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.
