Danny Granger injured his left ankle last night when he landed on LeBron James’ foot, and even though the Pacers are listing him as being day-to-day, Granger vows to play in Game 6 tomorrow night. Reports the Indy Star: “The Pacers’ leading scorer left the arena in a walking boot and is day-to-day with a sprained left ankle. ‘I have no idea,’ Pacers coach Frank Vogel said when asked if he thinks he’ll have Granger for Game 6. ‘We’ll prepare a plan for him and we’ll prepare for without him.’ Granger came down on James’ foot after attempting a 3-pointer in front of Miami’s bench with less than 3 minutes left in the first half. He lay on the ground momentarily before hobbling to the locker room. Granger opened the third quarter in the lineup before the Pacers shut him down when he wrapped up James on a drive to the basket. ‘I don’t see a circumstance where I wouldn’t play (Thursday),’ Granger said.”
