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.

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 woul ...

Jeremy Lin Visits Taipei
Chris Bosh will probably land on his feet, but Dwyane Wade's future is unclear. Where will the second-tier free agents land? LeBron James' decision to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers set the so-far delayed free agency train in motion. The second-tier free agents will now be seeing their offers come in, and it begins with James' old Miami Heat teammates. What happens to the rest of the Big 3? Chris Bosh still must decide whether to return to the Mi ...

Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks
This is where we are in the LeBron madness: The twitter handle that promotes all things LeBron – Team Lebron – has had some curious activity in the last 24 hours. The answer’s always in social media, right? It asked Twitter for some help! (Probably because LeBronJames.com was crashing all day Wednesday.) It followed the Akron Beacon-Journal and Ohio.com! (Because who you follow is clearly indicative of something.) Of course, this has to mean some ...

The Miami Heat and the NBA’s Double Standard of ‘Sacrifice’

Jul 8 2014 11:03am CDT | Source: Grantland

Charlotte Bobcats v Golden State Warriors
In a time of hushed meetings and amorphous potential offers, the Rockets have transformed a thought exercise into a real thing by presenting Chris Bosh a concrete choice: take a pay cut to stay in Miami, or earn your full maximum salary over a four-year deal in Houston. It’s not quite the ideal test case for a new collective bargaining agreement designed with perhaps one eye on engineering “competitive balance” by making it harder for teams ...

Heat Won't Operate With Cap Space, Must Stay Below $81M

Jul 7 2014 10:07pm CDT | Source: RealGM Basketball Wiretap

Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks
By reaching agreements with Josh McRoberts and Danny Granger with the non-taxpayer midlevel exception and biannual exception, the Miami Heat will not be operating as a team with cap space. With LeBron James, Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade and Udonis Haslem opting out, they conceivably could have created enough cap space to sign a bigger contract player if they would have renounced the Bird rights to those players and then re-signed them with cap space. By going over the cap, the Heat will als ...
