Danny Granger Near Return; Would Greatly Improve Already Strong Bench

Marc Lebryk-USA TODAY Sports

Danny Granger was ready to come back from a knee injury that held him out almost all of last season, only to strain his left calf causing him to miss the first few weeks of this season. Well, a little over two weeks in, Granger has begun practicing, but is still sore in his calf.

According to Scott Agness of Pacers.com, Granger practiced Tuesday, but was held out today.

“Ran up and down, practiced for about an hour, (and) felt good,” Granger said. “Had a little soreness in my calf today so they gave me today off and we’ll see how I feel tomorrow.”

Head coach Frank Vogel also added Granger participated in “kind of a 3-on-3 full practice” Tuesday.

Granger said he feels like he is on pace for a return next week, which is obviously a good sign for the undefeated Indiana Pacers.

He is a big part of the team and can add even more depth to Indiana’s strong bench assuming Vogel decides Lance Stephenson is more worthy of the starting spot. Granger said he just wants to help the team win in the past, so where ever he plays, he should be able to improve the Pacers as long as he stays healthy.

Indiana is off to a great start without him, but having a great scorer and defender like Granger could make them even better and harder to beat. It will surely be interesting to see when Danny actually returns, if he can stay healthy, if he starts or comes off the bench, and how much he will truly help the team.
