Frank Vogel was adamant about his excitement on the return of former All-Star Danny Granger to the Indiana Pacers' lineup.

“It’s really exciting," Vogel said on a radio show. "Danny is on schedule, looks really good, he’s making progress each week and we’re hoping that were going to be having a full-strength Danny Granger this year to add to this team that made a lot of noise last year.”

Granger missed most of last season with knee issues.

Granger is expected to bolster an already deep Pacers team.
