Danny Granger will be waived by the Pistons on Monday.

It's almost hard to believe just five seasons ago Granger was coming off his third consecutive 20-points-per-game season. He will need a month to rehab his current foot injury and hopefully he makes it back to the NBA.

Danny Granger is a strong candidate to be waived on Monday.

The Pistons have to make one final cut, and Stan Van Gundy has already implied that Granger is not a part of his team's future. Granger is still in Arizona rehabbing his knee, and SVG called the possibility of trading him "doubtful." We're probably sort of at the end of the road with him. We took it as far as we could, hoping to get a look at him, but he hasn't been ready to come back," Van Gundy said.

Stan Van Gundy implied on Sunday that Danny Granger (plantar fasciitis) is not part of Detroit's future plans.

"I think at some point this year you will see him with somebody," said Van Gundy of Granger. Granger is under contract with the Pistons for the 2015-16 season for the sum of $2.1 million, but there's still a chance he's waived or traded away before the regular-season begins. Either way, he won't be a significant factor in Detroit's rotation, and he can safely be ignored in all leagues on draft day.

Danny Granger is still rehabbing a bout of plantar fasciitis.

That's ominous news for the oft-injured Granger, who has far more mileage than his age (32) might suggest. He may still join the Pistons next month, assuming he's healthy, but his days as a fantasy asset are long gone.

Danny Granger (foot) could join the Pistons next month.

Granger is rehabbing in Arizona, but Van Gundy thinks he will be able to rejoin the team next month. "I think it's better for him and for us if he stays right there in Arizona and does his rehab and when he gets to a point that he's ready to play and compete, then we will bring him in," Van Gundy said. We'll keep an eye on Granger's rehab, but he should be ignored in all fantasy leagues.

Danny Granger (foot) will not be ready for camp and is still rehabbing in Phoenix.

He might not play at all this season. Granger can be ignored in all leagues.

Danny Granger (foot) is rehabbing a foot injury in Phoenix.

He just can't stay healthy. Granger scored at least 24 points per game in the 2008-09 and 2009-10 seasons, but his decline has been one of the sharpest in this millennium,

Danny Granger will likely be the first player to be released by the Pistons.

Stan Van Gundy has said that he wouldn't rule out the possibility of Granger sticking around, but he admitted that he has "significant health problems." Granger is well past his prime and wouldn't have a role in Detroit anyways, so it would make a lot of sense for the Pistons to move on.

Stan Van Gundy won't rule out the possibility of Danny Granger sticking around in Detroit.

"It's trying to sort out exactly what he wants, what we want, where his health is and all that, so that'll take some time to sort through," Van Gundy said of Granger. "Obviously great respect for him as a player, and as a person (he's) everything we've heard, but he's had some significant health problems. We'll try to figure that out in the next couple of weeks." Granger has been a constant injury risk for several years now, and the Pistons' roster is starting to fill up. If Granger does end up staying with Detroit, he will have a very limited role and he won't be an option in fantasy leagues.

The Pistons have yet to decide if they will retain Danny Granger.

Detroit could waive him, package him in another deal, or just keep him to add some depth to the roster. It's unclear if he'll be on the Pistons opening night roster, but what is clear is that he'll be a negligible option in standard fantasy leagues regardless of where he winds up.

Danny Granger was traded to the Pistons as part of Thursday's three-player deal with the Suns.

This was a pure salary-dump for Phoenix as they attempt to clear space for LaMarcus Aldridge, as Detroit reportedly only sent back a 2020 second-round pick. Granger may get some minutes as a 3-point gunner off Stan Van Gundy's bench, but he's not a guy to bother with in fantasy drafts.

Danny Granger has opted in with the Suns for next season.

While he said he was undecided after the year, it really a no-brainer for Granger. He will get $2.1 million for the upcoming season after not even seeing the court for the Suns after the trade deadline. He'll really need something magical to happen to revitalize his career.

Danny Granger is undecided about picking up his player option for next season.

Granger will spend the summer working with the Suns training staff in an attempt to get himself healthy, and it's hard to envision Granger earning the $2.1 million he's slated to make if he does indeed opt out.

Danny Granger will join the Suns once their road trip ends on Saturday in Cleveland.

Granger will join a crowded rotation in Phoenix and it's doubtful that he logs any meaningful minutes right out of the gate. Hopefully Phoenix's world-class medical staff can bring some life into Granger's legs, but it's safe to leave him on the wire in all but the deepest of leagues.
