Pacers Have No Immediate Plan To Sign Replacement For Granger
While the Indiana Pacers have been linked to players such as Mickael
Pietrus and Josh Howard this week, they do not have immediate plans to
make a roster addition, according to a source.
It was revealed
earlier this week that Danny Granger will miss three weeks because of
knee tendinosis. The Pacers are 2-3 through their first five games. They
finished last season with the third-best regular season record in the
Eastern Conference and took an early lead in their semifinal series
against the eventual champion Heat.
With Granger out, Frank
Vogel has used a combination of Gerald Green and Sam Young at small
forward. Granger, an All-Star in 2009, is owed more than $13 million
this season. Granger is expected to remain around the team while he
rehabs his knee so that the training staff can monitor his progress.
