Danny Granger Injury Update: Pacers Star Won't Return After Aggravating Sprained Ankle

Danny Granger's return to the lineup after suffering a sprained ankle late in the first half of Game 5 of the Pacers' 2012 NBA Playoffs second-round series against the Miami Heat was short-lived. Granger came down again on LeBron James, this time while trying to dribble by him early in the third quarter, and he will not return, the Pacers announced.

Granger was trying to dribble the ball down the floor when he ran into James. He immediately came up limping, hopping on one leg to the sidelines by the Heat bench. After staying down for a few minutes, he eventually went back to the locker room. A few minutes later, the Pacers announced he would not return.
