Indiana Pacers’ Danny Granger Has Successful Surgery

+Read full article

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

On Thursday morning, Danny Granger underwent successful knee surgery. The procedure will sideline the former starting forward, but Granger is expected to be ready to return to the Indiana Pacers in time for the start of next season’s training camp.

Granger’s troubled season may now be officially over, but all the trouble will be worth it, if the former NBA All-Star and most improved player can come back to full strength for the Pacers next season.

The loss of Granger for the remainder of this season is not much of a shock to the system of the Pacers. Although the severity of Granger’s injury was troubling news, not much will change for this team, now that their team captain is officially lost for the season. The Pacers played the majority of this season without Granger, so not having him in the mix doesn’t really effect the chemistry of the team as it is right now.

Granger only played in a handful of games earlier in the year, before aggravating the knee injury after attempting a jump shot. Even when he did take to the court, Granger played in limited minutes coming off of the bench. The Pacers were looking forward to getting their former starting small forward back on the rotaion in some capacity, but that will have to wait until next season.

At least now Indiana can focus on their roster as it is. There’s no use in holding out hope for Granger to return. The Pacers have to prepare for the playoffs, and they will need as much as they can get from every man they have.
