The Grizzlies announced earlier this week that star point guard Mike Conley would undergo season-ending surgery on his troublesome left heel. Downer news, but the Grizzlies suck and are currently looking to flip assets like Tyreke Evans, so this isn’t a terrible time for a maintenance year.
And though you never want to see your $153 million, max player go under the knife, the surgery did provide comedy in the form of a doped up Mike singing Kansas’ hit song, “Carry On Wayward Son,” after waking from the procedure:

What’s next for Mike in the recovery process? Details from Grind City Media’s Michael Wallace:
“I’ll have surgery, and I’ll be non-weight bearing for a little bit,” Conley said Tuesday. “Then in a boot for some weeks after that, then back on my feet, hopefully by May (or) June, working out, back to preparing myself, getting my strength back, back to basketball shape and things that go with offseason training.”
