INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Indiana is still plotting how to use Danny Granger when he returns from his knee injury, possibly as soon as Wednesday.
Pacers coach Frank Vogel says the All-Star forward felt good after going through his first full practice Sunday and if everything goes as expected Tuesday, Granger could play Wednesday against Charlotte.
Granger has been the Pacers' leading scorer each of the past five seasons but hasn't played at all this season because of patellar tendinosis in his left knee.
Now, with the Pacers surging back into the Central Division lead, it appears Granger is ready to come back.
The bigger question may be how long he'll play. Vogel says Granger could start and play limited minutes right away or he could come off the bench for a few games.
