Conley went for 17 points (5-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 6-6 FT), 10 assists, four rebounds, one steal, and one block in 28 minutes during the Grizzlies' 110-95 win over the Pelicans on Monday. Conley had scored in single digits during three of the previous six games. Apart from his assists, the Grizzlies' gritty point guard's production had been struggling for the most part over the last couple weeks. Nevertheless, Monday's showing was his fourth double-double of 2015-16, and his second since Jan. 18.
Conley finished with eight points (3-5 FG, 2-4 FT), seven assists, four rebounds and a steal in Saturday's victory against the Kings. Conley was held scoreless until the 4:33 mark of the fourth quarter, taking just six shots all game. Memphis was up big early and relied heavily on Jeff Green (29 points) and Marc Gasol (22 points) for most of the first three quarters. The veteran point guard has been a mixed bag since his return from injury Jan. 18, dishing out 7.2 assists per game but averaging 11.5 points on just 36.9 percent shooting from the field.
Conley collected 20 points (5-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 8-10 FT), three rebounds, two assists and a steal over 27 minutes in Thursday's 102-101 victory over the Nuggets. Conley was highly efficient in his second game back from the Achilles injury that kept him sidelined for six games earlier in January. As he was in his first game back on Monday, the veteran was aggressive in capitalizing on opportunities during his time on the court, visiting the charity stripe a season-high 10 times after not drawing any fouls against the Pelicans on Monday.After struggling with his shot in the two games prior to his injury, Conley has been locked in from the field in his first pair of contests back, shooting 52.3 percent (11-for-21) over that span.
Conley (Achilles) contributed 15 points (6-12 FG, 3-5 3Pt), 10 assists, and one rebound in 27 minutes during the Grizzlies' 101-99 win against the Pelicans on Monday. Conley showed no signs of being slowed by an Achilles injury that sidelined him for the past six games. He did not turn the ball over, and notched his first double-double since Dec. 14 versus the Wizards. Meanwhile, Mario Chalmers scored three points and dished five assists in 21 minutes off the bench.
Conley (Achilles) has been cleared to start at point guard for Monday's game against the Pelicans, Rob Fischer of FOX Sports Southeast reports. After making it through pregame warmups without any apparent setbacks to his ailing left Achilles' tendon, Conley will make his return from a six-game absence. However, because Conley's status for Monday's game was in serious question entering the day, it seems quite likely that he'll face limited minutes in his return to action. If that's the case, backup point guard Mario Chalmers could still see plenty of playing time, but it shouldn't be long before Conley regularly surpasses 30 minutes on a regular basis.
