The Grizzlies announced on Monday that CEO Jason Levien and assistant general manager Stu Lash have left the organization.

GM Chris Wallace will assume interim responsibility for basketball operations until a replacement is found. An unnamed source said that Jason Levien and owner Robert Pera had been at odds for over a year, and it wouldn't be surprising to see some more changes come from the Grizzlies organization.

Mike Conley played through a hamstring injury during Saturday's Game 7 loss to the Thunder, finishing with 20 points, five boards, nine assists, four steals and four turnovers on 8-of-14 shooting.

It was clear he was still dealing with his strained hammy and was on the stationary bike when he wasn't on the court. Conley turned in a magnificent game despite being at less than 100 percent and even played some nice defense as the main reason for OKC turning the ball over 18 times tonight. He finished the regular season with top-40 value despite missing nine games and he'll head into next season as a top-10 point guard in fantasy leagues.

Mike Conley vowed to play through his right hamstring injury during Game 7 on Saturday.

"The pain is still there, but nothing I can't play through, I think," said Conley, whose mobility has improved since the injury. Nick Calathes and Zach Randolph are both out with suspensions and Tony Allen (eye) is questionable to play, so the Grizzlies need Conley to at least match his postseason averages of 15.2 points, 4.5 rebounds, 7.7 assists and 1.7 steals.

Mike Conley said he's "feeling sore" at Friday's practice and that he expects to play on Saturday in Game 7.

He added that his soreness is not as bad has he thought. Conley looked bothered by his right hamstring strain in his one minute of action in the fourth quarter following Thursday's injury. Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol are great, but the loss of Nick Calathes (suspension) makes Conley Memphis' most indispensable player.

Coach Dave Joeger said in Thursday's post-game interview that he's "hoping" Mike Conley (hamstring) can play in Game 7 on Saturday.

Conley was limping in the locker room after the game due to his right hamstring strain which he suffered in the second half tonight. Conley returned to the game for just 56 seconds after the injury and he was clearly at less than 100 percent. He's very likely to be limited in practice on Friday and the team should have an update on his status. If he's not going to play, the Grizzlies will be in huge trouble with only Beno Udrih left at point guard.

Mike Conley turned in a great game during a huge 98-95 win on Thursday with 20 points, five boards, three assists, two steals, two 3-pointers and one turnover on 8-of-14 from the field.

The Thunder may have made a mistake by not putting Russell Westbrook on Conley for a sizable portion of this game and Conley played mistake-free for basically the whole game. Conley is more well known for his output in steals, but his offense came around nicely this year with a solid effective field goal percentage of 50.0. Even though he missed nine games in the regular season, Conley was still able to put up third-round value in standard fantasy leagues.

Mike Conley has won the NBA's Joe Dumars Trophy for sportsmanship.

Conley received 77 first-place votes out of a possible 334 and finished just ahead of Jeff Green and Channing Frye. The award is voted on by the players and is given to the player who reflects the ideals of sportsmanship, including ethical behavior, fair play and integrity. Despite the fact that he's locked into a playoff battle with the Thunder right now, this award comes as a nice personal reward for Conley as it was voted on by his peers.

Mike Conley scored 19 points and handed out 12 assists with just two turnovers as the Grizzlies stole Game 2 in Oklahoma City on Monday.

This gives Conley 23 assists with three turnovers in the series, which is even more impressive since the Thunder forced 14.5 turnovers per game during the regular season. His two errors were costly ones late in overtime but the Grizzlies still got the victory behind admirable execution and a gutsy team effort on both ends.

The Grizzlies don't plan to make any big adjustments for Game 2 vs. the Thunder on Monday.

Head coach Dave Joerger said the Grizzlies "just need to be decisive and get our spacing correct," and his sentiments were echoed by virtually every player interviewed after the game. They'll need to be more energetic and forceful from the opening tip on Monday to even the series at 1-1 and shift home court advantage back to Memphis for Game 3.
