Memphis Grizzlies star Mike Conley wasn’t able to fully participate in Team USA training camp this week as he continues to recover from heel surgery last January. But he says he’s feeling good and still on course to be ready by training camp in September.

“I’m doing really well. I wish I could’ve participated in contact stuff,” Conley said. “I think I could, but we’re being cautious and allowing me to get a full summer of rehab. I should be ready to go by training camp — I expect to be ready.”

The point guard played only 12 games last season due to Achilles and heel issues, and his injury was a key factor in the team firing coach David Fizdale and the team missing the playoffs for the first time in eight years.

Conley hasn’t been cleared for 5-on-5 work yet but is doing halfcourt work and taking some contact.
