Indiana Pacers forward Danny Granger, the team's leading scorer, will be out for at least four weeks with a foot injury.
The team said Tuesday that Granger would miss a minimum of four to six weeks with a torn right plantar fascia, the tissue across the bottom of the foot connecting the heel and toes. The Pacers say Granger won't need surgery and is starting rehabilitation.
Granger left the floor in the third quarter of Saturday's game against the Los Angeles Clippers. Granger is averaging 24.4 points a game this season for the Pacers, who have lost nine of their last 10 games following a five-game winning streak.
The Pacer's second leading scorer behind Granger is guard Dahntay Jones who is averaging 15.3 Points per game.
Granger's energy and range will be deeply missed for the weeks ahead.
