SAN FRANCISCO - Memphis Grizzlies point guard Mike Conley has been upgraded from doubtful to questionable to play in Game 2 against the Golden State Warriors.

Grizzlies coach Dave Joerger said after the team's morning shootaround in San Francisco that if Conley plays Tuesday night, he will start. Conley has missed the last three games recovering from surgery to repair broken bones in his face.

Conley has been shooting and going through non-contact drills wearing a protective mask. The left side of his face is still visibly swollen.

The Grizzlies have started Nick Calathes and brought Beno Udrih off the bench the past three games. Joerger will likely stick with that rotation if Conley can't play.

The Warriors lead the second-round series 1-0.
