Granger's void already filled in Indy

Danny Granger's season officially ended Thursday, when the Indiana Pacers announced that their veteran forward will undergo surgery on his left knee that will keep him out the remainder of the schedule.

Really, Granger's season never got started, as patellar tendinosis sidelined him late in the preseason. He returned for five games after the trade deadline, but lingering soreness will shut him down for good.
