Indiana Pacers forward Danny Granger will miss the remainder of the season to undergo surgery on his left knee.
The Pacers made the decision "after all conservative treatment options could not alleviate the soreness" Granger had experienced after only five games this season.
Granger and the Pacers' medical staff received consultation from renowned surgeon Dr. James Andrews, at which time the "preferred option" became surgery, the Pacers said in a release.
This will be the second operation on Granger's knee since October, when he was diagnosed with patellar tendinosis. He sat out until Feb. 25 and played five games before continued soreness in the knee sent him back to the sideline.
The Pacers expect Granger to be on the court in time for training camp.
