    Granger's always been a tough player. Remember the game against Boston shortly after signing his $60 million dollar contract where he lost his front teeth? Ran off the court and came right back to shoot the free throws. It is killing him to sit on the bench and see this team struggle without him and I have no doubt that he would be out there if he felt like he could help and not hinder the team. Twelve weeks puts him back around 1/22. I know we are all a little concerned right now but I think Vogel putting Green back with the second unit will be a good thing and insertinf Young in the starting lineup will allow us to develop more of an inside-out game rather than dribble down, one pass and a bad jumper. Hibbert needs to assert himself offensively and that will free up our perimeter players for more drives to the basket.

    Now we get to see how this team learns and grows without Danny.

    It's growing on me as I am seeing the new freshmen come back to me in a month and I can give a better assessment. If we suck bad enough to get Tony Mitchell I would be so happy and sad I hate losing but that kid will be special IMO. He is as good of leaper as Gerald Green and actually knows how to play basketball and using his leaping ability. I just hope he keeps improving. He would be a perfect 4 for the Pacers IMO.

    “People talk about how quiet he [McKey] is, but he’s really been helpful. He gives a lot of insight to players in how to guard certain teams and what their weaknesses are. The whole team listens to him, and it makes my job a lot easier. Having players like him is what pro basketball is all about for me.” —Larry Brown

    Some kind of positive to this: The rest of the team improves, and we get a higher draft pick this off season.

    Big Negative: This was supposed to be the season we won the fans back...
    "We've got to be very clear about this. We don't want our players hanging around with murderers," said Larry Bird, Pacers president.

    Even if Danny Granger were to miss the entire season, which actually sounds plausible unfortunately, the Pacers are still a playoff team.

    There just aren't enough decent teams in the East to threaten that.

    Someone should probably update the thread title to reflect that Danny is out for three months. It's vague right now.

    How does Knee Pain he can play through lead to being out 3 months?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tendinosis

    Tendinosis, sometimes called chronic tendinitis, tendinosus, chronic tendinopathy, or chronic tendon injury, is damage to a tendon at a cellular level (the suffix "osis" implies a pathology of chronic degeneration without inflammation). It is thought to be caused by microtears in the connective tissue in and around the tendon, leading to an increase in tendon repair cells. This may lead to reduced tensile strength, thus increasing the chance of tendon rupture. Tendinosis is often misdiagnosed as tendinitis due to the limited understanding of tendinopathies by the medical community.[1] Classical characteristics of "tendinosis" include degenerative changes in the collagenous matrix, hypercellularity, hypervascularity, and a lack of inflammatory cells which has challenged the original misnomer "tendinitis".[2]
    Jeez. This is just.... terrible.

    Danny 3P% last 4 seasons:
    40.4
    36.1
    38.6
    38.1

    Current Pacers 3P%
    27.8

    Highest 3P% of the 4 guys taking at least 3.5 per game - PG with 33%.

    So now we have to count on Lance taking 5 a game at 44% to save the day? Teams are literally going to do the Bobcats lane stuff zone every single night. Without shooters this team is in huge trouble.

    I wasn't worried till I saw the last 2 games and how many wide open jumpers guys were missing. This is what ended up biting the 61 win team, the Pistons just packed down on JO, Ron and Al going to the post/lane and other than Reggie there was no one to keep them honest.

    Either Roy needs to get even tougher or someone needs to start making those outside shots.

    This.

    It's really time for Lance and Paul George to step up on the wings, and Roy to step up inside. We HAVE to make teams pay from the outside.
