Found March 12, 2013 on NBA Injury News:
Indiana Pacers' Danny Granger will sit out the next three games due to a sore left knee according to Scott Agness, a beat writer for Pacers.com. He will be examined at the end of the week to see if he can return to action. Even if cleared, the earliest Granger will be able to play in next Monday against the Cleveland Cavaliers. However, even clearance before the Cavaliers game doesn't mean he is guaranteed to play.In the five games Granger has played this season, he wasn't much help. He averaged 14.3 minutes per game which resulted in a mere 5.4 points on 28.6% shooting. In addition, he grabbed just 1.8 rebounds and dished out 0.6 assists per game. Even his free throw shooting percentage diminished.As Granger continues to sit out games, the Pacers will continue to assert their dominance as the second seed in the East without their star player.Follow @hoopsinjurynews!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://www.nbainjurynews.com//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");

Pacers beat T-wolves behind Hibbert

Roy Hibbert knew he was going to get the ball. It was just up to him what he was going to do with it. It's been a slow process for the Indiana Pacers' center to playing up to expectations - a process that has stretched over the course of much of the season. However, when teammate Paul George told him before the game he was getting the ball, Hibbert capitalized by scoring...

Wolves looking to win back-to-back games

The Indiana Pacers have virtually no chance of catching the Eastern Conference leaders, but they still have plenty at stake. Coach Frank Vogel hopes his team remembers that when it seeks a fourth straight home win on Wednesday night facing the injury-plagued Minnesota Timberwolves. Looking to end Miami's 17-game winning streak and sweep the three-game season series, Indiana ...

Pacers given dose of reality by streaking Heat

I am firmly of the belief that the Indiana Pacers are better team now than the team they were when they twice beat the Miami Heat earlier this season. The problem is, this current Heat team is playing out of their minds. Combine that with home court for the Heat and a thirst for revenge -- the Pacers simply had no chance. Final score, 105-91, and the Pacers never got very close...
