Mike Conley continues to work himself back into game shape after missing most of last season and scored 11 points (no 3s) to go with three assists, three rebounds, and a steal in 27 minutes in Friday's 120-110 victory over the Hawks.
It's going to take some time for Conley to get up to speed as he's no longer a spring chicken and has a lot of NBA miles on his body. Aside from his rhythm being off, he looked to be fully recovered from his left heel surgery. As with fellow veteran teammate Marc Gasol, we'd expect the Grizzlies to try to take it easy on Conley so his minutes and production look to take a little hit but not enough that he places outside the top-50 in 8/9-cat.
