INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Pacers forward Danny Granger could miss another week with a sore left knee.

Granger missed the first 54 games with the same injury and sat out the second half of Sunday night's victory over Chicago after re-aggravating the knee injury.

Just hours before Indiana and Boston were to meet Wednesday night, the team issued a statement saying an MRI done on Granger's knee showed no new damage to the knee. The team says he will be re-evaluated next week.

Granger has led the Pacers in scoring each of the last five seasons. The team did not make a move before the February trade deadline in hopes Granger would give them another outside shooting presence.

The Pacers (38-22) lead the Central Division and are No. 2 in the Eastern Conference.
