Indiana Pacers forward Danny Granger's comeback is off to a good start.

The 30-year-old former All-Star missed most of last season after having surgery on his left knee.

He got through practices on Saturday and Sunday, the first two days of training camp, then sat out Monday.

Teammates Roy Hibbert and David West said Monday that Granger looked good during the sessions, and coach Frank Vogel said Granger was one of the dominant players both days.

Granger says he's feeling good after the practices. He expects to play throughout the preseason, but he is focused on being ready for the regular-season opener Oct. 29 against Orlando.

Vogel says he expects Granger, who has averaged 18.1 points per game in an eight-year career, to play starter minutes.
