Danny Granger to Undergo Season-Ending Knee Surgery

by March 28, 2013

Danny Granger sat out the first few months of the season with a knee injury, and though he made a brief five-game return before heading back to the sideline in early March, his year is now officially done, as the Pacers have announced the small forward will undergo surgery that’ll end his 2012-13. Via NBA.com: “The Indiana Pacers announced Thursday that forward Danny Granger will miss the remainder of the season to undergo surgery on his left knee. The decision was made after all conservative treatment options could not alleviate the soreness Granger encountered. After consultation between Granger, the Pacers’ medical staff and Dr. James Andrews, surgery became the preferred option. Granger underwent a procedure in late October for patellar tendinosis. He returned Feb. 25 and played five games before continued soreness in the knee sidelined him. After further rehab did not ease the soreness, surgery was decided on. He is expected to be ready for training camp.”
