    Normal recovery is 2-3 months, full recovery is 6-8 months, and there's an 80% chance that he'll be able to resume physical activity. I don't have a source but that's what I read about tendinosis injections.

    There's no reason to make a false public statement about injury treatment, so I doubt there is more to it than the injection. Someone who has access should find a treatment plan for the injury to see if it recommends crutches/no weight.

    Tendonosis sounds like what Dunleavey had except they didn't name it. And one of the treatments is surgery to scrape the tendon (as I understand it) with the expectation being that the healing process will encourage bloodflow that was lacking at the root of the problem.

    Same xray person I talked to believes Granger probably got a Synvisc injection. Apparently has some anti inflammatory help but mainly lubricates the heck out of the knee and would be closer to this 3 month time frame.

    Do other NBA teams have a history of hiding/spinning injuries to the point the fans actually doubt the official word?

    If history repeats one of these days we'll be reading a Pacers' report and there will be some matter of fact mention about Granger healing well following surgery and we'll all be like: Surgery? When? What? Can that be right? Huh? Of course before that we'll hear how he's been responding positively to rehab.

    Then at some point we'll be reading Montieth and he'll mention in a matter of fact way "Pacers officials still hold out hope that Granger can return by the playoffs" ...as if the 3 months rehab period had been updated and it was common knowledge his season was in jeopardy.

    And one day we'll be reading about his treatments and there will be a comment mentioning career threatening.

    Or maybe it just seems like that is the Pacers way with injuries....

    Pretty sure Dunleavy had a massive bone spur that he finally got removed his last year here.

    There was some interesting and unsettling revelations in the latest update on Mike Dunleavy's knee injury. The injury is due to a "giant bone spur on my right patella tendon." According to Dun, the knee has been an issue for some time.
    http://www.indycornrows.com/2009/3/2...y-staring-at-k

    Good catch. I apparently combined the issue and limited it to the tendon.

    Inflammation isn't really an issue with tendonosis. Synvisc is indicated for osteoarthritis (though I am sure it's used in a variety of off-label ways too, just like most drugs). I don't think we've heard anything about Danny having osteoarthritis, have we?

    Tendons heal slowly, guys. There's not necessarily a secret surgery conspiracy going on here.

    That's progress for Granger, who has been in sweats and on crutches at practice the last few days. He has declined interview requests.

    Danny Granger was off crutches today, walked without a limp and appeared to have just worked out.





    They also said that he is almost ready to be able to ride his white horse(I have inside info )

    I dont think the fact that he is holding a basketball means he has been shooting around.

    Would set shots put strain on the knee? If not, one would think a little shooting to get one's eye back in couldn't hurt.

    What about that in combination of the tweet looking like he had just worked out?

    I was shooting set shots 2 months after my ACL surgery, which my doctor said was perfectly okay.

    Yes, but that's not a bad thing.

    I'm not surprised he's shooting around, I'm surprised that it went from crutches to shots so fast. I would have expected to hear he was off crutches for a few days first.

    I think the crunches thing was more there to keep stress off of the knee than a real necessity.

    They'll probably start him off by shooting free throws. That should help him get his shooting motion fine tuned and with the way the team has been missing them that's the best place to start.

    This is good news by the way even if he wasn't shooting around. It's better than hearing that he's not making any progress and he's still on crutches.

    Ok I have a question. Are there any restrictions on who can play on your D-League team? If not then I think it might be smart of the Pacers to do what MLB teams sometimes do with injured players coming back in the middle of the season. Let him play with the Mad Ants for a few games to help get him back up to speed without being a possible detriment to the team. It might slow his actual return down a little, but it might serve to help to smooth out some of the bumps of coming back mid-season.

    For players with 3 or more years experience, both the player and the union would have to approve the assignment. The scenario seems unlikely, as the union would not be fond of setting the precedent, and the Pacers would want him close to their medical staff.

    Yes. New CBA.

    Previous rules were Rookies or Second year players only (0 to 1 yrs experience), limit of 3 assignments.

    New rules are rookies, 2nd & 3rd year players any time (0 to 2 yrs experience), 4th year or higher as noted above...no limit on assignments.
