Indianapolis, IN (Sports Network) - Indiana Pacers forward Danny Granger will
miss the remainder of the season to undergo knee surgery, the team announced
Granger, who had already missed the majority of 2012-13 season after
undergoing a procedure in October for patellar tendinosis, reappeared in the
Pacers' lineup on Feb. 25, but played in just five contests before his left
knee continued to give him soreness.
In a statement, the team said the decision to sideline the 6-foot-8, 228-
pounder for good was made after conservative treatment options could not
alleviate the discomfort. Granger is expected to be ready for training camp.
The New Mexico product averaged 18.7 points, five rebounds and 1.8 assists per
game last year after starting in all 62 of Indiana's contests.
