Indiana Pacers guard Danny Granger has been cleared to return to practice, but he probably won't play in a game until next week, the Indianapolis Star reported Monday.
Granger had knee surgery during training camp and tried to return a few weeks ago.
However, he couldn't play more than a few minutes in games and was ineffective.
He's been out of action since then as he continues to rehab his knee.
Granger will practice with the team this week, and could conceivably play late this week, although next week is more likely.
