Conley (face) will attempt to play tonight and should be in the starting lineup, ESPN reports.

According to coach David Joerger, Conley will play as long as he's not hurting the team while he's on the floor. He's also on track to jump back into the starting lineup which was expected if he was given the green light. With that being said, there's still a chance Conley plays very limited minutes, so that's something to keep in mind before putting him in your lineups.

Conley (face) is officially listed as questionable for Tuesday's Game 2 against Golden State, Ronald Tillery of the Memphis Commercial Appeal reports.

Conley, who coach Dave Joerger called "doubtful" Monday, was present at practice and appears to have a good chance to return to the court Tuesday, though he is yet to go through contact drills. Conley, himself, said he expects to play, though the team's medical staff will ultimately have the final say. Joerger did confirm that if Conely is given the green light, he'll get the start at point guard.

Conley (face) said he expects to play in Tuesday's Game 2 against the Warriors, Peter Fleischer of FOX Sports Memphis reports.

Conley, who missed Game 1 after undergoing surgery to repair multiple facial fractures, took part in practice Monday and went through a shooting workout following the session. While team doctors will ultimately have the final say, it appears Conley, himself, has recovered to the point that he's comfortable playing. If given the green light, expect Conley to don a mask for Game 2, which he'll likely wear throughout the series.

Conley (face) is unlikely to play in Game 2 on Tuesday against the Wairriors, Sam Amick of USA Today reports.

Conley took the court for pregame warmups prior to Sunday's Game 1, but ultimately sat out. Despite a mask, he's still dealing with swelling around his face following facial surgery to repair multiple fractures. It looks as though the issue will hold him out Tuesday as well, but an official designation should come at some point before the contest.

Conley (face) will not play in Game 1 on Sunday against the Warriors, Rob Fischer of Sports 56 WHBQ-87.7FM reports.

Conley managed to take pregame warmups with a mask but still has swelling around his face after undergoing surgery just five days ago to repair multiple fractures in his facial bones. The next opportunity for Conley to play will be in Game 2 on Tuesday, although he'll be another game-time decision.

Conley (face) is on the court for pregame warmups against the Warriors on Sunday, further complicating his original designation of doubtful coming into Sunday, Kevin Lipe of the Memphis Flyer reports.

Conley continues to surprise as it now seems that he'll at least return to the court sometime during the Golden State series. Game 1 on Sunday still may be a bit premature for that eventual comeback, although the Grizzlies should update his status closer to tipoff.

Conley (face) is doubtful for Sunday's game, according to coach Dave Joerger, FOX 13's Peter Fleischer reports.

The Grizzlies are being very difficult to read with this situation, as there were reports that Conley practiced Saturday and then Joerger said he was unavailable at practice. The doubtful tag could be a little bit of gamesmanship on the part of Memphis, but we now have to operate as if he will not be available for Game 1.

Conley (face) practiced with the Grizzlies on Saturday and there's a chance he could play in Game 1 against the Warriors on Sunday, FOX 13's Peter Fleischer reports.

Memphis doesn't have much of a shot in this series without Conley, so obviously the Grizzlies will bring him back as soon as possible. We should learn more about his potential availability after Saturday's practice.

Conley (face) will travel with the Grizzlies to Oakland for the first two games of the teams' second round series, Rob Fischer of Sports 56 WHBQ in Memphis reports. "The game plan is without him, but at some point in the series you're hoping that he plays," coach Dave Joerger said.

Conley continues to recovery from facial fractures suffered during the Grizzlies' first round series against the Trail Blazers. While the injuries won't fully heal for 4-to-6 weeks, the expectation seems to be that Conley will return to the court much earlier. He's currently battling swelling in his face, which prevents the team's medical staff from fitting him with a mask. Continue to consider Conley day-to-day, and his status figures to be updated on a game-to-game basis.
