Forward Danny Granger is the leading scorer for the Indiana Pacers, averaging 18 points a game, but he'll likely be sitting out when the Eastern Conference's sixth-place team takes on the Cleveland Cavaliers Wednesday night. That's not good news for Indiana, which is looking to stop a four-game losing streak.

Granger sprained his left ankle at the end of the first quarter in the Pacers' 105-90 loss Tuesday to the Miami Heat, according to the Indianapolis Star, but coach Frank Vogel is hoping that Granger can be back in the lineup against the Cavs, anyway.

If the 28-year-old Granger, who was selected with the 17th overall pick in the 2005 draft out of New Mexico and made it onto the All-Star team back in 2009, can't make it onto the floor Wednesday, the Pacers will start Dahntay Jones in his place, the Star reports.
