INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- The Indiana Pacers say All-Star Danny Granger will miss up to three weeks with a partial tendon tear in the sole of his right foot.
An MRI conducted Thursday in Minneapolis revealed the tear. The injury occurred in the first half of Wednesday night's game at Charlotte.
Granger pulled up after a Charlotte turnover and came out of the game during a timeout with 10:50 left in the quarter. Granger says he at first thought he had just pulled the muscle, but then realized he had "something wrong."
Granger had been playing with pain in his right knee for several weeks, and played just 11 minutes in the All-Star game to avoid making it worse. He also participated in the 3-point shootout during All-Star weekend.
