The Memphis Grizzlies just received word that Conley will be out for several weeks due to a back injury. That now leaves Memphis without its star point guard, Randolph, James Ennis, Chandler Parsons, Brandan Wright and Jordan Adams. Not to mention Carter is questionable with a hip injury. The Grizzlies are the same team they were at the end of last season with all of their injuries. The Raptors should be able to win this game by double digits.
