Memphis Grizzlies point guard Mike Conley will likely miss the remainder of the season with an Achilles injury, reports The Memphis Commercial-Appeal’s Ronald Tillery.
Conley, 28, was originally ruled out for 3–4 weeks earlier this month with Achilles tendinitis after an exam revealed the injury. However, Conley was re-evaluated by team doctors last week and has been advised not to return to the court this season.
In 56 games during the 2015–16 campaign, Conley has averaged 15.3 points and 6.1 assists for Memphis.
The Grizzlies sit three games in front of the ninth-place Houston Rockets with just five games remaining in their regular-season slate.
