Though Danny Granger was out and shooting around on the practice floor Tuesday afternoon, the Pacers star will continue to miss more from his injury-plagued 2012-13 season.
Granger, who has missed time due to a knee injury, will be out of the line-up for at least three more games this season.
“Danny is going to be re-evaluated at the end of this week,” said Pacers Head Coach Frank Vogel. “So he is going to be out the next three games. If people are anticipating him back sooner than that, than we are not there yet. He is going to be out tomorrow, and even if he is cleared by the end of the week, that is not him being back in game action right away. That’s when he is going to resume active activity.”
Granger has only played in five games this season, averaging 5.4 points in 14.8 minutes per game. Granger played eight minutes at home against Chicago on March 3rd, a game he did not score any points in.
The Pacers (39-14. 1st in Central Division) resume their schedule tomorrow night when they host the Minnesota Timberwolves (21-39) tomorrow night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
