Grizzlies point guard Mike Conley out 6 weeks with fractures in his lower back


Mike Conley was having his best season as a pro, but the Grizzlies star point guard suffered what is described as a transverse process fracture in the vertebrae and will be out indefinitely.

Conley signed a new five-year, $153 million deal with the Memphis Grizzlies this summer.

Conley was averaging 19.2 points, 3.6 rebounds and 5.7 assists per game for the Grizzlies to begin the 16-17 season with a career high PER of 23.7.

Conley was limited to 56 games last season due to an Achilles injury.
