    Danny Granger will NOT play tonight. David West (eye) missed shootaround and is a game-time decision.



    Penderstar time?

    I think it's fair to ask if we're going to see him in the month of February.

    Sick? I guess it wasn't meant to be. I guess it is good to get it out of the way now. Seems like every player on the roster has been sick at one time or another.

    Granger (ill) out, West game-time (eye). Neither at shootaround.

    Good lord, we're going to go into the all star break on a 3 game losing streak. I blame Wells article.

    Vogel said Granger has flu symptoms so he won't play. His knee responded well to practice but he "probably wouldn't be quite ready" anyway.



    Conrad was right I guess.

    Never expected Granger to play b4 the Allstar break. Makes more sense for him to use the extra week for healing.

    I listened to the Conrad interview on JMV. Conrad said that Frank has dialed the Granger expectations back a bit over the last week or so. Frank said that we aren't going to put a guy out there until he (Granger) is confident that he can play well, and Conrad wondered if maybe Granger wasn't confident in his ability to play well yet. Yesterday coach said "he looks rusty, that's what you'd expect, I want to warn people about expectations and that you might not see a 40 minute player at first".

    The gist of the interview is that Conrad seemed to be dialing back expectations.

    If DWest is out, I'd hope Chumlee would get some PT against the Puddycats. It might help raise his trade value. LOL!

    Just be prepared. I've prepared for a worse case scenario. If it happens, look to the southern part of Marion co area for a bright red mushroom explosion, that will be me throwing a Rumplestiltskin fit.

    I predicted we'd be 4-3 in February before the break. Suffice to say, this was not how I thought it would happen.

    ... Or getting in those 300 perimeter jumpers and 100 free throws per day in preparation for his first game.

    With illnesses in the family and two new grandchildren, I haven't made a game yet this year. With what I thought would be Granger's return, I was going to make tonight my first. So, I'll hold off one more game. I plan on giving my first standing ovation of the season to Granger when he enters the game for the first time.

    With Granger out, West ailing, Pendergraph steps forward
    Published February 13, 2013 | By Conrad Brunner
    We thought tonight’s game was going to be about Danny Granger.

    Instead, it could well be about Jeff Pendergraph.

    Instead of being back to full strength for the first time this year, the Pacers will remain shorthanded tonight – possibly even moreso than expected.

    Danny Granger will not make his regular-season debut, the Pacers said after shootaround this morning. Granger has been felled by flu-like symptoms, so he will not be back until after the All-Star break.

    And David West may join Granger on the sidelines tonight. West sustained a scratched left eye early in the Pacers’ 89-84 overtime loss to the Nets Monday, did not practice Tuesday and was not at shootaround Wednesday. He’s officially listed as a game-time decision.

    If West cannot go, Jeff Pendergraph will get his first start of the season – and just his second in three years.

    GRANGER’s KNEE NOT QUITE READY

    Granger was cleared for full-contact earlier this month and has had two full practices, including Tuesday at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Coach Frank Vogel had been enthusiastic about the prospects of a pre-All-Star-break return for Granger, who has been out all season while recovering from left knee tendinosis – a much more serious condition than tendinitis – was more reserved yesterday.

    “My message to Danny is ‘we don’t want you to come back until you feel like you’re ready,’ ’’ Vogel said. “We don’t want to rush guys back that aren’t ready to come back, that don’t feel good about how they’re playing and how their bodies feel. So if he’s not there yet, then I don’t want to push the issue. We’ll wait.”

    Though Granger’s knee responded positively to practice, Vogel said he probably wouldn’t have played tonight even in the absence of illness.

    “(Granger) responded well, (but) he probably wouldn’t be quite ready yet, even if he wasn’t sick,” Vogel said. “Combined with the fact he’s sick, just not the right time.

    “We’re hoping for right after the All-Star break but we’ll see how this week of continuing to work goes for him.”


    PENDERGRAPH MAY GET HIS BIG CHANCE

    Pendergraph racked up season highs of 17.3 minutes, 14 points and 10 rebounds off the bench against the Nets Monday, raising questions about why the 6-9 forward hasn’t been able to find a place in the rotation.

    Now, he could pick up his first start since April 23 of last season, an inconsequential game.

    “I feel I’m pretty ready. I’ve been ready all year,” Pendergraph said. “It’s time to take control of the opportunity and make the most of it.”

    Asked if he would approach the game with a different mindset as a starter, Pendegraph was refreshingly candid.

    “I have no idea, I really haven’t done it,” he said with a smile. “We’ll approach it the same way and see how it works.”

    Vogel said West’s eye was swollen almost completely shut this morning after a visit to the doctor but said the decision about the veteran power forward’s availability would not be made until players return to the arena tonight.

    why is PG out tonight? Is he still fouled out?
    No, he's already left for Houston. In fact, I think he left Monday.
    "We've got to be very clear about this. We don't want our players hanging around with murderers," said Larry Bird, Pacers president.

    I always felt it would have been smart for him to play some these last 2 games, and then use the AS break to recover and get some rest from those games. But it doesn't matter what I think lol I'm just a fan. Seems like we will just have to get used to not having him play for a few more games.

    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    I love that Pendy is getting the start if David can't go.

    And I'll be damned if this team is gonna lose to freaking Charlotte. Give me PG/Hill/Roy, they got this.
