Conley (Achilles) has been ruled out indefinitely and will be re-evaluated in two weeks, Peter Edmiston of the Memphis Commercial Appeal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Conley continues to deal with soreness in his Achilles and left heel and will undergo treatment over the next two weeks before being re-evaluated. It looks like his absence will extend beyond the two weeks, however, so it could be a while before the Grizzlies get their starting point guard back. In Conley's absence, Mario Chalmers and Tyreke Evans will continue to share ball-handling duties, with Evans benefitting the most, as he's posting his best numbers since his rookie season.

Conley (Achilles) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Pacers, Michael Wallace of Grizzlies.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Conley has been dealing with a sore Achilles for much of the season, but was unable to go through the team's morning shootaround and has now been ruled out entirely for Wednesday's contest. Coach David Fizdale mentioned that Conley is getting day-to-day evaluations and maintenance on the Achilles, so it appears he'll continue to be evaluated on a game-to-game basis moving forward. Conley's next opportunity to play will be Saturday against the Rockets, but in the meantime, look for Mario Chalmers and Tyreke Evans to benefit the most in his absence.

Conley did not go through morning shootaround and should still be considered questionable for Wednesday's game against the Pacers, Eric Hasseltine of the Grizzlies Radio Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Conley's status likely won't be determined until closer to tipoff. He's been battling an Achilles injury for much of the year, which has been affecting his play. He's shooting just 38.1 percent from the field and 31.2 percent from beyond the arc. If he ends up missing the contest, Mario Chalmers, Andrew Harrison and Tyreke Evans would seemingly be the main beneficiaries.

Conley is dealing with a sore left Achilles and is considered questionable for Wednesday's game against the Pacers.

EDGE Analysis

The Achilles has been bothering Conley for much of this season, already costing him one game at the start of November. He'll receive treatment over the next 24 hours or so and will then likely test it out during pregame warmups ahead of Wednesday's contest before a final decision is made on his availability. If Conley is ultimately held out, Mario Chalmers and Tyreke Evans would likely benefit the most.

Conley scored 20 points (6-15 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 6-6 FT) to go along with six assists, two steals and one block in 30 minutes during Tuesday's 98-97 win over the Trail Blazers.

EDGE Analysis

Conley's numbers are down across the board this season, but his scoring numbers are still excellent in the grand scheme of things as he's averaging 18.6 points and 2.1 three-pointers per game. He hasn't averaged less than 5.4 assists per game since the 2009-10 season, so expect his current average of 4.2 assists per game to correct itself soon.

Conley posted 23 points (9-17 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 2-3 FT), three assists, five rebounds, a steal and a blocked shot across 32 minutes in Sunday's 107-102 loss to the Lakers.

EDGE Analysis

Conley played well in the loss, though perhaps the biggest news relating to Conley on Sunday was the attendance of Kanye West, who has called Conley personally, saying he is a huge fan and that he's an underrated point guard. While no one is professing West is an expert, he is definitely correct that Conley often flies under the radar. It's no secret that the Grizzlies run their offense at an almost methodical pace, but it hasn't hampered Conley's output. At 6-4 the Grizzlies have tons of potential but a lot of their future relies on Conley to lead them.

Conley scored 22 points (8-18 FG, 4-9 3PT, 2-3 FT) to go along with one rebound, three assists and one steal over 33 minutes in Saturday's 113-104 win against the Los Angeles Clippers.

EDGE Analysis

Conley, a 26.1 percent three-point shooter, shot exceptionally well from three-point land, sinking four-of-nine attempts. In his first game back from an Achilles injury, the Memphis guard shot 44.4 percent from the field against the Clippers. Conley, a career 37.7 percent three-point shooter, looks to continue his long-range shooting turnaround against the Lakers on Sunday.

Conley (Achilles) will play and start during Saturday's game against the Clippers, Rob Fischer of Fox Sports Southeast reports.

EDGE Analysis

Conley missed Wednesday's game against the Magic with an Achilles injury, though went through portions of Friday's practice and is apparently feeling good enough to take the floor Saturday. With his return, Mario Chalmers and Tyreke Evans could both see dips in playing time.

Conley (Achilles), despite not being listed on the injury report, is a game-time decision for Saturday's game against the Clippers.

EDGE Analysis

Conley was able to go through portions of Friday's practice, though his participation seemingly wasn't decisive enough to rule him in or out in advance. In his absence Wednesday, Tyreke Evans dropped 31 points and four assists across 34 minutes off the pine while Mario Chalmers drew the start at point guard and finished with seven points (3-12 FG), five assists and four steals across 26 minutes.

Conley (Achilles) will be sidelined for Wednesday's game agaisnt the Magic, Phillip Dean of Fox Sports South reports.

EDGE Analysis

Conley's Achilles is seemingly still giving him significant discomfort, preventing him from taking the floor Wednesday. He should be considered day-to-day moving forward until more information emerges. In the meantime, Mario Chalmers, Andrew Harrison and Tyreke Evans are all candidates to see extended run at point guard and make for reasonable DFS options.
