Brandon Roy May Be Done For The Year (Or Longer)


It seems the curse of Sam Bowie has struck again in Portland.  Portland Trail Blazers general manager Rich Cho has confirmed that All-Star guard Brandon Roy will be getting a significant break from playing hopes of healing his ailing knees:

I can tell you it will most likely be for an extended period.  We’ve talked about (ending his season) and it’s a possibility, but we want to explore a couple of other things first.

Roy has already missed nine-games this season.  While Roy isn’t officially done for the year the issue is that he has no meniscus in either knee which is a chronic condition so it’s unlikely to resolve soon, or possible ever.  After Roy signed a max contract after last season this is a huge blow to the Blazers.
