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. Jun 17 - 4:24 PM

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.
Apr 20 - 11:12 AM

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.
Mar 7 - 1:30 PM

Danny Granger, who was recently acquired in a trade with Miami at the deadline, may finally join the Suns soon.

It's officially too late for him to join a contender if he were to be bought out by the Suns, so Granger has no choice but to suit up for the Suns if he wants to keep playing. That being said, Granger wouldn't be in the rotation upon his arrival in Phoenix, so owners can safely leave him on the waiver wire in almost all leagues.
Mar 4 - 11:04 AM

The Suns are still unsure if Danny Granger will remain on the team.

"We're still trying to figure out what to do," general manager Ryan McDonough said. The Suns do have a surplus at small forward and we all know how they feel about playing too many guards, so Granger is probably going to have a tough time staying on the team. He has no fantasy value right now.
Feb 20 - 3:24 PM

Danny Granger has been sent to the Suns as part of the Goran Dragic trade.

Granger has been off the radar in standard fantasy leagues for three years now, and a move to a crowded rotation in Phoenix isn't going to do him any favors. With season averages of 6.3 points and 1.0 three-pointer per game on 40.1 percent shooting from the field, it's safe to leave Granger on the waiver wire in all leagues.
Feb 19 - 3:15 PM

The Heat are trying to attach Danny Granger to a deal with Norris Cole.

It's still hard to understand why the Heat signed Granger to a two-year deal this summer. Granger just hasn't been the same player he was since his knee injury, but he was fantastic a few seasons ago. He can be ignored in almost all fantasy leagues.

Danny Granger knocked down his 1,000th career 3-pointer while starting in place of Luol Deng (calf) on Tuesday, finishing with 14 points, six rebounds, two assists and one steal in 36 minutes.

The minutes were easily a season-high and Granger is an uninspiring option even when Deng is on the sidelines. He picked up a DNP-CD in Miami's last game and the only positive for deep-league owners is that he's been able to stay healthy for most of the season. That said, he's worth at least considering if Deng and Dwyane Wade (hammy) are both ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Mavs.
Jan 27 - 10:21 PM

Danny Granger is in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game vs. the Bucks with Luol Deng (sore calf) unavailable.

Granger doesn't have a favorable matchup tonight, and he has failed to do much in the past with the starting role. Through three starts this season Granger has averaged 4.7 points on 41.7 percent shooting, not great. James Ennis will likely see some extended minutes off the bench, but he too makes for a very risky option in most leagues.
Jan 27 - 6:54 PM

Danny Granger started in place of Luol Deng (illness) on Wednesday, but failed to do much, finishing with just three points and one rebound on 1-of-3 shooting in 20 minutes.

He also had a steal, a block and a 3-pointer, but daily owners who rolled the dice needed a whole lot more from Granger tonight. Deng shouldn't be out long, so look for Granger to crawl back into his cave sooner than later.
Jan 21 - 9:53 PM

Danny Granger will start at SF on Wednesday with Luol Deng (illness) unavailable.

James Ennis should also see significant minutes and it's hard to rely on either guy for temporary value, as they've both squandered expanded opportunities in the past. Granger went 3-of-5 from the field on Tuesday but prior to that he was riding a long shooting slump, and he's only worth considering as a desperation source of points and 3-pointers.
Jan 21 - 6:40 PM

Danny Granger scored three points with five rebounds and one steal in 22 minutes against the Blazers on Thursday.

It was all good just a week ago. Granger has just 11 points combined in his last three games and hopefully you didn't add him. If you did, cut him for a Knick.
Jan 9 - 1:08 AM

Danny Granger scored five points with one rebound, two steals and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes against the Rockets on Saturday.

He just couldn't make his shots, burying only 1-of-6 from the field. Granger is still getting playing time and he should be better his next time out on Sunday. Although, there is always the concern of knee soreness. He's not a great add in standard leagues.
Jan 4 - 12:40 AM

Danny Granger played well again on Wednesday against the Pacers, scoring 14 points with three rebounds, one steal and two 3-pointers.

He played 25 minutes and that's about where he's going to be while he's healthy. The Heat continue to play Luol Deng as a stretch four in a number of their lineups throughout games, so that's how Granger has been able to get high minutes. If you want to add Granger and ride the hot streak, it doesn't seem like a bad idea. However, if you're cutting a guy you're going to miss to get him, it's not a great move considering the injury risk of Granger.

Danny Granger looked like the 2011 version of himself during a 102-101 loss to the Magic on Monday, scoring a season-high 21 points with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and six 3-pointers.

He was in a groove and made his first five attempts from beyond the arc tonight. Granger is coming off an 18-point game on Saturday and is suddenly one of the hottest bench players. As great as he's been, we had to triple-check to make sure he didn't suffer an injury after the game. For what it's worth the word "knee" has appeared in our Granger blurbs 226 times, so it's hard to get too excited about adding him and his high risk.
