NEW YORK (AP) -- Danny Granger's ring finger on his shooting hand is not broken and he will be able to return to U.S. practice when he is ready.

USA Basketball officials said Wednesday that X-rays on Granger's finger were negative and it is only dislocated. The Indiana Pacers forward was hurt when he hit his right hand on the rim during a scrimmage Tuesday. He left practice with his ring and middle fingers taped together and a splint over the ring finger.

Granger said immediately after the injury he feared the finger was broken. He didn't practice Wednesday and went for an an MRI exam instead.

Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo missed practice because of a death in his family. He is expected to return Thursday.
