Conley was playing through several injuries in the playoffs, the Commerical Appeal reports.

Conley played through the injuries, so none of them should be considered long-term issues that are likely to linger into next season. However, just for fun, Conley's list included: broken face, strained neck, left wrist sprain, right wrist sprain, lower back tightness, and a right foot sprain. Thankfully, there's a whole offseason for the Memphis training staff to put Humpty Dumpty back together again.

Conley struggled in a Game 6 elimination loss to the Warriors, posting 11 points (3-13 FG, 5-7 FT, 0-6 3Pt), one rebound, nine assists, and two steals in 39 minutes of action.

Conley had an extremely difficult time in the series, averaging just 11.2 points and 4.8 assists on 38 percent shooting from the field. He's had better stints in the regular season, and the veteran point guard will just have to learn from experience as he heads into next season.

Conley posted 13 points, five assists, and three steals in 33 minutes of action in Game 5's loss to the Warriors.

Conley is averaging 11.2 points, 0.6 rebounds, 4.0 assists, and 1.2 steals during the series, and it's clear he's been struggling to play like his usual self. He'll have to find a way to be more effective (as he was in Game 1) if the Grizzlies hope to prevent elimination in Game 6.

Conley went cold from the field in Game 4's loss to the Warriors, shooting 4-for-15 for 10 points, three rebounds, seven assists, and three steals in 33 minutes of action.

Conley couldn't seem to find his touch in Game 4, and it definitely affected the Grizzlies' overall offensive efficiency. He's now shooting just 7-for-25 from the field over the last two games and will need to regain his touch in time for Game 5.

Conley required intravenous fluids to take care of his cramps following Saturday's Game 3 against the Warriors, The Commercial Appeal reports. Additionally, Conley's stitches above his right eye popped out during the course of Game 3, but neither of these incidents are expected to keep him from playing in Game 4 on Monday.

Conley has really taken a beating these playoffs but still manages to play through all his ailments. However, he's been somewhat limited in terms of minutes since returning from facial surgery, 29.5 over his last two games, but seems to be working his way back to a full compliment of minutes game-by-game. At 16.5 points per game in the Golden State series thus far, Conley is a viable option across all formats as long as he's on the court.

Conley scored 11 points (3-10 FG 2-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT) with five assists in the game three win over the Warriors on Saturday.

Conley had a quiet performance in game three, but wasn't needed as Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph shouldered the load the Grizzlies at home. The biggest takeaway is that Conley was able to play a full compliment of minutes without major issues. Conley remains a sneaky value play in DFS.

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.
