Indiana Pacers Getting Inside 2009-12-11


Indiana Pacers Getting Inside 2009-12-11The Pacers will have to attempt to salvage their season without their best player for at least the next month.

Forward Danny Granger has been sidelined with a torn plantar fascia in his right foot. Granger suffered the injury in the third quarter of the Dec. 5 game against the Los Angeles Clippers. He won't have surgery and will begin rehabilitation immediately.

"It's tough; you never want to see anybody get hurt," point guard T.J. Ford said. "You definitely want everybody to play 82 games. Is that realistic on an NBA team? I don't think so. Hopefully he can get healthy because we're definitely going to need him down the stretch."

The Pacers, who were 9-6 without Granger last season, have to find a way to make up for his 24.4 points a game. Brandon Rush, who was demoted to the bench last week, will start at shooting guard and Dahntay Jones will slide to small forward.

"You hate to lose anybody, certainly Danny, who is an All-Star caliber player, and to lose him leaves a big hole that cannot be filled by any individual," coach Jim O'Brien said. "It has to be filled by the collective group.

"When it comes right down to it, you have to go out and win basketball games with whoever you have playing."

TRAIL BLAZERS 102, PACERS 91: The Pacers fought back from an 11-point deficit, but they didn't have enough to overcome Portland's Brandon Roy down the stretch. Roy scored 10 of his 29 points in the fourth quarter to hand the Pacers their sixth straight loss.
