Grizzlies’ Conley out at least two weeks with heel, Achilles issue

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

Memphis Grizzlies point guard Mike Conley has been experiencing discomfort in his left heel and Achilles and the team announced today that he will miss some time as a result.

Conley is averaging 17.1 points and 4.1 assists on the season but has struggled with his shot (38.1 percent) and lateral movement.

Per the Grizzlies press release:

“Conley will undergo therapy and treatment to help promote healing and alleviate soreness in his left heel and Achilles following consultations with physicians and the Grizzlies’ medical staff. There is no timetable for his return at this time. Further updates will be provided in approximately two weeks.”

Memphis enters today with a record of 7-7, tied with the Oklahoma City Thunder for eighth place in the Western Conference.

With Conley sidelined, the Grizzlies will turn to veteran Mario Chalmers as their starting point guard.

  1. This guy has had an amazing career and IMHO b/c he plays for Memphis, hasn’t really gotten the accolades he deserves. However, he’s getting up there in age (30), amount of injuries and usage. Point Guards usually don’t last very far into the 30s due to the beating they take from the bigger players. Very rare were PGs like Kidd and Nash. I hope he can get better and continue as he’s been fun to watch over his career.
