The Memphis Grizzlies will be without its starting point guard for the rest of the season. Mike Conley, the team announced on Saturday, will undergo season-ending surgery on his left heel.

Conley has not played in a game this season since November 13th, 2017. The operation will “smooth a small bone protrusion in his left heel that continues to cause pain and soreness.”

The 30-year-old, who has spent his entire career with the team, is expected to be ready for the 2018-19 season.

He has played in just 12 games this season. In those games, he averaged 17.1 points, 2.3 rebounds, 4.1 assists, 1.0 assists and 0.3 blocks per game

This will be the fewest games that he has played in a season in his career. His previous fewest was 53 games during his rookie campaign in 2007-08.

In addition to an update on Conley Jr., the team also announced injury updates for forwards Chandler Parsons, JaMychal Green and James Ennis III. Parsons, according to the team, made progress this week after having soreness in his right knee.

Parsons is listed as day-to-day. He is also being slowed by an illness that is hampering his recovery.

Green continues to deal with a right ankle sprain. He is expected to return within the next week, according to the team.

Ennis III, like Green, is expected to return within the next week. He’s dealing with a right calf strain.
