Indiana Pacers forward Danny Granger will miss the remainder of the season because of a left knee injury.
Granger had recently returned from a stint on the sidelines as he battled with patellar tendinosis. Danny is scheduled in for surgery to repair his troubled knee.
This is a huge blow for Indiana as Granger has led the team in scoring for the last five seasons. Not only that he’s proven he can take and make big shots, which would be handy with the playoff just around the corner.
Things don’t get any easier for the Pacers. Today they take on a hungry, in-form Dallas team who are just one game out of the playoffs in the Western Conference.
The Pacers (45-27) are currently in third place and in a tight duel with the Knicks (45-26). Both are trying to secure second place in the Eastern Conference.
The Pacers haven’t made it back to the finals since the 1999-2000 season when they lost 4-2 to the Los Angeles Lakers.
