Danny Granger, who has missed the majority of the 2012-13 season, may return to the lineup on Wednesday against the Rockets, reports the Indianapolis Star. Granger made a brief comeback at the end of February, but was shut down again with left knee problems. The official diagnosis is patellar tendinitis, or "jumper's knee." Granger has appeared in only five games so far this season and is averaging 5.4 points and 1.8 rebounds. He is shooting 29 percent from the field. The team has said they hope to have Granger back for the playoffs; they have 11 regular season games left. If he does play on Wednesday, the Pacers will likely limit his minutes.
