    Default Granger out for three weeks

    Granger to Miss Three Weeks
    Official Release

    October 28, 2013 | 10:00 a.m. EDT

    Indiana Pacers forward Danny Granger will miss approximately three weeks as he rehabilitates a strained left calf injury sustained in the preseason. The length of time is a precautionary measure as the team wants to ensure Granger is physically ready to play in light of missing all but five games last season due to his knee injury. The rehabilitation time is strictly related to the calf injury.

    ... If I said I was surprised by this I wouldn't be honest.

    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    If I get any flak for being worried I am going to go nuts.

    This is the beginning of the end for Granger as a Pacer.

    So a calf injury is going to end his career?

    correction: I didn't realize you meant just as a Pacer.

    No I don't. I think he will come back and be productive until another little injury. And he won't be available fully in the playoffs. Granger will be the new Peja.

    He will go to another team next year have a solid year. And then finds a Battier role on some team.

    Why would someone give you flak for being worried? Saying you are worried isn't proclaiming from the highest mountain that you knew this was a career ending injury two years before the injury even happened.

    Bummer to hear this but unlike last year we have the depth to deal with it this year.

    More than anything I feel bad for Danny who has to be dying to get out there and play.

    Yup. Can't say I'm surprised by the news, but I'd have really liked Danny going out with a bang this year. Still can happen of course. But I hope Danny won't press to come back until he's truly ready.

    So the "minor injury" is so "minor" that he has to take about 4 weeks off to recover(26 days to be exact) interesting.....

    Look, I know you think it's his knee, but I'll just point this out. If Danny has a grade II strain, he is actually exactly right on for typical healing. Check it out.

    http://orthopedics.about.com/od/spra...calfstrain.htm


    • Grade II Calf Strain: Moderate discomfort with walking, and limited ability to perform activities, such as running and jumping; may have swelling and bruising associated. (Right now we've been told he can't run, so that is why I am assuming Grade II, perhaps it was originally grade I, but then he played on it and it escalated to grade II)


    Calf Strain Healing Time

    The length of time needed for healing a calf strain depends on the severity of the injury. A typical grade I calf strain will heal in 7 to 10 days, a grade II injury within about 4 to 6 weeks, and a grade III calf strain within about 3 months. The most common injury is a grade II calf strain that takes about 6 weeks for complete healing.

    Just saying....I'm not trying to call you out or anything, but just giving the facts on the injury. I know most of us hear strain and think about that time you pulled it reaching for something, but it's usually more severe than that. Especially if you do it during actual physical activity.

    Nope I don't think is the knee but I believe that not playing for a long time and playing crazy minutes from the get go is what got him injured, the Pacers need to realize that he can't play that many minutes anymore and the sooner they figure this out the better for everybody.

    Ok, if that's your case I don't know that I can really disagree. I was honestly baffled that he strained the calf and then they immediately had him playing (and starting) in the next game.

    Plumlee reminds me of a young Dale Davis. Good rebounding and he contests shots well on defense and his offensive game is very raw just like DD's was coming out of college.

    I think it's obvious Granger thinks he's closer to a return than the team does. In fact, I think it would be pretty common for players to be more optimistic about their return than team officals league-wide.

    Yes....calf strains are usually minor, but if you come back too soon it will reoccur just as what happened with Danny. I went through this a few months ago. I had a calf strain and would take a week off and the pain would subside so I would start running again only to have it come back a couple days later. This happened about three times before I got smart and stayed off if it longer than a week. Three to four weeks sounds about right to me.

    LOL! Just remember vnzla wasn't the only one who predicted Granger wouldn't be starting the season!!! I dislike saying it, but I told you so.

    I'll say it again: Lance is the starter UNTIL Granger can "earn" back his starting spot! AND I MEAN EARN IT BACK!!!!!!!

    This is officially the line of delineation for me. I will be going through the stages of preparing myself for not relying on Danny at all this year. If he is a factor, great. But my hope is waning.
