The Indiana Pacers today announced that oft-injured former all-star Danny Granger is set to miss the opening weeks of the 2013-14 season.
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.
I think the Pacers will be relieved that it’s not a recurrence of the knee injury that sidelined him for virtually all of last season but at the same time, they must be concerned with the fact that he can’t make his way back onto the court for what seems like more than a few weeks at a time.
