INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -Indiana Pacers forward Danny Granger missed Wednesday night's game against the Charlotte Bobcats due to a sprained right wrist.
Granger leads the Pacers with 18.6 points per game, and had started 66 of Indiana's 67 games.
Granger had previously injured the wrist, but played through it. He jammed it in Monday's win over New York, and coach Jim O'Brien said he can't pull it back into a shooting motion because of swelling.
``It's serious enough for a guy that hasn't been out with an injury to be out,'' O'Brien said. ``Danny says he's a quick healer. We'll find out.''
Kareem Rush started in Granger's place.
The Pacers already were without two of their top players, forward Jermaine O'Neal and point guard Jamaal Tinsley.
O'Neal has missed 28 straight games with a bone bruise in his left knee. He had limited participation in the team's shootaround on Wednesday, but isn't ready to play.
Tinsley has missed 22 of the previous 25 games with a sore left knee. O'Brien said Tinsley is ``not close'' to being ready to play.
