The Memphis Grizzlies have been without the services of veteran guard Mike Conley for the last several games due to a sore Achilles tendon.

It is an injury that doesn't have a set designation as to how much time he will miss, as he was ruled out indefinitely just over a week ago. After some time since that announcement was made, head coach David Fizdale stated on on Sunday that he doesn't expect Conley to be back in the near future, according to Clay Bailey of the Associated Press.

Mike Conley Jr. has been beyond a consistent source of reliability for the Grizzlies this season as he is averaging 17.1 points, 2.3 rebounds, and 4.1 assists through 14 games played with starts in all but two of them. His absence created a huge void for his team to fulfill, especially after dropping seven games in the row, pushing them out of the playoff picture.

With him expected to be out a bit longer, the Grizzlies will have to turn to a few veterans, namely Tyreke Evans, Mario Chalmers, and Ben McLemore, to collectively make up that production. It will also require Marc Gasol to continue being the primary source of offense as he's averaging a team-best 19.1 points per game entering Sunday's contests against the Brooklyn Nets.

Unless the front office makes any significant moves, this will remain the plan for the Grizzlies while Mike Conley Jr. is on the mend.
