The Indiana Pacers have a tough road ahead of them. Their leading scorer and all-around best player, Danny Granger, will be out for the next three months with an injured left knee. He recently received an injection to treat left patellar tendinosis, which is known as "jumper's knee." It's basically an inflammation in the patellar tendon that could eventually turn into a tear and the only treatment for this type of injury is rest. Granger already missed most of the preseason and hasn't seen the court in the regular season yet. Hopefully he can return around the All-Star break. Until then, the Pacers are going to have to rely on Roy Hibbert, Paul George, and David West to keep them in playoff contention.
