NBA Playoffs 2014, Mike Conley injury: Grizzlies’ point guard leaves with hamstring strain


A bad night may have gotten even worse for the Memphis Grizzlies during the third quarter of game 6 of their first round series against the Oklahoma City Thunder Thursday night.

Not only did the Thunder defeat the Grizzlies 104-84 to force a game 7, but they lost point guard Mike Conley to a hamstring injury in the third quarter.

According to Chris Vernon of The Chris Vernon Show in Memphis, Conley tried to play but was clearly limping.

According to Royce Young of CBS Sports and Daily Thunder, Conley tried to return to the game, but he was taken back to the locker room.

The TNT broadcast called the injury a “mild hamstring strain.” It does not seem like a severe injury, but his health for Saturday’s game 7 is certainly a huge concern.
