INDIANAPOLIS -- 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.
