Although Mike Conley is listed as questionable for the Memphis Grizzlies as they host the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday night, the word from the mouth of the man himself leads us to believe that one should not hold one's breath on seeing Conley rejoin the action.
Mike Conley did not participate in shootaround this morning. I asked him if he'll play tonight, told me "I don't think so."— Ari Alexander (@AriA1exander) March 14, 2015
I'll bring out the silver lining here in two-fold homerdom: 1) Mike still really needs the rest to be able to give Memphis the final push it's looking for in the coming weeks, and 2) Mike played really poorly against the Bucks when they faced them earlier in the season. In fact, everyone for the Grizzlies played pretty poorly in that one, besides Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol, who, if you missed it, are both healthily fuming after being forced to sit out in Washington on Thursday.
Beno Udrih will likely get the start at PG tonight, and he's been doing some extra work to hopefully give the Grizzlies' starters a lift to open the game.
And off the bench Memphis will have Nick Calathes, a feisty guy who actually recorded his career high in points (22) against the Bucks in Memphis last season.
