Pacers' Granger undergoes knee surgery

The SportsXchange

Indiana Pacers forward Danny Granger underwent successful surgery on his left knee Thursday and is expected to be ready for the start of training camp for the 2013 season, the team announced.

The surgery was performed by renowned surgeon Dr. James Andrews, with assistance from Team Orthopedist Dr. Tim Hupfer.

The Pacers announced last month Granger would miss the rest of the season "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 Dr. Andrews, at which time the "preferred option" became surgery.

This was 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.
