My apologies to Danny Granger. I mocked him earlier today for seemingly not knowing the regulation size of a softball. But that was based on just a written quote. As you can see in the video above, “notorious sweller” Granger actually characterizes the size of his swollen ankle as “a small softball — if that exists. Maybe a baseball.” He adds that it’s “not crazy big” and that he has “had a worse ankle sprain where I’ve had to miss like two weeks but this one” isn’t that bad by comparison.
Roy Hibbert, David West and Dahntay Jones also offer there thoughts leading up to Game 6 tonight. Jones offers his thoughts on what will happen if Granger can’t go or has to play only reduced minutes. “Danny is out leading scorer, but our parts are interchangeable, and I think we’ll be OK,” said Jones.
