Mike Conley's injury not looking as bad as it did Tuesday night, could be back before All-Star break

Hallelujah! There is great new coming out of FedexForum this evening:

I'm sure I'm not alone when I say this: I did not expect Mike Conley to be back before the All-Star break WUT?!?!

Mike Conley is a warrior, like many players on this Memphis Grizzlies team right now. He rolled his ankle up like a freakin' Meximelt, but Mike probably has a few things going for him, A) he's in tremendous shape - I'm talking in the top 1% of the world, B) tying in with that - Mike only has a buck eighty-five (185lbs) to bring down on that ankle, C) tying back in to his elite athleticism - Mike has incredible reflexes and reaction time that probably saved him a few milliseconds of full body weight on those ligaments/muscle/bone that are not typically weight bearing.

No, Mullinax, I don't think we'll have to give up Ed Davis for Steve Blake (wiping sweat off brow.)

Like my friend Mark McCleskey said on Twitter: exhale.

And breath back in the sweet air of Memphis basketball in February.
