Danny Granger’s Finger Dislocated

by August 11, 2010

Talk about bad luck. Granger busted up a digit on the first day of Team USA’s training camp in NYC. From the AP: “Granger was hurt when he banged his hand on the rim while playing defense. Team officials didn’t believe the injury was serious, but Granger planned to see a doctor after practice. ‘As soon as I did it, I thought it was broken,’ he said. ‘It will be disappointing if I couldn’t play.’ Granger missed some practice time earlier this summer with a knee injury but returned to play well enough to earn a trip with 14 others to the second training session. The world championships start Aug. 28 in Turkey. ‘I just hope he’s not hurt, because whenever the final decisions are made, we never want a decision to be made because of somebody being hurt,’ U.S. coach Mike Krzyzewski said. ‘That’s not a good way of making a decision.'”
