Report: Conley and Parsons could return this weekend

The freaking cavalry could be arriving for the Memphis Grizzlies

NBA: Orlando Magic at Memphis Grizzlies Justin Ford-USA TODAY Sports

The Memphis Grizzlies could have James Ennis, Mike Conley, and Chandler Parsons back on the court sooner rather than later.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski and Yahoo! Sports, with the possible return of Conley, Ennis, and Parsons, the Memphis Grizzlies have waived point guard Toney Douglas to make room for a spot on the roster.

Conley suffered a back injury just over two weeks ago and was expected to miss six to eight weeks. It was originally reported that Conley would be re-evaluated after a month.

According to Wojnarowski, the Grizzlies starting point guard has made significant progress. So much progress that he could return for the game against the Sacramento Kings — which occurs this weekend.

This good be good or bad for the Memphis faithful.

Here’s why:

1.) The injury wasn’t as serious from the initial diagnosis.

2.) The injury is still serious and could end up even more serious if he is rushed back too quickly.
