The Pacers announced Tuesday that forward Danny Granger will be out “indefinitely” with soreness in his left knee.

Granger injured a tendon in his left knee toward the end of the second-round playoff series with Miami last season, and tweaked it during off-season workouts. He received a platelet-rich plasma injection in Los Angeles on Sept. 16, a procedure in which blood is drawn from the patient, spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-poor plasma, and injected into the damaged tendon.

Granger expressed confidence throughout training camp that he would have a healthy knee during the upcoming season. He participated in the final two preseason games. He played 12 minutes at Cleveland, scoring nine points, and 22 minutes against Chicago in South Bend last Friday, scoring 10 points.

Granger, the Pacers' first-round draft pick in 2005, is entering his eighth season with the franchise. He has been the team's leading scorer for the past five seasons. He was an All-Star in the 2008-09 season, when he averaged a career-high 25.8 points.

BREAKING NEWS: Danny Granger Out For 3 Months

By The Sports Xchange | The SportsXchange

Indiana Pacers forward Danny Granger will miss three months after undergoing a procedure on his left knee, the team announced Thursday.

Granger's injury was described as left patellar tendinosis. The Pacers said he received an injection on Tuesday from Dr. James Andrews in Gulf Breeze, Fla.

Without Granger, the Pacers will be searching for offense to offset his loss. Granger averaged 18.3 points per game last season and led Indiana to the Eastern Conference semifinals. He has led the team in scoring the past five seasons.

Gerald Green had started at forward in Granger's absence before coach Frank Vogel turned to Sam Young this week.

The Pacers (2-2) play in Atlanta on Wednesday night.
