(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indiana Pacers will be without forward Danny Granger for at least four to six weeks.

An MRI taken on Monday showed that the Pacers' leading scorer tore the plantar fascia in his right foot during last Saturday night's game with the Clippers in Los Angeles.

Granger suffered the injury early in the third quarter against the Clippers, crumpling to the ground after taking a pass from Troy Murphy.

He was assisted to the locker room by the pacers' training staff.

The fifth-year forward from New Mexico has been bothered by a sore heel since training camp.

The injury will not require surgery and Granger will begin rehabilitation immediately.

Granger was averaging 24.4 points per game.

Indiana takes on the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday night at Conseco Fieldhouse.

The Pacers are 6-12 overall but have struggled of late, losing five in a row and nine of their last ten.
