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.

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 fin ...

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’ ...

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 Spoelstr ...

Heat Anticipate Keeping Cap Flexibility For 2016

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 possible ...

Miami Heat Have No Choice but to Live and Die with Small-Ball Blueprint

Sep 23 2014 7:31pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

In the wake of LeBron James’ devastating departure, the Miami Heat had little choice but to retain Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade—to guarantee Erik Spoelstra’s “pace-and-space” philosophy remained as close to intact as possible. Ironically, Miami’s subsequent free-agent moves may have made Spoelstra’s small-ball system, rather than his stars, the team’s most indispensable commodity. With the NBA moving evermore steadily toward a overwhelmingl ...

Grading Each Position Going into Miami Heat's 2014 Training Camp

Sep 23 2014 2:29am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Let’s not mince words. The Miami Heat had a devastating summer. It started with an NBA Finals humiliation at the sure hands of the San Antonio Spurs—the most dominating offensive performance in recorded Finals history, according to ESPN’s Kevin Pelton—and it somehow got worse from there. LeBron James left for Cleveland, and with him, he took a credible possibility of the Heat winning a fifth consecutive Eastern Conference cro ...

How Miami Heat Can Hang onto Eastern Conference in 2014-15 Season

Sep 4 2014 1:35am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

After four years of being the most examined team in the NBA, the Miami Heat join the rest of the mere NBA mortals. LeBron James and his new-look Cleveland Cavaliers become the favorites in the Eastern Conference with the Chicago Bulls close seconds. But even though James is no longer posting up and kicking out in South Beach, the Heat are being overlooked as real contenders. Sure, you could write off this entire argument with the fact that Miami had the greatest player in ...

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 ...
