Indiana Pacers forward David West sprains knee in Game 5 vs. Heat

Wednesday May 23rd, 2012

As if the Pacers weren't in a bad enough way with leading scorer Danny Granger day-to-day after spraining his left ankle in the second quarter of Game 5 of Indiana's series against the Miami Heat, Granger's frontcourt bookend, power forward David West, sprained his left knee late in the third quarter of the same contest.

West was cleared to return to action, but with the game all but out of reach he was held out for the remainder of the night. Coach Frank Vogel confirmed after the game that West was available, and said that he had no concerns about West's availability for Game 6.
