Conley's foot injury will likely linger throughout the playoffs, ESPN reports.

Conley noted that typically his injury, a foot sprain near his arch, would be treated by placing the foot in a walking boot for an extended period of time. But with the Grizzlies in the midst of a playoff run, Conley does not plan to take any rest, and he'll continue to play through discomfort. "It's a lot of sleepless nights, constantly doing rehab, constantly in a tub or constantly hooked up to some machine trying to fix my foot," Conley said. "It's going to flare up, no matter what I do. It's my new routine, my new reality right now. It's what I have to do to get ready, and I'm happy doing it because I know I'm able to play. And whatever I have to do to play, I'm doing." Conley certainly did not appear to be limited by the injury in Game 2, when he scored 18 points to go with six assists in 29 minutes. He was moving so well, in fact, that opposing point guard Damian Lillard said after the game that he didn't even know Conley has dealing with an injury.

Conley (foot) scored 18 points (6-11 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT) with six assists and a steal in 29 minutes during Wednesday's Game 2 win over the Trail Blazers.

Despite the foot injury he's been dealing with since the end of the regular season, Conley was still able to produce his usual numbers. He'll get a couple of days to heal before Game 3 in Portland, but the injury seems likely to continue bothering him throughout the playoffs.

Conley (foot) will play in Game 2 against the Trail Blazers on Wednesday, Clay Bailey of the Memphis Commercial Appeal reports.

Conley, who was battling a sprained foot prior to the playoffs, scored 16 points (6-11 FG, 4-5 FT) in 24 minutes in Sunday's Game 1, and he'll remain in the lineup for Game 2, despite being less than 100 percent. Coach Dave Joerger may try to monitor Conley's minutes, though it seems unlikely that the Grizzlies will open up another huge lead early in the game.

Conley (right foot sprain) is considered probable for Wednesday's Game 2 against the Trail Blazers, Rob Fischer of Sports 56 WHBQ reports.

The foot sprain normally requires a full six weeks to heal, but Conley was able to return to the lineup for Game 1 after just an 11-day absence. He'll probably be operating at less than 100 percent for the rest of the postseason, but even a banged-up Conley represents a better option for the Grizzlies than Beno Udrih, despite his sensational 9-for-14 shooting effort in Game 1. It's worth noting, however, that Conley was limited to just 24 minutes of action in his return to the lineup, which could make him a risky play in daily formats due to his likely prohibitive price.

Conley (foot) posted 16 points, one rebound, one assist, and one steal in 24 minutes of action in Game 1 against the Blazers.

Conley didn't contribute much in any category other than scoring, but fortunately for the Grizzlies, he didn't have to. Conley has seen his effectiveness drop after the first half of the season, but he's still a strong player regardless. Look for him to post solid numbers moving forward.

Conley (foot) will play in Sunday's Game 1 against Portland, Ronald Tillery of The Commercial Appeal reports.

Conley's status for Sunday's game changed multiple times but he's ultimately in line to make his return to the court after missing the final four games of the regular season. This move is expected to demote Beno Udrih back to his normal role off the bench.

Conley (foot) is now listed as a game-time decision for Sunday's playoff opener against the Clippers after getting the green light earlier in the day, The Oregonian reports.

Conley was in line to play Sunday but now Memphis will wait until closer to tipoff before allowing Conley to take the court. He's missed the past four games so there's certainly some concern that rushing him back on the court may result in further injury. If he's ultimately deemed unfit to play then Beno Udrih will likely get the start at point guard.

Conley (foot) will play in Sunday's Game 1 against Portland, Rob Fischer of Sports 56 WHBQ-87.7FM reports.

Conley was considered questionable ahead of Sunday's game but he apparently feels well enough to take the court despite missing the final four games of the regular season with a sprained right foot. His presence on the court will likely move Beno Udrih to a role off the bench.

Conley (foot) is questionable for Sunday's game against Portland, Sports 56 WHBQ's Rod Fischer reports.

While he missed Wednesday's regular season finale and it was said that he would have been inactive even if it had been a playoff game, we should get a good sense of how badly Conley's injury is based on his status Sunday. Should Conley be ruled out for Game 1 of the first round series, Beno Udrih would likely get the start at point guard.

Conley (foot) is out for Wednesday's contest against Indiana and there is no timetable for his return, Ronald Tillery of the Commercial Appeal reports.

Coach Dave Joerger said that neither Conley nor Tony Allen would be able to play Wednesday, even if it were a playoff game, Tillery reported. Beno Udrih will draw the start again in Conley's place and it's unclear whether Conley will be ready for the opening game of the postseason.
