Danny Granger could return prior to the mid-February All-Star break. And Pacers coach Frank Vogel wants to work him into the lineup before the All-Star Game, according to the Associated Press. Granger, who has been out all season with a patellar tendinosis in his left knee, is a go for full-contact practices. Now would be the time to stash Granger if he's available in your league (Granger is owned in 80 percent of Yahoo leagues). George Hill injured his shoulder in Friday's win over the Miami Heat. Hill played 35 minutes, scored 12 points (4-9 FG, 2-3 FT), with two 3-pointers, two rebounds, two assists and four steals. If he can't play, D.J. Augustin will be a good spot start. Lance Stephenson made 6-of-11 shots for 15 points, two 3-pointers, three rebounds, four assists and a steal. He's played well in his previous two games, but his value will plummet once Granger returns.   George Hill injuries his shoulder when Wade slaps him across it on his drive.
