Granger Danger

Postby RedHopeful » Tue Oct 30, 2012 7:23 pm

Being cautious with Danny Granger’s sore left knee in the NBA’s preseason didn’t help the pain go away. Neither did last month’s platelet-rich plasma injection.

The Indiana Pacers finally decided Tuesday to sideline their leading scorer indefinitely pending more medical opinions.

The Pacers will open the season tonight in Toronto with free agent acquisition Gerald Green starting in Granger’s small forward spot. Green played extensively in the team’s seven preseason games, starting four and averaging 12.3 points.

But the loss of Granger, who injured the knee in last season’s Miami series and tweaked it in an off-season workout, can’t be understated, and coach Frank Vogel said there’s no timetable for his return.

“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 Indiana’s leading scorer the past five seasons, averaging 18.7 points last season. He tried to play in the two most recent preseason games, but he came up limping in last week’s home loss to Chicago.

Supposedly he felt a sharp pain in the game against CHI and it hasn't gone away. Gerald Green gets a sizable boost, but I generally like the opportunity for the rest of the starters too.

Called it.

I'm sad I have my man Paul George in only one league, but in that league I have both PG and Gerald Green.

Been trying to trade for a big so probably a good time after a few good games to shop Green in a combo deal for a big.

Any updates by any chance? I'm trying to make a decision ASAP. I'm holding this unknown return Danny Granger and 6-8 weeks return Amare.

It worries me that it has been bothering him over the summer and while its only "knee soreness" who knows what it could lead to. I recently read that the Pacers haven't ruled out serious surgery yet and if that's the case I rather move on then linger around waiting

The Indiana Pacers announced that Danny Granger received an injection Tuesday to treat left patellar tendinosis. The procedure was performed by Dr. James Andrews in Gulf Breeze, Fla.

Team medical personnel are looking at a recovery time of approximately three months. Further updates will be provided when appropriate.

For those who haven't already done so, it is time to drop Granger.

This is absolutely heart breaking. I guess there goes Danny Granger. :~(

Edit: Unless someone thinks he is worth holding onto in a 12man for 3-months.....

I can't foresee any reason to hold onto him in H2H. He is out 3 months, then what? How many games until he is back to his beastly self, if at all?
