UPDATE: While Danny Granger expects to be back in Indiana's starting lineup next season, the Pacers may be better off with him in a different role.

Mark Boyle, the radio play-by-play voice of the Pacers, said on the Damon Bruce Show in San Francisco on Monday that the addition of Granger will help give the team depth, regardless of what role he plays. But he also felt that Granger would work well as a reserve, at least initially.

"Having seen this team play every night this season and in season's past, my opinion would be that they would be really well suited -- assuming that he can come back, which is not a give-in -- to play him off the bench, Boyle said. "The burden wouldn't be as big. The minutes wouldn't be as big. He'd be playing against second-line players. I think that would be a really good way to get him incorporated back into the mix."
