NBA: Pacers F Danny Granger to Miss 3 Weeks With Calf Injury

Indiana Pacers forward Danny Granger, who missed 77 games last season with a jumper's knee injury, will miss the first three weeks of the 2013-14 NBA season with a calf injury he sustained in the preseason.

Indiana Pacers forward Danny Granger will miss the first three weeks of the 2013-14 NBA season with a calf injury. 

The Pacers' official website listed the details on Oct. 28.

"Indiana Pacers forward Danny Granger will miss approximately three weeks as he rehabilitates a strained left calf injury sustained in the preseason. The length of time is a precautionary measure as the team wants to ensure Granger is physically ready to play in light of missing all but five games last season due to his knee injury.

"The rehabilitation time is strictly related to the calf injury." 

Candace Buckner of the Indianapolis Star points out the calf injury was sustained in the first quarter of a preseason game against the Dallas Mavericks on Oct. 16. He aggravated it when the Pacers played the Chicago Bulls two days later. 

In spite of the injury, Granger remains unfazed. 

"It's no big deal. I mean, honestly, it coudl be a week. It's just -- we want to give myself some time. Like I said, it's a calf strain. I'd rather (the injury) be that than something else, honestly.

"Oh no, it's not discouraging at all. It's a muscle strain. When you're dealing with a muscle strain, it's a lot different than if you're dealing with a joint injury. My knee's been fine, I'm very happy. I had a muscle strain -- no big deal."  

With Granger sitting out an estimated seven or eight regular-season games to kick off the season, Lance Stephenson is expected to start for the Pacers, per the Associated Press.

Do Miami Heat Have Enough Depth to Survive Eastern Conference?

Aug 27 2014 2:30pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Miami Heat are not in recovery mode, not in a rebuilding period. Based on the decisions made after LeBron James bolted for the Cleveland Cavaliers, it's clear that the Heat have designs on contending even without James in the lineup. While most of the pressure in that regard will fall in the laps of Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and Luol Deng, who must lead the team and pick up their individual production, the Heat's potential Achilles ...

Are Miami Heat a Playoff Lock or a Fringe Team Next Season?

Aug 13 2014 8:59pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Miami Heat will have their work cut out for them next season. LeBron James’ free-agency departure for the Cleveland Cavaliers has left the team weakened, which means the Eastern Conference is no longer the cakewalk it once was for the Heat. Miami made four consecutive trips to the Finals during James’ four seasons with the franchise. The four years prior? Three first-round exits and a 15-win campaign. The Heat won’t be as b ...

Do LA Clippers Still Need to Upgrade Small Forward Spot?

Aug 12 2014 2:50pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Los Angeles Clippers added talent and depth this offseason, but the failure to address the small forward position could ultimately come back to haunt them in the postseason. On the surface, it's hard to argue with the decisions Doc Rivers and the Clippers made this offseason. Signing Spencer Hawes as a third big man was a great move, particularly since not many expected him to be available for the mid-level exception. Taking shoot ...

Counting out Miami Heat in Wide-Open Eastern Conference Is a Major Mistake

Aug 4 2014 7:38pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Life after LeBron James won't be easy for the Miami Heat, but his exit shouldn't be considered a harbinger of the franchise's decline. Thanks to Pat Riley's rapid response to what might otherwise have been a broader crisis, the organization quickly re-signed stars Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade. It also added 10-year veteran Luol Deng to ensure some stability on a wing that will nevertheless miss LBJ dearly. Around the periphery, Miami surrounded its core with pr ...

Falk: Trading Turner Wasn't Blockbuster For 76ers

Evan Turner's agent, David Falk, believes the Philadelphia 76ers didn't make an expecially strong trade in dealing his client to the Indiana Pacers. “I don’t think it’s about expectations,” Falk said. “I think he and Jrue Holiday were terrific together. And we had asked Philadelphia his entire fourth year, repeatedly, we urged him to please not t ...

Did Miami Heat Do Enough to Retool in Post-LeBron James Era?

Jul 20 2014 10:56pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Miami Heat appeared to be in serious trouble in the immediate aftermath of LeBron James' announcing his decision to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers in a letter posted July 11 on SI.com. Norris Cole represented the only player with a guaranteed contract on Miami's roster, and the only free agents the Heat had agreed to terms with were Josh McRoberts and Danny Granger. More importantly, though, it appeared Chris Bosh would sign ...
