Team USA is back in action today when they take on Iran at noon ET on ESPN. 

After a day off to stew over a frustrating win against Brazil, the U.S. squad should be willing and able to run away from an undermanned Iran team. Iran is currently 1-2 in Pool B play with their win coming against 0-2 Tunisia. 

That should mean some playing time for Danny Granger who didn't get off the bench against Brazil. As a story in the links indicates, Coach K wasn't satisfied with the play off the bench against Brazil which is why he let his starters play the full second half.  Sounds like an opportunity for Granger to play his way up the rotation if he can take advantage of the playing time. Memphis big man, Hamed Haddadi is the lone familiar foe for Iran.
