Danny Granger Injury: Indiana Pacers Forward's Return Questionable With Sprained Ankle

The Indiana Pacers' chances of defeating the Miami Heat in Game 5 of their 2012 NBA Playoffs series just took a hit. Star forward Danny Granger has suffered an apparent ankle injury late in the second quarter, and he was taken back to the locker room to be treated. The Pacers say Granger is questionable to return to the game.

Granger suffered the injury shooting a three-pointer from the left wing. He was guarded very closely by LeBron James and, because of that, he stepped on James' foot as he landed. He then spent the duration of the Heat's possession on the ground in pain. The Pacers eventually called timeout to get Granger out of the game.
