Conley has a bruised shoulder, which he says is sore but will not force him to miss games, Ronald Tillery of The Commercial Appeal reports.
Conley was magnificent on Monday night, scoring 19 points (6-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 6-6 FT) to go along with two rebounds, six assists and two steals in only 23 minutes while helping lead the Grizzlies to the top overall record in the NBA at 10-1.
