During the first quarter of Indiana's 101-98 preseason win over the New Orleans Hornets on Friday, Pacers forward Danny Granger suffered a left ankle injury driving to the basket, according to IndyStar.com .
“It swelled right up,” Pacers coach Jim O’Brien said about their best offensive player. “I don’t know how long it’s going to take for him to get healed. Clearly we need him to be healthy. But we can’t do anything about that until we find out how severely sprained it is.”
Mike Wells of the Indianapolis Star checks in on Twitter today to report that the Pacers expect Granger out 7-10 days with the left ankle sprain.
With Granger sidelined, Indiana will have to make due with Mike Dunleavy Jr., James Posey, Dahntay Jones and rookie Paul George on the wing.
