INDIANAPOLIS — Danny Granger tried to brush aside any new concerns about his injured left calf Monday.
Pacers fans can only hope he’s right.
Hours after the Pacers announced Granger would miss three weeks with a muscle strain, he walked out of practice with a smile and insisted this injury is nothing like the one that kept him out of action most of last season.
“It’s not terrible,” he said. “I can run up and down the court, but when I start jumping, it feels like a knot in my calf where I hurt it. They (the doctors) just said to sit out until I didn’t feel it.”
Granger missed all but five games with a tendon injury in his left knee, and there were big questions about his health throughout the Pacers’ busy offseason.
Indiana signed three free agents, hired two new assistant coaches, brought Larry Bird back to the front office and traded for Luis Scola. The Pacers are hoping the moves pay off after they pushed Miami to Game 7 in the Eastern Conference finals.

23 points. That is how close last year’s Pacers were to making their first NBA Finals appearance since 2000. That’s how close Frank Vogel, Paul George and company were to shocking the world and upsetting the defending champion Miami Heat. Can this year’s team do what last year’s couldn’t and win the franchise’s first NBA […]
