12:20 PM ET 11.07 | The Indiana Pacers were one of the league's healthiest teams last year, and that fueled their rise to the No. 3 seed. That won't be the case this season, though. Star forward Danny Granger, already out with knee pain, will now miss three more months due to another injection to fix his left patella tendon. Granger has been the Pacers' leading scorer for each of the past five years, so this is a huge loss. Paul George and Gerald Green must step up to fill the void until Granger comes back.

Maybe it was too early to crown them Central division champs? Bulls, with or without Rose, are a better team...

you never like to see a team in a small market lose a significent player.... This will hurt them all season and into the play-offs. Their seeding will be effected. They'll be playing much tougher talent earlier on come play-offs....
