The Grizzlies said Mike Conley would miss at least two weeks.

Then, they said he’d miss 2-3 more weeks.

Now?

Grizzlies week:

Conley continues to participate in therapy and treatment to alleviate soreness in his left heel, as he progresses towards returning to on-court activities. A further update will be provided in approximately two weeks.

It’s obviously concerning the Grizzlies keep pushing back Conley’s potential return date. They’ve been sinking without him.

Memphis (9-21) now has the NBA’s third-worst record, ahead of only the Hawks and Mavericks. It’s past time to think long-term – and Conley’s prognosis isn’t encouraging in that regard, either. The 30-year-old is owed $97,534,870 over the next three seasons. A lingering injury obviously won’t help his trade value.
