Danny Granger’s return to an Indiana Pacers uniform is just one of the medical cases coach Frank Vogel is watching as a four-game Western Conference road trip begins Wednesday night in Houston.

Vogel expects the former NBA All-Star to play sometime this week — although maybe not against the Rockets — as the Pacers look to get healthy as the regular season winds down.

Meanwhile, guard Lance Stephenson (hip) appears ready to play, Vogel said. Forward David West (back) and point guard George Hill (groin) will have their injuries re-evaluated Wednesday.

“I guess you’d call them questionable,” Vogel said. “Day-to-day.”

Vogel used three new starters (Tyler Hansbrough, Gerald Green and D.J. Augustin) in Monday’s 100-94 home victory over Atlanta, a mix-and-match that could be in play Wednesday, too.

West and Hill didn’t practice at Bankers Life Fieldhouse prior to the team’s afternoon flight to Houston, but West might as well have. He battled Stephenson (see video), Orlando Johnson and Green in a half-court drill for the better part of 20 minutes after others had left the court.

“I was under the impression he wasn’t supposed to do that,” Vogel said, laughing. “I think (the medical staff) wanted to limit him to no contact. He’s feeling good so he pushes it a little bit.”
