TORONTO (AP) - Pacers All-Star swingman Danny Granger is returning from an 11-game absence and will come off the bench against the Raptors.

Indiana coach Jim O’Brien said on Sunday that Granger is likely to start when the Pacers play Portland at home on Wednesday.

Granger has been out since Feb. 18 with a partially torn tendon in his right foot. The Pacers went 6-5 without Granger, their leading scorer. He is averaging 25 points and 5.0 rebounds.

O’Brien said Granger will play limited minutes until his conditioning improves.

Indiana entered Sunday’s contest two games out of the final playoff spot in the East.
