Indiana Pacers swingman Danny Granger’s transition back into the lineup has hit another roadblock. Granger sat out of Tuesday’s practice and is questionable for Wednesday’s game against the Boston Celtics because of “above average” soreness in his left knee. The team is classifying Granger as day-to-day. Going from being expected to play 17 to 20 minutes a game at the start of his return from the injury to being labeled day-to-day has caused concern within the Pacers organization. The team’s medical staff is taking seriously any soreness in Granger’s knee. They will continue to take that approach until determining what’s causing the problem. Granger’s soreness started against the Toronto Raptors last week. He played 10 minutes in the first half before informing staffers his knee was sore, causing them to shut him down for the rest of the game. The knee remained sore against Chicago on Sunday. Granger landed awkwardly after attempting a shot in the first half.
