Granulocyte size after activation

I have noted that the size of granulocytes approximately doubles in full 
blood after incubation with lipopolysaccharide (LPS).  I'm working with 
unfixed, unlysed samples analysed by flow cytometry.

Is this dramatic increase in size due to phagocytosis of immune 
complexes?  Is this a normal observation?

In advance, thanks!
