Mike Conley (heel surgery) expects to be a full go for 2018-19.
"Thankfully I had the surgery early enough to where I have a full summer of work and getting my body ready for an 82-game season," Conley said. His ADP should be way down after making it through just 12 games with 17.1 points, 4.1 assists and 2.3 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 2.0 triples on 38.1% shooting. He will be entering the third year of his five-year, $153 million deal, but carries a lot of risk because of his durability and the potential for Memphis to tank again. Apr 23 - 10:08 AM

Mike Conley (heel surgery) is no longer using crutches to get around.

Conley is hopeful to be ready by training camp of next year, but given the health issues he's experienced over the years, he'll be a risky guy to target on draft day.
Mar 14 - 1:22 PM

Mike Conley (Achilles) is targeting the 2018-19 training camp for his return.

"It’s been a tough time for him. This [surgery] will fix the heel 100 percent," Conley's father said. "He just wants to be able to train hard again this summer and be pain free. The good thing about this decision is everybody in the organization was in line. This decision is in everyone’s best interest." Conley is expected to resume physical activity two weeks after surgery and is looking at a recovery time of up to six months. With the Grizzlies tanking, don't be surprised if they give Kobi Simmons a long look down the stretch.

The Grizzlies announced on Saturday that Mike Conley will undergo season-ending surgery to "smooth a small bone protrusion" in his left heel.

Although the news isn't shocking, considering the Grizzlies have essentially already been eliminated from playoff contention, it's still obviously a tough blow for Memphis fans and Conley owners. GM Chris Wallace said that Conley "has been extremely diligent as we pursued multiple different approaches to alleviate the pain before deciding surgery was the best solution." Conley hasn't played since early November, but made some progress in his rehab. However, the "pain/soreness persisted." Conley is expected to make a full recovery prior to 2018-19 training camp. Andrew Harrison and Mario Chalmers will continue to divvy up minutes at point guard.
Jan 27 - 1:45 PM

Mike Conley (Achilles) will not play on Monday vs. the Lakers.

Conley did progress to 3-on-3 at practice last week, but he still doesn't have a timetable and we'll continue to list him as out indefinitely for the time being. The Grizzlies are 14th in the West, so they will take every precaution.
Jan 15 - 10:47 AM

Mike Conley (left Achilles) went through a 3-on-3 scrimmage after Thursday's practice.

Conley has taken part in limited contract drills for at least the past week, but he remains without a clear timetable to return -- he hasn't played since getting hurt on Nov. 13. The Grizzlies are also tied for the worst record in the Western Conference, and they could be sellers at the trade deadline, so there are a lot of moving pieces here. At least he continues to ramp up his activity in practices.
Jan 11 - 5:09 PM

Speaking with the media on Friday, Mike Conley (Achilles) said that he's not sure of a definitive timetable for his return.

Conley did increase his activity at practice this week, but he hasn't taken full contact yet and he said he's been battling soreness. He did say that he fully expects to play again this season, but this is getting more and more frustrating for his fantasy owners. We'd like his rest-of-season outlook a lot better if the Grizzlies were somewhat competitive in the West.
Jan 5 - 8:55 PM

Mike Conley (Achilles) will not play vs. the Wizards on Friday.

Conley did go through limited contact during Thursday's practice, but the Grizzlies have yet to provide a clear timetable for his return. With Andrew Harrison (shoulder) also banged up, and Memphis just 0.5 games out of the cellar in the West, they can't get Conley back soon enough.
Jan 4 - 6:43 PM

Mike Conley (Achilles) was able to go through limited contact drills at Thursday's practice.

There's still no timetable, but the Grizzlies are expected to provide an update later today. He was ruled out for another two weeks back on Dec. 18, so hopefully we'll get some good news this time around. Stay tuned.
Jan 4 - 2:03 PM

Mike Conley (left heel/Achilles) will not play vs. the Clippers on Tuesday.

Conley was ruled out for "at least" another two weeks on Dec. 18. We've reached the two-week mark, of course, so hopefully Memphis will provide a substantive update in the next few days. For what it's worth, he put in an "extensive" post-practice workout on Friday and has been ramping up his activity lately.

According to Ronald Tillery of the Memphis Commercial Appeal, Mike Conley (Achilles) "appears to have progressed strongly."

Conley has been ramping up his workload recently and was spotted going through a workout on Saturday before the Grizzlies played the Warriors -- he was getting shots up all over the floor and was even sprinting at times. The Grizzlies haven't updated his timetable since they said on Dec. 18 that he'd be out for another couple weeks, but we should have an update from the team on Monday or Tuesday.
Sun, Dec 31, 2017 12:02:00 PM

Mike Conley put in an extensive post-practice session on Friday in San Francisco.

Conley is apparently getting closer to a return from his achilles injury and says that he's been working out two hours a day, while also going through treatment on his heel as he prepares to return to action this season. The Grizzlies are terrible and will be a long shot to make the playoffs, but both Conley and the team appear to be determined for Conley to come back and play a big role. It will be interesting to see what kind of restrictions he has once he finally does play, as he's been out since Nov. 13. Andrew Harrison should continue to start in his place for now.

Mike Conley (Achilles) will miss at least another two weeks of action.

The Grizzlies have been sparse with the updates on Conley, and he remains without an official timetable to return. With the losses piling up in Memphis, there isn't much of an incentive to rush him back to the court, particularly if an early return could risk him further aggravating this injury. Tyreke Evans and Andrew Harrison will continue to start in that backcourt sans Conley, and Marc Gasol will flirt with a usage rate in the 30s.
Mon, Dec 18, 2017 04:55:00 PM

Mike Conley (Achilles) will remain on the sidelines for Wednesday's game against the Wizards.

Conley was hit with a rough 2-3 week timetable on November 29, but given we haven't had any reports of him ramping up his activities at practices, it looks like he probably won't get back until the end of Week-3 (December 20). Tyreke Evans will continue to start at the point with Conley unavailable, and it'll be Evans and Marc Gasol running the show on offense until he gets back.
Tue, Dec 12, 2017 05:07:00 PM

Mike Conley (Achilles) said he won't return until he's 100 percent.

"[Doctors] told me the Achilles can heal fully. I just have to give it time," Conley said. "I rush things a lot and when I come back ... [in the past] I might withhold that from the trainers to try and get on the court. I’ve done that over the years. Right now, I’m trying to do the smart thing, which is frustrating." He was doing some on-court work recently and added that he's taking things day-by-day. His timetable isn't set in stone, but the Grizzlies said on Nov. 29 that he would be back in 2-3 weeks.
