Danny Granger could make his season debut for the Indiana Pacers Wednesday night, according to a report from the Associated Press.
The former All-Star forward practiced Tuesday with Indiana's starting unit and head coach Frank Vogel said that he will leave it up to Granger as to whether he will play Wednesday night as the team hosts the Charlotte Bobcats. He has not played all season because of patellar tendinosis in his left knee and has remained mum on his progress throughout his process of returning to the court.
The 2009 All-Star has led the Pacers in scoring in each of the last five seasons, but the team has fared fairly well in his absence this year as Indiana currently sits in third place in the Eastern Conference, due in part to the stellar play of Paul George, who will play in the NBA All-Star game this weekend for the first time in his career.
