The good news for Memphis about Mike Conley spinal fracture is that it’s not as bad as it sounds. It’s not good, but it could be worse, others have bounced back from this same injury.
The real question is how far the Grizzlies will fall with Conley out — they are 19 points per 100 possessions worse when he sits this season. They lack point guard depth, and it doesn’t help that Chandler Parsons, James Ennis, and Brandon Wright are all out injured as well.
The challenges ahead for the Grizzlies is the topic of this latest PBT Extra video.
