On Wednesday, the Utah Jazz acquired point guard Mike Conley from the Memphis Grizzlies in exchange for Grayson Allen, Jae Crowder, Kyle Korverand a pair of first-round draft picks. While Conley's never made an All-Star team, he's been an excellent point guard for Memphis for years and is coming off a 2018-19 season in which averaged a career-high 21.1 points per game for the Grizzlies while adding in 6.4 assists, 1.3 steals, and 3.4 rebounds. Conley will slide into the starting role occupied by Ricky Rubio last year, and while his scoring could take a step back as he won't need to be the primary scoring option on a team that has Donovan Mitchell, the Jazz are set up great for Conley to put up his best season in terms of assists. Less need to be the team's main scorer can also allow Conley to refocus on defense and gives him the potential to get his steals average back up around two per game. All in all, Conley's in a good spot, even if his scoring drops by a few points per game back to the high teens.
Memphis Grizzlies guard Mike Conley (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Portland Trail Blazers. The Grizzlies are tanking at this point in the season, so it wouldn't be surprising to see Conley sit out the rest of the way. Delon Wright and Tyler Dorsey will soak up the extra playing time. Wright is the better fantasy option out of the two.
Memphis Grizzlies point guard Mike Conley has been ruled out for Sundays game against the Los Angeles Clippers due to left ankle soreness. Conley will have now missed four contests during March, as the Grizzlies have little incentive to suit him up when nursing an injury of any kind. Delon Wright will likely see an increased workload in his absence and become a highly-coveted DFS option. Conleys next chance to return comes Wednesday against the Portland Trail Blazers.
