Pacers forward Danny Granger experienced a little soreness in his strained calf after his 3-on-3 work on Tuesday, so the team held him out of practice on Wednesday afternoon, as Scott Agness reports.

"He worked hard yesterday, kind of a 3-on-3 full practice, lot of full-court stuff - much more than he's done in over a month," said coach Frank Vogel. "[He] had some soreness in the calf so they're just being precautionary with it and decided not to push it."

At this point, the Pacers are in no rush to push Granger on the court and despite holding him out yesterday, he may be ready to practice on Thursday, just don't expect a prediction on when he'll be ready to play in an actual game.

After putting the final touches on their game prep for the Bucks, David West will take the lead as the team hosts over 650 men, women and children for the annual "Come to Our House" event. West and his wife, Lesley serve as the official hosts for the event held in the Entry Pavilion at BLF as Levy Restaurants prepares all of the Thanksgiving fixings with all of the leftovers going to Second Helpings.
