Unfortunately no, not at present (10.10.1). Firstly, your MBP needs to support MST which is part of DisplayPort 1.2 - you can check your laptop's specifications as they may vary depending on which GPU option you went with when you purchased your MBP. Secondly, even if your hardware supports it (many recent MBPs do) Apple hasn't added support to OS X for ...

The [Mini] DisplayPort to HDMI adapters aren't just cables, they contain IC's that provide an HDMI interface. I don't know of any such adapter that works in the other direction.
You can use a USB Display Adapter. One like this could work. Some display adapters only support digital formats (HDMI, DVI-D...) so if your projector only supports analog signals (i.e. VGA) then make sure the adapter you get supports it. One limitation of USB display adapters is their limited bandwidth, and therefore limited resolution. For a ...
From EveryMac… This model supports a simultaneous maximum resolution up to 2560x1600 on two external displays via Thunderbolt. Alternately, it can support a single display up to 2560x1600 via Thunderbolt and a single 1080p display at up to 60 Hz, 3840x2160 at 30 Hz, or 4096x2160 at 24 Hz via HDMI. If you have 2 Thunderbolt ports, you can use 2 miniDP ...
