Grizzlies’ Conley still out another two weeks

Mike Conley only played in 12 games in 2017-18.

The Memphis Grizzlies continue to be without starting point guard Mike Conley, as the veteran is still dealing with soreness in his left heel and Achilles.

Conley has been sidelined since Nov. 13, and on Nov. 29, the Grizzlies said Conley was expected to return in two to three weeks.

Memphis recently released a new injury update press release and it states that Conley continues to participate in therapy and treatment to alleviate soreness in his left heel, with a further update coming again in approximately two weeks.

Conley, 30, is averaging 17.1 points and 4.1 assists on the season but has struggled with his shot (38.1 percent) and lateral movement due to the lower leg ailments.

The Grizzlies have the second worst record in the Western Conference at 9-21.
