Granger Listed As Doubtful For Pacers Season Opener

New, comments

Well that didn't take too long to deflate the premiere of the new blue and gold squad.

Mike Wells, of the Indianapolis Star, tweeted this afternoon that Indiana Pacers star forward Danny Granger is now listed as doubtful for Wednesday's season-opening contest at Atlanta. Granger, who missed the past two days of practice, is reportedly nursing a bone bruise in his heel.

Granger joins veteran Jeff Foster as the only players questionable for the team's first outing of the season. The injury bug has struck just about every player on the roster at some point during the summer or preseason. If Granger and Foster are dressed in street clothes, they will join injured rookie Tyler Hansbrough and the recovering Mike Dunleavy. Granger played in 67 games last season.

I'm thinking that Granger won't let a bone bruise stop him from playing tomorrow night. But I also saw what appeared to be a horse mounting a cow when I was driving through the rural roads of Johnson County this morning. So, anything is possible. Stay tuned for more updates.
