Default Wavetable vs Granular Synthesis

Can someone explain for me the difference between wavetable and granular synthesis? As I understand it, with wavetable synthesis, you take a source wave and break it down to its component wave forms across time. But isn't that what granular synthesis is doing as well? What am I not understanding correctly? Thanks for any insight.

This is a pretty good explanation of the different types of synthesis.

Granular Synthesis works on the same principle as wavetable synthesis, except it pulls from a multitude of samples, rather than oscillator waveforms. It then plays the samples back in 10-50 ms “grains,” rather than playing back entire samples.
