Indiana Pacers’ Danny Granger to Miss Three Months

Indiana Pacers' Danny Granger Out Three Months

Michael Hickey-US Presswire

The Indiana Pacers entered the season with lofty expectations for what they were capable of doing this year however now some of those expectations may have hit a minor snag. On Wednesday, the Pacers announced that  their All-Star swingman Danny Granger will be sidelined for at least three months following an injection which he received on Tuesday in his left knee to treat patellar tendinosis.

The injection was performed by world renowned surgeon Dr. James Andrews in Gulf Breeze, FL and is a new procedure athletes are using to treat such an injury.

Granger originally injured the knee last season during the Pacers thrilling Eastern Conference Semi-Finals series with the eventual NBA champion Miami Heat and Granger has yet to make his season debut due to be sidelined with soreness in the knee. In September, Granger underwent blood-platelet treatment in order to attempt to heal his knee aliments however that was ineffective and the injection was then needed to cure his continuously sore right knee.

Granger was the Pacers leading scorer last season and has been so for most of his seven year NBA career; last season he averaged 18.7 points per game along with five rebounds and 1.8 assists per contest. Thus far this season the Pacers are just 2-2 without the All-Star in their lineup and will need to get bigger contributions out of players such as Paul George and Gerald Green until Granger is scheduled to return in February.

The Pacers next game comes Wednesday night when they will travel to Phillips Arena to take on the 1-1 Atlanta Hawks.
