turnovers as the Grizzlies stole Game 2 in Oklahoma City on Monday.

This gives Conley 23 assists with three turnovers in the series, which is even more impressive since the Thunder forced 14.5 turnovers per game during the regular season. His two errors were costly ones late in overtime but the Grizzlies still got the victory behind admirable execution and a gutsy team effort on both ends.
Apr 21 - 11:20 PM

The Grizzlies don't plan to make any big adjustments for Game 2 vs. the Thunder on Monday.

Head coach Dave Joerger said the Grizzlies "just need to be decisive and get our spacing correct," and his sentiments were echoed by virtually every player interviewed after the game. They'll need to be more energetic and forceful from the opening tip on Monday to even the series at 1-1 and shift home court advantage back to Memphis for Game 3.
Apr 21 - 1:29 PM

Mike Conley hit just 6-of-16 shots and missed all six of his 3-point attempts in Saturday's Game 1 loss to the Thunder, but finished with 16 points, five rebounds, 11 assists and three steals.

He came through for fantasy owners, but will have to play better than this if the Grizzlies are going to beat OKC. And that's a tall order.
Apr 20 - 12:37 AM

Mike Conley played 42 minutes against the Mavericks on Wednesday during a big 106-105 win, scoring 22 points with four boards, five assists, two steals and one 3-pointer.

He had a hamstring issue on Monday and has been able to do all of his activities leading up to tonight. Conley hit a couple big free throws down the stretch, which was reassuring after he missed some clutch ones on Monday. The Grizzlies will take on the Thunder in the first round.
Apr 16 - 11:31 PM

Mike Conley said that his right hamstring injury has improved, though his status for Wednesday's game remains uncertain.

"I'm doing a lot of stretching and keeping heat on it, so it should be loose," Conley said. Fantasy owners relying on Conley for production in the season's final game should check back closer to tip-off for the final word on his status.
