(Indianapolis, IN) - Danny Granger could make his much anticipated return to the lineup tonight when the Indiana Pacers host the Charlotte Bobcats at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

Indiana is third in the Eastern Conference with a 31-21 record entering tonight's game.
Charlotte has one win against two losses to the Pacers, including a one point victory in their season opener in Charlotte.

Tipoff tonight is at 7:00.
