In a press release, the Pacers announced that Granger had received an injection "to treat left patellar tendinosis" on Tuesday, and that team medical personnel estimates the forward's recovery time at about three months. Danny Granger‘s injury woes went from bad to worse today when the Pacers announced their leading scorer from last season will miss approximately three months. "It hurts," Granger said in mid-October. According to the Pacers' schedule, that comeback would follow 45 missed games, in addition to the four he's already missed.

NBA fans might be more familiar with the layman's term for patellar tendinosis, "jumper's knee," perhaps most famously suffered by then-Toronto Raptors star Vince Carter during the 2000-01 season; he'd miss 66 games over the next three seasons.
