Insight: He's still out with a strained hamstring. The earliest Granger would be back is Thursday against Dallas. At 16.2 mpg, Granger isn't seeing enough court time to warrant fantasy consideration.
 
3/28/2014 7:31:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles Clippers swingman Danny Granger (hamstring) has been ruled out for Saturday against the Rockets, according to Brad Turner of the L.A. Times.
Insight: Granger has averaged just 16.2 minutes per game in 12 games with Los Angeles and isn't a fantasy option.
 
3/28/2014 9:58:00 AM
Description: Los Angeles Clippers swingman Danny Granger injured his left hamstring in Thursday's game and didn't return.
Insight: Granger has not posted a double-digit point total in three games and has limited value even when healthy.
 
2/28/2014 5:45:00 PM
Description: Danny Granger has signed with the Los Angeles Clippers, according to Ramona Shelburne of espn.com.
Insight: Granger was traded from Indiana to Philadelphia at the deadline and then bought out of his contract. He averaged 8.3 points on 35.9 percent shooting in 22.5 minutes per game with the Pacers this season and no longer has the legs to be a fantasy option. Even with Jamal Crawford's expected 2-3 game absence, there's no need to pick up Granger.

Description: San Antonio would be a possible landing spot for Danny Granger if the Sixers buy him out. SOURCE: Marc Stein, ESPN
Insight: Most are expecting Granger (8.3 ppg, 3.6 rpg) to be waived by the Sixers within the next 24 hours. He wouldn't have a ton of fantasy value with the Spurs but at least he'd be playing again.

Description: The 76ers have agreed to buyout Danny Granger. SOURCE: Jake Pavorsky, SB Nation
Insight: Granger was dealt to the Sixers on Thursday but never ended up playing for them. He was averaging 8.3 ppg for the Pacers before they traded him.

Description: The Sixers are considering buying out the rest of Danny Granger's contract. SOURCE: Chris Vito, Delaware County Times
Insight: General manager Sam Hinkie was noncommital on the subject Friday though buying out Granger seems like it would be the right move. Granger was reportedly furious he was traded to Philadelphia and it's clear he wouldn't be part of the team's rebuilding process. Granger (8.3 ppg, 3.6 rpg) won't be in action Friday versus Dallas.
 
2/20/2014 7:37:00 PM
Description: The Sixers landed Danny Granger Thursday as part of a three-player swap. SOURCE: Adrian Wojnarowski, Yahoo Sports
Insight: You have to feel for Granger here. After eight and a half years in Indiana, Granger (8.3 ppg, 3.6 rpg) goes from the best team in the Eastern Conference to the second-worst. It's actually good for fantasy owners though as Granger should see more playing time in Philly than he did with the Pacers.
 
12/20/2013 10:33:00 PM
Description: Pacers small forward Danny Granger (knee, calf) played 22 minutes in his season debut Friday and had five points on 1-of-7 shooting.
Insight: Knee and calf issues caused him to miss the first 25 games of the season after playing just five in 2012-13. He's unlikely to have fantasy value as the team uses him as a reserve swingman behind MVP candidate Paul George and Lance Stephenson.

Description: Pacers small forward Danny Granger will make his season debut Friday against Houston. SOURCE: Scott Agness, Pacers.com
Insight: Knee and calf issues caused him to miss the first 25 games of the season. Granger won't see more than a handful of minutes in his debut.
 
12/10/2013 7:35:00 PM
Description: Indiana forward Danny Granger expects to return Friday against Charlotte. SOURCE: Brian Windhorst, ESPN
Insight: His coach doesn't, but at least we know Granger is getting close. He's been out all season with a calf injury. Granger's return will probably impact Lance Stephenson's fantasy value more than Paul George's.
 
11/12/2013 6:27:00 PM
Description: Pacers G/F Danny Granger (calf) resumed practicing Tuesday, according to pacers.nba.com.
Insight: Granger was held out for more than three weeks due to a strained left calf. He's still out indefinitely and likely won't play more than 25 minutes per game when he returns.
 
11/11/2013 12:40:00 PM
Description: Pacers G/F Danny Granger is expected to be back on the practice court this week and should be back in a game with 10-14 games, according to beat reporter Candace Buckner.
Insight: Granger's role is going to be much smaller when he comes back as the Pacers are deep and don't need him to be a big-time scorer anymore.
 
10/28/2013 8:18:00 PM
Description: The Pacers will sit Danny Granger (calf) for approximately three weeks, according to NBA.com.
Insight: The team said the move is a precautionary measure after Granger missed all but five games last season due to a knee injury. Lance Stephenson will start at shooting guard while Paul George will slide to small forward. Fantasy owners shouldn't count on Granger as more than a late-round selection.
 
10/27/2013 2:38:00 PM
Description: Indiana will be without small forward Danny Granger for the first two games of the season. SOURCE: Scott Agness, Pacers.com
Insight: Here we go again. Granger, who is dealing with a strained left calf, just can't seem to stay healthy. While he's sidelined, Paul George will fill in at small forward with Lance Stephenson playing the two.
 
10/24/2013 2:44:00 PM
Description: Pacers small forward Danny Granger aggravated his left calf strain last Friday and is doubtful for Wednesday's season opener. SOURCE: Scott Agness, Pacers.com
Insight: Granger played just five games last season because of a knee injury. The 30-year-old could be Indiana's starter at small forward this season but even if he is, he's unlikely to see more than 30 minutes a game. For the opener, Paul George would probably play the three with Lance Stephenson filling in at shooting guard.
 
10/18/2013 9:51:00 PM
Description: Pacers small forward Danny Granger aggravated his left calf strain Friday against Chicago.
Insight: Granger played just five games last season due to a left knee injury, and he strained his calf Wednesday night before leaving Friday's game with the same issue. The 30-year-old may start for Indiana but he's unlikely to see more than 30 minutes per game.
 
10/16/2013 10:01:00 PM
Description: Pacers small forward Danny Granger suffered a left calf strain during Wednesday's preseason game.
Insight: Granger played just five games last season due to a left knee injury, and his calf strain could be a result of Granger trying to get comfortable playing on the knee this preseason. The Pacers are likely to limit Granger's minutes to around 25 per game, which will hurt his fantasy value.
