Danny Granger Out for Tonight’s Game

by March 17, 2010

Danny took a shot where the sun don’t shine last night, and according to the Indy Star, he will not suit up tonight in Cleveland: “Granger missed the final 56 seconds of a 99-94 victory after taking an inadvertent elbow on his cheek while battling for a rebound. As play was going on at the other end of the court, Granger slowly made his way back upcourt grabbing his groin area. He signaled to athletic trainer Josh Corbeil that he needed to be taken out of the game after play had been stopped by a foul. Granger staggered toward to the bench before stumbling to the floor right before getting there. The team’s medical staff quickly surrounded Granger. A few minutes later, a wobby Granger was helped to the locker room by Josh McRoberts and assistant trainer Carl Eaton. ‘Everything was moving so fast that I didn’t see what happened with Danny,’ said Pacers swingman Dahntay Jones, who was in the scrum in the paint battling for the rebound. “Nobody really knows. I guess he went for the rebound and I guess he got hit somewhere.’ Granger was still being evaluated late Tuesday and a team spokesman said they will have more information today. He will miss tonight’s game at Cleveland.”
