Indiana Pacers head coach Frank Vogel says injured forward Danny Granger is "on schedule" regarding his return for the 2013-14 NBA season.

Indiana Pacers head coach Frank Vogel says Danny Granger is on schedule for a return to the 2013-14 NBA season.

Vogel recently spoke about this in an interview on the "the Grady and Big Joe Show" on ESPN 1070 the Fan, via Pacers.com's Scott Agness. 

"It's really exciting. Danny is on schedule, looks really good, he's making progress each week and we're hoping that we're going to be having a full-strength Danny Granger this year to add to this team that made a lot of noise last year." 

To recap, Granger sustained a jumper's knee injury last season which required him to undergo surgery last April. Prior to the procedure, Granger saw action in only five games for Indiana, averaging a career-low 5.4 points, 1.8 rebounds and 0.6 assists per game. 

The injury surfaced as early as November 2012 with reports saying Granger was predicted to miss three months of action. 

In spite of Granger's injury-plagued campaign, the Indiana Pacers enjoyed their most successful season in years, finishing at 49-32 and pushing the eventual champions Miami Heat to the brink in the 2013 Eastern Conference Finals. 

Any rumor of Granger becoming expendable was put to rest when Pacers team president Larry Bird stated in a June 27 Indianapolis Star article that he will not trade him. 

Kurt Helin of NBC Sports predicts the 30-year-old forward, who has had two knee surgeries, will not be "quite the same player" and is faced with the issue of whether he'll come off the bench or start for the Pacers. Helin notes the bigger question is if Granger is willing to accept a lesser role with Indiana upon his much-anticipated return. 

Granger, the 17th overall pick of the 2005 NBA Draft, has career averages of 18.1 points, 5.2 rebounds and two assists per game.

After Decades of Being the Same, Cup Holders Are Drastically Changed to Finally Make Sense - Beverages Are No Longer Held from the Bottom in Stationary Cylinder Openings
The Maksimatic Spill-Preventing Cup Holder uses centripetal force to prevent beverages from spilling utilizing a 360 degree swiveling joint which allows the cup holder cylinder openings to tilt up to a 27 degree angle full-circle. No other cup holder in the world achieves this let alone is designed to do anything like this. The Maksimatic is as reliable as the laws of physics themselves and changes a design used for decades. This seems to be the next logical step in cup holders.
