Pacers Links: Granger will decide when he's ready to return for Pacers

Michael Hickey-US PRESSWIRE

The Pacers forward could return to action on Wednesday against Charlotte if he feels up to it after a full practice on Tuesday.

Danny Granger will ultimately decide whether he's ready to play against the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday night or if he wants to wait until after the All-Star break to return.

Granger went through a full practice on Tuesday and assuming there are no set backs when he wakes up on Wednesday, Frank Vogel indicated he will leave it up to how Granger feels about playing on Wednesday, according to this AP report.

After watching the former All-Star go through a second full practice Tuesday, coach Frank Vogel told reporters that Granger looked a ''little rusty'' and that the Pacers were eager to finally get him back on the court.

''My message to Danny is that we don't want you to come back unless you feel you're ready to come back,'' Vogel said. ''So if he's not there yet, we don't want to push it. We'll wait.''

A few minutes off the bench against Charlotte could be a perfect way for Granger to resume his return the NBA action, so hopefully he arrives at the Fieldhouse on Wednesday ready to give it a go. Equally important is that all of Granger's teammates show up at the Fieldhouse ready to go because they need to take down the Bobcats to head into All-Star weekend on a winning note.
