"If I could, I’d definitely take the shot," Conley said. "But from everything they tell me, the injury is on the one area of my foot where you can’t take an injection. Believe me: I would if I could."
Conley elaborated on the extent of the injury Wednesday.
"It’s right on the inside of the arch," Conley said. "It’s a sprain of the plantar tendon and the spring ligament, or something. All I know is it’s a tough spot to have one right now. It’s a weight-bearing injury, so any weight you put on it will make it last longer. Normally, you’d be walking around in a medical boot, immobilized and not doing anything. But I know we don’t have time for that."
Conley missed the final four games of the regular season as the team lost its grip on the No. 2 seed in the West.
"It’s been rough, honestly," Conley said. "A lot of stress because I know that at the end of the season, I wanted to be there helping us win the No. 2 spot, helping us achieve all the things we wanted to achieve, but [we] weren’t able to do that. And I felt [my injury] was a big reason we weren’t able to do that, so I’m happy being able to come back and play. That’s the most important thing."
Conley has averaged 17 points in his first two playoff games as the Grizzlies have jumped out to a 2-0 series lead.
Lee scored just nine points in Game 1 but was able to post his best scoring performance since delivering the same total in the team's first game of March. He also kicked in three steals, two rebounds and one assist in 33 minutes in the win.
The Grizzlies have a 2-0 series lead for the first time in franchise history. They'll travel to Portland for Game 3 Saturday.
Udrih headed back to the locker room immediately after suffering the injury but was able to return to the bench a few minutes later. He was initially listed as probable to return before the team downgraded him to questionable during the first half. He returned to the court late in the third quarter.
Udrih's eight points on 4 of 7 shooting represented a team high at the time of his departure.
Conley has been dealing with a sprained right foot, but he was able to play 24 minutes in the Game 1 win. Meanwhile, Allen is suffering from a hamstring injury, which caused him to miss the last nine games of the regular season. He was able to play 25 minutes during Game 1.
The Grizzlies are 6-point favorites over the Blazers on Wednesday.
"It's going to flare up no matter what I do," Conley said. "I just go out there and play as if I'm not injured and see how much I can do and what I can do to help the team and the following day is just rehab and recover."
The injury caused Conley to miss the last four games of the regular season, but he was able to play 24 minutes and score 16 points in the Game 1 victory over the Trail Blazers.
Despite the injury, center Marc Gasol said he expects Conley to keep playing through the pain.
"I expect a lot out of him to be honest with you," Gasol said. "He's my little man. He's a great player, great guy. I knew he wasn't going to miss a playoff game. I can only ask him to give me whatever he has, and he's done it. And I'm going to ask the same next game."
