Indiana Pacer's Danny Granger is reportedly experiencing soreness in his left knee and will be out indefinitely, meaning the organization does not know how long it will take for him to return. It could be weeks, or days. The team had been cautious with Granger throughout the preseason, and also tried a platelet-rich plasma injection last month in order to quell the pains. According to Curt Cavin of the Indy Star, the team has start newly acquired Gerald Green over Granger, who will remain on the bench. Coach Frank Vogel provided his input.
“It’s a limiting type of pain,” Vogel said. “He can run and jump and play, but he’s limping and a little gimpy. He lacks explosiveness.”Granger has been the star for the Pacers for years now, and his presence and 18.7 points per game will surely be missed. The injury first came on apparently on a layup attempt against the Bulls last Friday. Gerald Green, who exploded onto the scene with his tremendous dunks last season in New Jersey, will be replacing Granger in the lineup. Coach Vogel expressed confidence in Green based on preseason and training camp.
