Mike Conley hit just 2-of-14 shots in the Grizzlies' 93-86 loss to the Rockets on Monday, and finished with 10 points, two rebounds, 10 assists, one steal and one three.
Conley ran into defensive game-changer Patrick Beverley, and if there was ever a time to toss a buy-low offer to his owner it's now. Conley is picking up virtually all of the team's playmaking duties and though his efficiency will take a small hit, he's going to make up for it in volume of points and assists.

Mike Conley scored 28 points on 12-of-19 shooting (including two threes) with one rebound, two assists and four steals in the Grizzlies' loss to the Spurs on Friday.
The Spurs can make anybody look bad but surely the loss of Marc Gasol tonight was going to cause some problems, leading to the low assist total for Conley. For however long Gasol is out, look for the opposite to remain true as Conley picks up some of the playmaking duties that were previously assigned to the big man.

Mike Conley scored 19 points and handed out a season-high nine assists on Sunday, while knocking down three 3-pointers to go along with one steal and one block.
Conley has been steady as ever this season, with the exception of his career-low 26.3 percent shooting beyond the arc, so it was doubly encouraging to see him knock down 3-of-5 triples tonight. Though his iron-man abilities don't attract much attention, Conley has missed a grand total of nine games over the past five seasons.

Mike Conley hit 12-of-19 shots and four 3-pointers for a season-high 29 points, zero rebounds, five assists and three steals in Wednesday's loss.
Conley hasn't been all that was advertised, but is still a top fantasy point guard and played well tonight. More assists would have been nice, but it does look like the Grizzlies are starting to become more comfortable with their run-and-gun offense.

Mike Conley scored 26 points before leaving Wednesday's game after being elbowed in the chin, and actually got more stitches (3) than assists (1).
Somehow, Conley and Marc Gasol only managed one assist and rebound tonight, respectively, which is a big reason that the Grizzlies lost to the Pelicans. Conley was pretty good before leaving, hitting 10-of-16 shots, and the lack of assists was simply a fluke. We expect him to be ready for Saturday's game against the Warriors, but keep an eye out for updates just in case.
