Danny Granger health update: Will miss first 3 weeks of season
So, Danny Granger is out three weeks with a strained left calf. This will surely ignite more cries of “he’s done” in cyberspace and on the airwaves, no matter how illogical that argument seems for a muscle strain. Injuries are like bad reputations. Once you have one for a prolonged period of time, it’s nearly impossible to repair your image.
The question becomes, is this merely a blip in Granger’s comeback from the knee issues that kept him out of all but five games last season? Or is it a sign that his 30-year-old body is breaking down and he’s headed for a chain reaction of injuries that will plague him through the rest of his career?
