Indianapolis, IN – Indiana Pacers forward Danny Granger will be out of action indefinitely with left knee soreness, the team reported on Tuesday.
The Pacers' official Twitter feed said "Granger will get a second opinion and once that is received an update will be provided."
Granger injured a tendon in his left knee in the team's second-round playoff loss last season to the Miami Heat. He aggravated the injury in off-season workouts.
Granger, an All-Star in the 2008-09 season and the team's leading scorer the last five seasons, received a plasma injection on the injured knee in September and thought he could play through the pain. He played in the Pacers' final two preseason games.
The Pacers open their season in Toronto on Wednesday night.
