Danny Granger had an injury-plagued 2012-13 season, appearing in just five games and eventually being sidelined for the end of the season. It seems that Granger is on his way back, and while he is limited in the things he can do he has started playing a little one-on-one basketball, according to head coach Frank Vogel.
Vogel on Granger: "He played some one-on-one stuff. He’s still limited, but he’s on schedule…We’re very encouraged with where he’s at."

Granger is expected to be ready for opening night and Vogel seems to be encouraged with his player’s progress.
It will certainly be interesting to see what remains of Granger, as it feels as though we have not seen him play in forever. A lot of trade rumors have surrounded the Indiana star, who has seemingly been forgotten due to the emergence of Roy Hibbert and especially Paul George.
Granger has said that he expects to start next season and while Vogel is open to inserting Danny back into the starting lineup, he will have to fight for his spot with Lance Stephenson.
