Danny Granger is hoping to return to the Indiana Pacers' lineup on Friday against the Charlotte Bobcats.

"There's a good chance. A very good chance," Granger said. "I'm working on it everyday.

"I'll have a minutes limit, strictly because I have to play my way into shape. We don't have enough practice for me to practice my way into shape. It's literally going to be in games where I am playing where I get in shape."

Granger has missed every game this season due to a calf injury.

"Right now I'm getting back in shape," Granger said. "My shot feels great."
