Source: Pacers Have No Immediate Plan To Sign Replacement For Granger
While the Indiana Pacers have been linked to players such as Mickael Pietrus and Josh Howard this week, they do not have immediate plans to make a roster addition, according to a source.
It was revealed earlier this week that Danny Granger will miss three weeks because of knee tendinosis. The Pacers are 2-3 through their first five games. They finished last season with the third-best regular season record in the Eastern Conference and took an early lead in their semifinal series against the eventual champion Heat.
With Granger out, Frank Vogel has used a combination of Gerald Green and Sam Young at small forward. Granger, an All-Star in 2009, is owed more than $13 million this season. Granger is expected to remain around the team while he rehabs his knee so that the training staff can monitor his progress.
