Indiana Pacers Could Use Danny Granger More Than Ever Right Now
The Indiana Pacers have gotten off to a solid start so far this season with a 26-19 record as they currently hold the No. 5 seed in the Eastern Conference playoff standings. Unfortunately, a recent three-game losing streak may be a reason for concern and make them anxious about one of their star players returning to the court for the first time this season–Danny Granger.
Indiana has been forced to play without their star forward all season as he’s been recovering from a knee injury, but they also want to be cautious about returning him to the lineup too soon. Obviously, the knee injury must be serious if he’s missed this many games already this season and they would rather wait it out to make sure he’s back at full strength instead of putting him at risk to re-injuring the knee.
When healthy, Granger has the potential to be one of the top forwards in the league, but there’s no telling what to expect from him when he does return to the lineup. There’s been talk about the Pacers trying to get him back in the lineup before All-Star Weekend rolls around, but nothing is set in stone just yet.
With the way things have turned out so far–Indiana may be better off just holding out until afterwards so he can rest up more. Plus, the Pacers would rather have him healthy enough for the playoffs–so it’ll be worth the wait for Granger.
