Foot injury shelves Pacers' Granger

December 09, 2009

Pacers forward Danny Granger, the team's leading scorer, will be out for at least four weeks with a foot injury.

The team said Tuesday that Granger would miss a minimum of four to six weeks with a torn right plantar fascia, the tissue across the bottom of the foot connecting the heel and toes. The Pacers say Granger won't need surgery and is starting rehabilitation.

Granger left the floor in the third quarter of Saturday's game against the Clippers.

Granger is averaging 24.4 points a game this season for the Pacers, who have lost nine of their last 10 games following a five-game winning streak.

•Nuggets forward Kenyon Martin didn't play against the Bobcats because of a dislocated left pinkie. Coach George Karl said before Tuesday's game that he was uncertain if Martin would miss additional games. Martin was injured Monday against Philadelphia and continued to play with the injury. He's averaging 10.2 points and 7.4 rebounds.

•Celtics coach Doc Rivers said he's tired of hearing about disgraced referee Tim Donaghy. The Celtics coach said he hates that "we're giving a guy like that credibility."
