Pacers Stand Firm At Trade Deadline

Last updated on Friday, February 22, 2013

(Indianapolis, IN) - The Indiana Pacers begin a home-and-home series tonight against the Detroit Pistons at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

Indiana did not shuffle one of the league's most formidable rosters before yesterday's 3:00 trade deadline, allowing Danny Granger's return to hopefully play out as a blockbuster mid-season acquisition.

Granger could be in the lineup tonight against Detroit after missing the entire season with tendinitis in his left knee.

The Pacers are 33-21 without Granger and started the second half of the season by routing the New York Knicks 125-to-91 in Indianapolis Wednesday night.

The Pistons are 22-34 on the season but have four wins in their last six games.

Starting guard Brandon Knight hyperextended his right knee during Wednesday's 105-99 win over the Charlotte Bobcats and may be unavailable for tonight's game at the Fieldhouse.

Tipoff is at 7:00.
