INDIANAPOLIS - Indiana Pacers forward Danny Granger is out indefinitely because of a sore left knee.
Team officials said Tuesday that Granger will get a second opinion on the injury and an update will be provided following that visit.
The announcement comes one day before Indiana opens its season at Toronto, and losing the 6-foot- 8 former All-Star could be a real blow. Granger led the Pacers in scoring (18.7 points) last season and has averaged 18.2 points and 5.2 rebounds in seven NBA seasons.
He played through the Eastern Conference semifinals with a sore left knee and has had blood-platelet treatment in hopes of healing.
Coach Frank Vogel was cautious with Granger throughout training camp and the preseason. Granger made his preseason debut last week against Cleveland.
