Granger Checks Out OK After Examination At Hospital

It appears the injury Danny Granger suffered during Tuesday's win against Charlotte isn't as bad as it looked.

The Indiana Pacers announced this morning that Granger was immediately taken to the Methodist Hospital last night for examination. He had a CT scan of his head and neck and the results were negative. He was released following the examination. The Pacers also noted that he will seek further examination from team physicians. He is still set to miss tonight's game in Cleveland.

After suffering a blow to his upper right cheek late in the fourth quarter, Granger was barely able to make it off the court with help of teammates and coaches. The Indiana Pacers star looked dazed and confused after falling to the floor next to the bench while waiting for assistance to the locker room. No word yet on when he might return to the Pacers lineup.
