Granger out 3 months

Yahoo wrote:Indiana Pacers forward Danny Granger will miss three months after undergoing a procedure on his left knee, the team announced Thursday.

Granger's injury was described as left patellar tendinosis. The Pacers said he received an injection on Tuesday from Dr. James Andrews in Gulf Breeze, Fla.

Without Granger, the Pacers will be searching for offense to offset his loss. Granger averaged 18.3 points per game last season and led Indiana to the Eastern Conference semifinals. He has led the team in scoring the past five seasons.

Gerald Green had started at forward in Granger's absence before coach Frank Vogel turned to Sam Young this week.

The Pacers (2-2) play in Atlanta on Wednesday night.

ah, the quick evolution (and devolution?) of some nba careers:

granger's timeline:

solid value pick at 17! >>> wait a minute, this guy's an allstar caliber player! >>> can he be a superstar? is he better than say, melo?! >>> this guy shoots too much! >>> how are we going to unload this contract?!

I had high hopes for the Pacers this season. This is a huge blow... I suppose Paul George will continue picking up the slack?

You have ROSE in your fantasy team? The guy who might not play a single game this season?
