Oct 28, 2012 Small Forward Updates
Danny Granger missed the first five preseason games and has been extremely limited in the remainder of preseason and things don’t look to be getting much better as the regular season is just days away. Granger’s left knee, the same one he suffered through last season, is just not healing as expected and he could miss games throughout the season. Reports seem to suggest that the knee can’t get any worse physically, but rather it’s the pain that is limiting Granger. His draft rank and fantasy value is really sinking right now.
Fantasy Analysis – If Granger is forced to miss games, owners will need to pickup Gerald Green. Green has seen just about all the action at Small Forward this season and makes a great late round gamble and a definite must grab handcuff for Granger.
Paul George also stands to benefit if Granger is shut down. George is the next best perimeter scoring option for the Pacers and would see a bunch of extra looks that would normally go to Granger.
