The Indiana Pacers are back in prime time on Friday night when they host LeBron James and the Miami Heat for a national television audience on ESPN.

No doubt the Fieldhouse will be rocking on Friday night, but there was also some interesting action on Thursday when Danny Granger continued ramping up his activity in the team's practice. Scott Agnes reports the details.

There's nothing earth-shattering going on with Danny Granger, but his progress continues to be encouraging. For the first time Thursday, Granger played about 20 minutes of half-court live action during practice. He is now doing something every day and doesn't appear to be in any real pain. He has increased his activity level while decreasing the amount of rest in between.

"We're still hoping to see him in uniform before the All-Star game but there's no guarantees with that," Vogel said.
