Having said that, injury concerns were a well-known issue with Conley prior to the trade, so it's not like it's a total surprise that it happened. This is slowly turning into the worst-case scenario of the trade outcome. Maybe Exum will get some burn.
Yes, and even though Conley has been shooting poorly, I think I've seen stats indicating that we are generally better off with him on the court than off the court. I was hoping that during his most recent time off the court with injury that he saw some things from the bench that would help him gel more going forward. Conley's six assists in just 19 minutes of action in his one game back was encouraging, though he had another poor shooting night.
