INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Pacers swingman Danny Granger will miss the first three weeks of the season with a left calf injury.
Granger missed the last several preseason games with the injury, and the Pacers said Monday that they are holding Granger out as a ''precautionary measure'' to ensure he is ready to play when he returns.
Last season, Granger missed all but five games with a tendon injury in his left knee.
The team said there is no concern about the previously injured knee.
Granger is expected to play a key role for Indiana this season as it tries to dethrone two-time NBA champion Miami.
