Pacers' Granger out vs. Mavs
Granger's absence came two nights after he scored a season-high 36 points in a 125-115 victory at Houston. He also had seven rebounds, four assists and three steals.
Granger was out a month earlier this season with a heel injury.
T.J. Ford played 21 minutes despite being a game-time decision with a sore groin after scoring 23 points to help knock off the Rockets in his hometown of Houston.
Ford led the Texas Longhorns to the 2003 Final Four.
