Indiana Pacers forward Lance Stephenson is out for Friday night's game against the visiting Portland Trail Blazers because of a back injury.

Forward Danny Granger will start in place of Stephenson.

Stephenson injured his lower back during the Pacers' 89-85 win over the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday. He is averaging 14.1 points, 7.2 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game this season.
