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.

Evan Turner swivels around in the black chair in front of his locker. He’s in the far left of the Celtics’ locker room, immediately adjacent to the video staff. “That play right there,” Turner says to a video guy, peering over the staffer’s shoulder and pointing at the film of the Celtics’ intrasquad scrimmage three days prior. The monitor shows Turner jump over a screen, preventing Phil Pressey from getting into the paint. “Footwork,” Turner says with a smile. Tonight, Turner wil ...

Why Miami Heat Will Be Worse Than Expected During 2014-15 Season

Oct 20 2014 6:13pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Miami Heat are typically projected to enjoy a fairly successful season in the first year of the post-LeBron James era.  ESPN's NBA Forecast (subscription required) has the defending Eastern Conference champions riding Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade to a 45-37 record, giving them the No. 5 spot in their half of the NBA. Similarly, Bleacher Report's Josh Martin sees the Heat winning 43 games and finishing one spot lower in the final standings.  USA Today's Adi Joseph ...

Is There Hope or Doubt for Danny Granger's Season with Miami Heat?

Oct 14 2014 1:51am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Danny Granger has been forgotten about...marginalized...left for dead by the hoops punditry. This is a typical way to lead into a story that purports to explain why we’re all wrong—that Granger was misguidedly downgraded, that he’s due for a comeback of grand proportions with the Miami Heat and that he’s about to make us all look foolish. This isn’t that kind of story, though. In this case, Granger’s been written off largely because he’s been pretty lousy lately and is likely to stay that way.  ...

Which Reclamation Project Is Most Critical to Miami Heat's Success?

Oct 7 2014 2:57pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

For the past four years, Miami Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra’s most important job was in compelling LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh to play to their respective superstar potentials. In other words, getting them to be who they are. This time around, the challenge couldn’t be more different: helping players like Luol Deng, Josh McRoberts and Danny Granger be better than they’ve been—at least recently. So which stands to be Spoelstra’s most daunting reclamation proj ...

The Miami Heat agreed upon just two contracts that run past the 2016 offseason with their deals for Chris Bosh and Josh McRoberts. While several Heat players, including Dwyane Wade, Luol Deng and Danny Granger have opt-out clauses for the 2015 offseason, Pat Riley indicated the focus is on 2016 and the infusion of significant salary-cap space throughout the NBA. "It could be next year," Riley said of a ...
