INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – The Indiana Pacers’ Lance Stephenson will not play in Friday’s game against the Portland Trail Blazers after he was injured on Tuesday.

Stephenson took a hard fall Tuesday, bruising his back. He tried to get back on the court Friday, but his back would not loosen up, the team said.

Danny Granger will start in his place.

The Pacers take on the Trail Blazers at Bankers Life Fieldhouse at 7 p.m.
