Mike Conley Believes Sitting In Loud Arena Was 'Big Step' For Recovery

May 4, 2015 8:25 AM

Mike Conley's status remains uncertain as he recovers from a facial injury that has sidelined him indefinitely, but the Memphis Grizzlies guard sat on the bench in the Game 1 loss at Golden State.

"Today was a big step being able to go in front of the crowd and the loud noise," Conley said. "I did all right. All the horns and stuff really aggravated it. But it was all right.

"It's very tough because I know how much I mean to the team and the organization. We understand we have a chance with the team that we have put together. Our time is now."

Conley did light shooting drills and running prior to Game 1 while wearing a protective mask.

"The worst part immediately coming out of surgery … was I had not ate and I was throwing up, throwing up and throwing up the whole rest of the day," Conley said. "It was because of the pain meds because I needed them because of the pain. I couldn't deal with the pain. I couldn't deal with throwing up. I couldn't eat.

"I felt weak. I felt like I had a fever. …I was like, 'This is the worst feeling in the world.' I felt like that for two days and then I was able to get up for the game on Wednesday. It was the first time I was able to go to the [arena] and just watch the guys."
